24 Days: Primeval Whirl

Primeval Whirl

Primeval Whirl is our choice for #Day24 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown! Get ready to spin back in time!

Hello everyone, and welcome to My Dreams of Disney!  Today we are taking a look at Primeval Whirl in our #DisneyWorldCountdown series!  This is a deceptively cool ride!  It’s a thrill ride, but it’s not just a tame roller coaster.  When you ride Primeval Whirl, get ready, because you are going to spin almost as much as you do on Kali River Rapids!

Here is the Time Machine, your mode of transportation on Primeval Whirl!

Your mode of transportation starts with this baby — the Time Machine!  As you can see, she seats four comfortably — or perhaps uncomfortably depending on how much spinning you do!  This round vehicle will transport you back in time, to the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth, just prior to their extinction!

Get Ready. Get Set! Your Time Machine is taking you back to a time you won’t soon forget!

This ride is a lot of fun for me.  If you’ve ever been to Disneyland and California Adventure Park, there is a ride there called Goofy’s Sky School, and that attraction is built on the same spinning vehicle design as Primeval Whirl.  The ride feels like you are going to go flying right off the end of the track, but at the last moment, you turn, often in 90 degree turns, and that’s when the spinning begins!  Couple that with up and down small drops, and speed increases, and you know what?  You are in for the ride of your life!

I really like this attraction, and hope you do to, but tell me, is this your cup of tea, or do you go get a Jumbo Turkey Leg while others are riding?  Let me know in the comments, and in the meantime, here’s a bonus photo of Sophie eating that turkey leg!

33 Days til Disneyland – Goofy’s Sky School!

Before you know it, we’ll be under 30 days until our trip to Disneyland!  For today, though, we are at day 33, and we are taking a look at Goofy’s Sky School, which is located at Paradise Pier in Disney’s California Adventure park.

The sky school is a coaster similar to the Primeval Whirl ride at Animal Kingdom — except that it is themed after Goofy’s flight training school!  With over 12oo feet of twisting, turning, up and down track, you’ll fast learn that Goofy is probably not the best one to teach us how to fly!  This attraction is based primarily off of Goofy’s Glifer, a 1940s cartoon.  Here is a YouTube video of Goofy’s Glider for you to enjoy!

Goofy’s Sky School is an attraction that I think I want to try out. Do you ride it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!
