    Since there are so many people hating on this ride, I'll jump in. I love this ride and so do my kids. It's fast and fun. Probably don't want to have eaten a big meal before. Just do it!

    Really jerky ride. Beats you up! Skip this one!!

    Favorite ride in animal kingdom. Haters always find something to hate. It's fun and fast. Yes it's a bit jerky and jarring but that's the theme. Just try it and find out for yourself.

    Its a cross between Goofys Fly school and Maters Junkyard Jamboree at DCA

    This ride is GREAT. It's a cute small rollercoaster. I know it's jerky but don't hate!

    A fun coaster for the faint if heart - WaltCast Podcast

    Bad life choice...

    Jen Simpson · November 28, 2010
  • Michael S.

    This ride was a poor choice on many levels. A tid bit bumpy and a touch abrupt. Not recommended for small children or someone that has just eaten a turkey leg.

  • Travis H.

    I was actually very surprised that I liked this ride. I go to Disney all the time and I always skipped this ride, I decided to take a chance on it this time and I liked it.. very weird.

    Really weird. Doesn't seem like Disney ride.

    Jerky ride, but a fun little rollercoaster! Don't get the hate for this ride, I LOVE IT!

    This ride is a great way to loosen up kidney stones. I know from personal experience. Ouch.

    Aljon Go · October 22, 2013
  • Jeanine P.

    it seems like a carnival ride because dinoland is a traveling carnival themed area, if you understand the backstory it fits into Disney just fine

    Jeanine Presley · August 13, 2013
  • Sue S.

    Just right for a 7-year-old kid.

    Sue Spaight · April 6, 2013
  • Christopher B.

    Primeval whirl..48 inches or higher to ride. Tallest height requirement in the park.

    Christopher Brooks · April 2, 2013
  • Justin T.

    Both sides are exactly the same but in opposing directions. Good news for you coaster enthusiasts, however. This here counts as not only one, but two credits.

    Justin Taylor · March 7, 2013
  • Samantha E.

    Watch it. They do a hardcore break check at the end ( two of them ! ) I was fine till that snapped my neck off.

    Samantha Evans · February 1, 2013
  • Robert F.

    The fun part is at the end

    Robert Ferguson · January 24, 2013
  • Brittany W.

    This ride is super fun, everyone else is a hater!

    Brittany Wrenn · January 23, 2013
  • Kim F.

    It is not a smooth ride but very worth it if you like the Wild Mouse type of coaster

    Kim Frum · January 6, 2012
  • Carlton H.

    This ride is jerky and spins, not good if you just ate

    Carlton H · November 15, 2011
  • Sean H.

    My kids absolutely love this ride!

    Sean Herron · June 9
  • John

    If you love whiplash, this is your kind of ride.

    John · May 20
  • Kelly G.

    Hang on to your camera. It's rough going around the corners.

    Kelly Gaudreau · March 21
  • Francisco D.

    Fun and weird at the same time... This is a one-time ride for me

    Francisco Duran · March 5
  • Chaz P.

    Kids love it, not sure why 48 inches...

    Chaz Pike · February 23
  • Wendi R.

    The height requirement is 48" and they are extremely strict with it. 47.5" and they will not let you on.

    Wendi Raczynski Gill · August 24, 2013
  • Yash P.

    Rather jerky and low quality of a ride, also not one which lets 44" kids slide by, must be 48". Although it looks like a spin heavy ride, neither of us felt motion sickness/dizziness.

    Yash Plorer · July 31, 2013
  • Reb L.

    Funny the ride! :DD

    Reb Loera · May 27, 2013
  • Jennifer G.

    Such a jerky ride

    Jennifer Gartin · May 1, 2013
  • Jeanne W.

    Fun ride, but quite a workout if you have to plush someone in a wheelchair up all the ramps in the queue

    Jeanne Westphalen · April 1, 2013
  • Chad E.

    Kid was too short to ride

    Chad Evearitt · March 13, 2013
  • Kinan W.

    Not a fan. The ride is bumpy and brutal, and the track is not even that exciting.

    Kinan Wirastani · February 23, 2013
  • Andy F.

    This coaster feels more like a carnival ride than a Disney attraction.

    Andy Fisher · February 3, 2013
  • Ben P.

    Ride is really bumpy. Not smooth at all. I don't recommend riding it.

    Ben Paxton · December 21, 2012
  • Sheila H.

    This ride is a combination of a mini roller coaster and the Tilt-A-Whirl. There is a height requirement of 48"...not sure why. My 6 year old rode Expedition Everest but was not permitted on this ride.

    Sheila Hill · October 1, 2012
  • Bridget S.

    Thought this would be a bad ride....skipped it many years but tried it this time and loved it

    Bridget Sharp · February 2, 2012
  • Amy S.

    Don't spin to much or you'll hurl! :-X

    Amy Strelan · December 8, 2011
  • Dave B.

    If you don't want to get jerked around too much, sit in one of the two middle seats

    Dave Belin · November 25, 2011
  • Laurie S.

    I'm not a fan of these "mouse trap" kind of rides, but my kids love them.

    Laurie Smithwick · October 26, 2011
  • Renata F.

    Bem legal para quem tem filhos na faixa dos 10 anos
