    It won't surprise me if this is the end of Dreamworld, not in the immediate future but within a year or two. I feel bad for the staff, but the management and owners are having chickens come home to roost. Cutting corners on safety is false economy and I hope other executives elsewhere can learn something from this tragedy. Not only are lives more important than money, you make more money when the public at large can actually trust you. Goodwill means something.

    in a year or two the park will be thriving again and all will be forgotten,

    yes it was sad what happened....but life goes on,

    no way it closes because of this, and it probably will not hurt very much financially either

    Ride malfunctions at Dreamworld

    Updated: 4:44 pm, Friday, 27 January 2017

    An automatic sensor is believed to have triggered a brief shutdown on a Dreamworld ride on the Gold Coast, with guests strapped into it.

    Thrill seekers were left dangling from the top of the 119m-tall attraction known as the Giant Drop for about five minutes after the sensor was tripped on Friday.

    No fault was discovered and the ride was operating again after successful testing, a Dreamworld spokesman told AAP.

    The incident came just hours after the theme park announced the Giant Drop along with the Shockwave and Hot Wheels Sidewinder rides had been re-opened to guests following the deaths of four people on the now-decommissioned Thunder River Rapids ride in October.

    Dreamworld fatal accident: 'Industrial manslaughter' to be made offence in Queensland

    Updated 23 Aug 2017, 3:15pm

    Industrial manslaughter is set to become a criminal offence in Queensland following an independent review prompted by the death of four people on a Dreamworld water ride last year.

    Two men and two women were killed on the Thunder River Rapids ride at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast when the ride malfunctioned, throwing two people out and trapping two inside.

    Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace has moved to introduce legislation in State Parliament to make industrial manslaughter an offence.

    "Industrial manslaughter ... is about not only the individual but the corporation, and that's now going to be part of the Workplace Health and Safety Act with an independent prosecutor to ensure that the independence is maintained in cohort with the director of public prosecutions," she said.

    "This is a serious offence and one that will be handled very professionally in the future to come."

    She said it was too early to tell if it will be used in relation to the Dreamworld incident.

    "It's always there in relation to it, but the investigations are continuing in relation to this matter," she said.

    "There is the ability to have criminal manslaughter charges brought against an individual in relation to these issues at anytime as we've seen with the tragedy at Eagle Farm."

    Dreamworld: Queensland Government considering legal action after Thunder Rapids deaths

    By Isobel Roe
    Updated about 6 hours ago

    The Queensland Government is considering legal action against Gold Coast theme park Dreamworld following last year's fatal ride malfunction, which led to the deaths of four people.

    Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace said a Workplace Health and Safety report into the tragedy had finished, but would not be publicly released.

    "The report has now been handed over to the WHSQ prosecutions unit to determine the legal consequences of the investigation and the next course of action," Ms Grace said.

    "That process is expected to take several months.
