Dreamworld Ride Tragedy Inquest To Start Next Month

The families of the Dreamworld Tragedy victims might finally get some answers, with an inquest into the fatal ride malfunction at the Gold Coast theme park starting next month.

It has been set down to start in the Coroner's Court in Brisbane on April 3, a little more than 17 months after four people (Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett, Roozi Araghi and Cindy Low) lost their lives when a raft flipped on the ride, in October 2016.

The inquest will examine the maintenance, safety measures and staff training surrounding the Thunder River Rapids ride, among other factors that may have contributed to the tragedy.

According to News Corp, at the first hearing, the coroner will hear from lawyers regarding witnesses and how long the proceedings are expected to take.
