    Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    Refurbishment was to be from Jan to April, then to June 1st, now they are hoping September 14th maybe the day.

    Disney sure has had there difficulties with this off the rack coaster.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Honestly it may be better from them to just replace the ride. I like the ride but it may be time for it to go. Especially with incidences that have happened cause hasn't there been like 2 or 3. Which my opinion is too many for the time that it has been open.

    I'm not a gigantic fan of this one but, we haven't ridden it in a while so I'd be happy if it were reopened for our AK day in September!

    I can't tell you how upset I am over this.

    I just can't.

    Because I'm not.

    Anyways, I understand the whole Chester and Hester's theme concept. I do. But it shouldn't have taken direct explanation to know it...

    I'm sorry, I never got past how hokey of a job they did plopp'n that mini little land there. I'm always disappointed when Disney doesn't imagineer well. Setting aside the overall safety of the that attraction for their CMs topic.

    Re: Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    Like i like the ride some what because its another roller coaster but the wait that there is for it when i am there never really worth it. If i can wait 10-15 min for it then yeah i will ride it but 20+ not really worth it. Its been several trips since i have been on it and i don't really mind it. I think get rid of it and put a better more thrilling roller coaster there that doesn't look cheap.

    Re: Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    I absolutely agree with the comments about that area of AK. Honestly, my husband and I hate it. We feel like it is just so anti-Disney. What really gets us is the game area. It takes a Disney park and makes it feel like a carnival; Tacky and focused on money. It's the one thing they've done on property that every time I see it I think to myself that Walt would be really unhappy.

    I never liked this carnival themed area either. It makes me wonder what Imagineering was thinking on this one! My guess is that it is just a "placeholder" for a future expansion project, just like Toontown was in the Magic Kingdom.

    Re: Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    It is difficult to think of Toon a a placeholder, it was there what 22 years?

    My thought was there just wasn't enough attractions for a full day touring at that time and it was an easy fix for that end of the park.

    Ak has never been a full day park for us. We usually knock out a few things then move on. Everest was a good addition, but Chester & Hester's is somewhat of a joke.

    Re: Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    I agree, that AK is no longer a full day park for us either. We usually use that day as our rest day. We can sleep in on that day, spend all the time we need at AK, and still be back to resort early enough to just hang out at the pool or whatever. When I go to AK, as long as I do Kali, Bugs Life, Dinosaur and Safari I am happy. Whatever else we see is icing on the cake.




    April 2001 - All Star Movies
    September 2002 - All Star Music
    May 2004 - Pop Century
    October 2006 - All Star Movies
    October 2008 - Pop Century (1 night solo tour)
    June 2010 - Pop Century

    Hope to be taking a Cruise on Disney Magic in 2012...fingers crossed.

    Re: Delayed again, Primeval Whirl

    i dont think this park has ever been a full day for me... generally we hit it early in the morning and we move on from there... this just proves that this attraction needs to be replaced.... trust me... the big time Disney fan might not even miss it...

    I sure wouldn't! There's so much more the Imagineers could do with that area.
