Karma is taking its toll on Primeval Whirl in Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort. The attraction, which has been plagued with problems during its refurbishment, including causing injuries and even death to cast members, closed on January 17, 2011 and was initially scheduled to re-open on April 6 which was later extended to April 17, then to June 2 and now has been pushed back much further with a new scheduled re-opening date of September 15, 2011.
According to cast member Paul Chadkin, the refurbishments scheduled in January for the Backlot Tour and the Honey I Shrunk The Kids playground at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been postponed, possibly until September.
In addition, the official Walt Disney World site is now reporting that Primeval Whirl in Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been extended with a new re-opening date of April 17, 2011.
