Disney World is continuing to demolish one of the Disney Parks attractions in Animal Kingdom — Primeval Whirl.

We knew this would come as last year, Walt Disney World announced Primeval Whirl is permanently closed. The news came after months of Primeval Whirl, the popular spinning dinosaur-themed coaster ride in DinoLand, USA, remaining closed throughout the summer of 2019, and it was unclear why.

Inside the Magic has been updating our audience on the demolition progress over the last few weeks, and today, we are sharing that one of the two tracks at Primeval Whirl is practically gone.

Thanks to bioreconstruct on Twitter, we can see the current state of Primeval Whirl at Disney’s Animal Kingdom where one of the two tracks is mostly gone. Per bioreconstruct:

Demolition continues at Primeval Whirl. One of the two tracks is mostly gone.

bioreconstruct also shared the following photo of the demolition, which shows the construction vehicles and just how much of the track is now gone:

At this time we do not know what (if anything) will be replacing Primeval Whirl at DinoLand, USA, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information. If you are visiting Animal Kingdom in the near future, you can still experience the fan-favorite ride, DINOSAUR, or TriceraTop Spin. Guests can also put their skills to the test by playing iconic boardwalk-style games to win a special prize!

If you never had the chance to experience Primeval Whirl prior to its demolition, the official Disney description read:

Sweep through a series of sudden dips and turns as your time machine spins on its own path. Whiz by cartoon dinosaurs hastily preparing for their impending extinction and glimpse a shower of kooky meteors.

Glide through a fossilized jigsaw puzzle of dinosaur bones, before leaving the past behind—just in time!
