Qld theme park safety audits on track to completion

Safety audits of Queensland theme parks are on track to be completed by the end of this month.

In a statement released on Friday morning, Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace said workplace safety investigators had already completed a full audit of amusement rides at Movie World.

“The amusement ride audits at Movie World have been completed, with all 16 rides cleared,” she said.


“Our inspectors found Movie World has robust systems in place with regards to the training of operators, the maintenance of plant and all areas that formed part of the audit process.

“I want to thank Movie World management for their cooperating fully with our auditors as they carried out this important work.

Ms Grace said Dreamworld, White Water World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild, Aussie World and Australia Zoo were yet to be completed.

“The safety audits are ongoing at Dreamworld and White Water World, and inspectors have now commenced audits at Wet’n’Wild.

“From next week, safety inspectors will move on to Sea World, Aussie World and Australia Zoo for the next phase of the audits.

“We expect all theme park audits to be complete by the end of November.”

The safety audits come after Luke Dorsett, Kate Goodchild, Roozi Araghi and Cindy Low lost their lives when the Thunder River Rapids ride they were on malfunctioned at Dreamworld on October 25.
