The park authorities have been forced to close down as four of its visitors died on 25th October, due to a malfunctioned ‘Thunder River Rapids’ ride. After six weeks of the tragic accident, the park authorities have announced their plan to reopen during the school holidays in Queensland.
On Saturday, 10th December, the park will open some of its rides but other rides will remain closed before completing the four-tier safety review.
It has been found that the neighbouring WhiteWater World will also reopen the pools and the slides.
The authorities of Dreamworld have informed that they have received clearance from Workplace Health and Safety Queensland. They have also informed that safety officials have issued a total of three prohibition notices and seven improvement notices after the inspection.
The CEO of Dreamworld, Craig Davidson has informed that they will not rush the safety process of the park. Thus, rides like Buzzsaw, Tower of Terror and the Claw will not open immediately. To ensure absolute safety of the visitors, Thunder River Rapids ride will be decommissioned.
