Shares in Dreamworld operator Ardent Leisure have dropped almost 20 per cent following a fatal accident at the Gold Coast theme park yesterday.

Ardent shares, which fell 7.8 per cent in the immediate aftermath of the accident that killed four people on a 30-year-old water raft ride, plummeted in the first few minutes of trade today.

At 1010 AEDT, they had recovered some of the losses but were still down 22 cents, or 9.4 per cent, at $2.13.
