Six weeks after Ride accident: Australia’s Dreamworld to reopen after fatal accident
Sydney, Nov 30: Dreamworld, the popular theme park in Australia’s Gold Coast in Queensland, is set to reopen on December 10, six weeks after four people died when a ride crashed.
The park was closed after two women and two men, between the ages of 32 and 42, were killed when its Thunder River Rapids ride malfunctioned on October 25.
Dreamworld CEO Craig Davidson said in a statement on Wednesday that Dreamworld and WhiteWater World would reopen following an “unprecedented multi-level safety review”, Xinhua news reported.
An inspection in November resulted in 10 improvement and prohibition notices issued for the theme parks.
However, the Thunder River Rapids ride involved in the fatal accident would be demolished.
