Description from PassPorter's Walt Disney World Guidebook:

Chester and Hester cooked up a dizzy bit of fun for Primeval Whirl, a totally whacky wild mouse coaster (with style). Your round “time machine” car spins as it goes around tight curves, over mild drops, and even through the jaws of a dinosaur. (What else?) Two identical coasters each boast 13 spinning, four-person ride vehicles. 48”/122 cm height restriction. Health warning. Must transfer from wheelchair to ride. Alex’s KidTip: “This is a crazy ride! It goes so fast!”

Anyone of the generation that have ridden the carnival ride "The Mouse" will be familiar with this ride. The vehicles are larger but the premise is the same. Not a good choice for pregnant women nor those with back issues.

We love this ride! Super fun and great for laughs. Well worth it, especially if you "get" the theme of the land.

We rode this multiple times & laughed so hard. It was fun & what a great memory. You can also get an overlook of this part of the park,

We had so much fun on this! It definitely whips and whirls you around!

It took me several years to ride it becaus it looks like a standard carnival ride but went on this year and it was actually fun.
Feisty Fairy gave this a rating of 6 on 06/10/2016 at 2:42:40 pm EDT

Standard ride you can find at many amusement parks and fairs. Save your time for the uniquely Disney attractions and ride this one someplace else.
AeroScott gave this a rating of 4 on 06/10/2016 at 12:05:36 pm EDT

Fun ride with lots of turns and spins. Not worth standing in a long line but if lines are short it is a great attraction!
Csb10salum gave this a rating of 7 on 06/10/2016 at 11:36:36 am EDT

Fun if the line is short. Wild mouse type ride, the spinning seats made it less jerky and more exciting.
Big G gave this a rating of 7 on 06/05/2016 at 5:55:56 pm EDT

Really rough ride. You can bang your head if you're not careful. Gives me a headache. It's a must-avoid for me.
Marie the Cat gave this a rating of 3 on 06/05/2016 at 12:15:16 pm EDT

you'll get squished if you are the smallest in the group!
phytage gave this a rating of 6 on 06/05/2016 at 11:40:29 am EDT

Ride is OK but not a typical Disney experience.
FARMERGIRL gave this a rating of 6 on 06/03/2016 at 10:31:35 pm EDT

This ride can be fun, but it just really hurt my legs. They cram too many people into the cars, and the bars can be very painful on your legs.
dodgersle gave this a rating of 3 on 05/27/2016 at 3:47:59 pm EDT

Kind of a throw back to old rides. Lots of fun. We rode several times.
txtink gave this a rating of 9 on 05/27/2016 at 12:39:41 pm EDT

Surprisingly fun.
norm & linda gave this a rating of 7 on 05/26/2016 at 11:10:39 pm EDT

Not as fond of "Mouse Trap" style coasters, but this one is really fun.
