Overview: Those wacky dino-maniacs Chester & Hester are at it again. First, it was tables, shelves and racks spilling over with dinosaur toys, trinkets and t-shirts at Chester & Hester’s. Now, crazed by anything cretaceous, they present Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama!, a fun fair complete with wacky midway games and rides. At this corny carny, guests can play Ringosaurus, toss beanbags into dinosaur jaws or hold on tight on Triceratop Spin and Primeval Whirl.
Attraction Description: This family-friendly “mini-land” adjacent to DinoLand U.S.A. features a dinosaur-themed midway and carnival with games and rides.
Opening: Midway and Triceratop Spin open 2001; Primeval Whirl in spring 2002
Location: Adjacent to DinoLand, U.S.A. in Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Triceratop Spin is a hub-and-spoke style attraction. Guests in 4-person vehicles (16) move up, down and around in a ride that magically becomes a giant spinning toy top. The top rises to reveal -- what else? -- a dinosaur!
Primeval Whirl is a coaster ride with 13 rider-controlled spinning cars. Chester and Hester’s homemade “time machine” is a wacky run that sends riders through curves, short drops and the jaws of a dinosaur.
Roughly 6-7 brightly colored arcade games are planned for the midway.
