The tragedy at Dreamworld this week had a negative impact on Gold Coast’s tourism. Four tourists died on the Thunder River Rapids ride and as a result, the theme park has suffered a loss in tourism business. Gold Coast Tourism chief executive Martin Winter said that in the wake of this incident, Dreamworld has been shut down, while the region’s other major theme parks – Movie World, Wet’n’Wild and Sea World are also suffering loss of visitors. They are also facing the impact of this sudden mishap.
Mr. Winter said that the theme parks will, of course, work hard to regain their confidence and image of being safe and family friendly. He said that a full assessment of the impact of the tragedy on the industry will be made in the coming weeks and they will focus on grieving with the victims’ families. He also said that they are confident that the future of Gold Coast tourism industry would not be affected long-term and the theme parks would bounce back in no time at all!
