Following the horrific accident at the Gold Coast theme park, Dreamworld have announced the Thunder Rapids ride will close forever.
Ardent Leisure chief executive officer and managing director, Deborah Thomas, made the announcement in a statement, saying the ride would be permanently closed out of respect for the victims and their families.
'The closure of the ride is the only respectful and appropriate course of action,' she said.
Deborah also added that the families of victims Cindy Low, Kate Goodchild, her brother Luke Dorsett and his partner Roozbeh Araghi would be invited to help create a memorial to their loved ones.
The statement also outlined that Dreamworld and the manufacturers of the ride are currently undergoing a review by an independent expert engineering firm.
'Pitt and Sherry are one of Australia's leading experts in mechanical engineering with extensive experience in providing engineering and technical services for amusement rides and devices,' Deborah said in the statement.
'Pitt and Sherry's review will be further peer reviewed by an industry leading global theme park safety specialist.
'Dreamworld is also well progressed on an internal review of every ride in the Park, which includes reviewing all operating policies and procedures.
'In addition to these reviews, Dreamworld remains committed to working closely with the Workplace Health and Safety Queensland team.
'No ride at Dreamworld will operate until the Workplace Health and Safety Audit has been completed and unless it passes the multi-level internal and external review process.'
Dreamworld is yet to announce when the park will reopen.
