Australia, Oct 25 – At least three people have been killed on a ride at the Dreamworld theme park on Australia’s Gold Coast, the park has confirmed.
Queensland police said they were attending a “critical incident” at the park.
The incident is believed to have happened on the Thunder River Rapids ride.
Dreamworld bills itself as Australia’s biggest theme park with more than 50 rides and attractions.
The theme park issued a statement confirming the three deaths.
“Dreamworld is working as quickly as possible to establish the facts around the incident and is working closely with emergency authorities and police to do this,” the statement said.
The Thunder River Rapids ride was opened in 1986.
The theme park’s website says it allowed riders to travel at up to “45km/h through the turbulent rapids”.
