That's fairly unprecedented.

I heard on the radio this afternoon that it will be closed for at least a few weeks pending investigation by police, forensics etc. I feel so sad for the families
I've been to Dreamworld a few times, in 1990 and 1995. I remember riding that ride. While I totally get everyone's fear, and truth be told, my anxiety would mean I'm not sure I'd ever take my kids there. But to be fair to DreamWorld, then have been open since the 80's and had literally millions of safe riding experiences. You would have much more chance of being hurt in a car crash.
Just on the driving analogy I get that and I am not an anxious person at all. But driving is a normal incident of every day life. Theme park rides aren't. It's the whole mixing doing such a happy thing with a tragedy that I'm finding hard. This was probably an amazing day for them which has turned ridiculously tragic. These types of events always shock me.
I too am shocked to the core by this awful event. I grew up in Brisbane and now live on the Gold Coast so have had many, many wonderful times at Dreamworld. I remember going on that ride the year it opened.
I don't think Dreamworld will close. I will personally go there again. It's horrific and just so shocking, but I hope the park will again be the sought after travel destination it has been for so long eventually.
I can't even imagine what the families are going through. I drove past there twice today and just felt sick 😞.
I just can't stop thinking about this. It's so very sad and just unbelievable. I can't stop thinking about the Mum who has now lost her son and daughter in one horrible moment. And the poor little boy who saw what happened to his mum The photos of all of them in the news coverage enjoying their lives pre tragedy is what gets me the most - they will never get to do that again because of a cruel twist of fate. I start crying every time I think about it.
And speaking of news coverage pretty *****ed off with the Daily Tele which had photos of the white sheets on the front page of the paper including probable bloodstains. So unnecessary, imagine being a family or friend of one of the poor people looking at the paper and being confronted with that awful image.
My major issues is people attacking the QAS spokesperson because he was being crude or uncaring.
"injuries incompatible with life" is a widely used medical term. The injuries that this term describes are horrific and there is no nice way to describe them.
This poor ambo had probably seen one of the most horrific things he's ever seen and to attack him for using appropriate language as per QAS policy is disgusting.
