More than $157,000 will be donated to the families of four people killed in October's Dreamworld ride tragedy after the theme park reopened at the weekend.

Ardent Leisure CEO Deborah Thomas said more than 6000 guests attended the opening, during which the park promised to donate $25 from each ticket sold to a Red Cross appeal.

Across two days, $157,225 was raised.

"We will continue to offer our support to the families who lost their loved ones," Ms Thomas said in a statement.

"Our talented Dreamworld team was ready to reopen our doors and was touched by the warmth and kindness shown by so many of our visitors this weekend."

The park was noticeably quiet for the opening with many key attractions, including all nine major thrill rides, closed.

The Thunder River Rapids ride, where Cindy Low, Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett and Roozi Araghi were killed on October 25, has been decommissioned.
