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

Though we knew this would come eventually since last year Walt Disney World announced Primeval Whirl is permanently closed, seeing the ride be demolished right before our eyes is still a bit shocking.

The news of Primeval Whirl permanently closing 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.

Last week, we reported that the demolition on Primeval Whirl was continuing as parts of the attraction were being removed — including part of the track! Now, we are seeing the track turn into a pile of rubble as Disney continues to demolish the ride.

Courtesy of Mikey Views on Twitter, we can see portions of the track are now destroyed and in a pile:

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!
