In response to the tragic deaths of 4 people last month on the Thunder River Rapid ride, Dreamworld has announced the ride will be demolished.
Dreamworld has this morning issued a statement announcing the Thunder River Rapid ride would be “permanently decommissioned”.
Parent company Ardent Leisure CEO Deborah Thomas said, “Out of respect for the memories of Cindy Low, Roozbeh Araghi, Kate Goodchild and Luke Dorsett, and their deeply affected families, the ride will be permanently decommissioned,” she said. The closure of the ride is the only respectful and appropriate course of action.”
Dreamworld also announced an independent engineering firm has been appointed to lead a safety review of all of Dreamworld’s and WhitewaterWorld’s rides and operating systems as well as an internal review by Dreamworld itself.
“No ride at Dreamworld will operate until the Workplace Health and Safety Audit has been completed and unless it passes the multi-level internal review process,” Ms Thomas said.
