Thunder River Rapids Overview

The design and construction of this ride is thought to be a combination of internal Dreamworld and externally contracted engineering efforts. At varying times the ride has utilised inflatable tubes for the rafts from Intamin, leading some to incorrectly assume it was an Intamin designed ride.

A fatal incident on October 25, 2016 caused the closure of the attraction.
