Dreamworld to reopen after ride deaths

AAP logoAAP 9/12/2016

Gold Coast theme park Dreamworld is set to reopen following the Thunder River Rapids tragedy, however most of its major attractions won't be operating.

All nine of the major thrill rides at the Gold Coast park will be shut while a safety review ordered after the deaths of four people in October is conducted.

The Buzzsaw, Hot Wheels Sidewinder, Mick Doohan's Motocoaster, Pandamonium, Tail Spin, The Claw, The Giant Drop, Tower of Terror II and Wipeout will all stay closed, as well as the Dreamworld Express, Rocky Hollow Log Ride and Shockwave.

All other Dreamworld attractions are due to be operating as usual, including the other family and kids rides.

WhiteWater World's slides, pools and cabanas will all be fully operational, as will Tiger Island.

Dreamworld's managers faced criticism after initially planning to partially reopen the park just three days after the tragedy, before police put a halt to those plans due to the ongoing investigation.

Dreamworld has previously announced the Thunder River Rapids ride will be decommissioned.
