The ride that killed four people at Dreamworld will never operate again and will be demolished, the owner of the Gold Coast theme park says.
The chief executive of Ardent Leisure, Deborah Thomas, says the only respectful thing to do after last month’s tragedy is to dismantle the Thunder River Rapids ride for good.
“Out of respect for the memories of Cindy Low, Roozi Araghi, Kate Goodchild and Luke Dorsett, and their deeply affected families, the ride will be permanently decommissioned,” she said on Wednesday. “The closure of the ride is the only respectful and appropriate course of action.”
As a reminder, in October, four adults have been killed in an incident at a theme park in Queensland
, Australia. Two people were thrown from the Thunder River Rapids Ride,and another two trapped, possibly in the conveyor belt system.
