Dreamworld ride controls were 'confusing'

Dreamworld ride controls were 'confusing'

Goodchild's 12-year-old daughter and Ms Low 10-year-old son were on the raft that flipped at the end of the ride, but survived.

He dismissed a suggestion the accident had been an unforeseeable chain of events despite police being unable to recreate the exact scenario in more than 20 tests of the ride.

The inquest heard there was no drill training for staff at Dreamworld to determine how they would react in an emergency situation.

A Dreamworld ride that caused the deaths of four guests had broken down twice on the day of the tragedy, an inquest has heard.

When the raft containing victims as well as two children collided with another raft, it flipped over and dropped the guests into the conveyor system.

Det Sgt Brown said further incidents in 2004 and 2005 involving raft collisions prompted recommendations including the installation of CCTV of the unloading area for ride operators to monitor.

A DREAMWORLD ride operator was unsure which emergency button to press to prevent the Thunder River Rapids ride tragedy, an inquest has heard.

"There's no evidence any engineering staff attended the second incident", Det Sgt Brown said.

He told the coroners court issues "gravely emotional" to the families of those killed would be explored at the inquest.

Rising trend of casino apps
For those who are looking for a specific game, Cherry Rush also includes a description of what games can be found each site. It used to be that if someone wanted to play a casino game they had to find a land based venue.

Fleming said one incident, in January 2001, had resulted in several empty rafts colliding at the unloading point of the ride.

Det Sgt Brown also said one of the ride's main operators was told there was an emergency stop button which would cease its operation in two seconds, but that it was unmarked - and that staff were advised "not to worry about" it as it was rarely needed.

"We're talking about human beings.it was a human being that has to stop it", she said.

Mr Fleming told the inquest the Dreamworld tragedy "has been felt Australia-wide".

Among the relatives of the victims in the gallery are Ms Low's husband Matthew and Ms Goodchild's husband Dave Turner.

The four ride passengers were killed instantly from compressive and crushing injuries when they were caught in a malfunctioning mechanism on what was billed as a tame family friendly attraction.

Detective Sergeant Brown said an emergency stop button at the unload area was created to halt the conveyor within two seconds.

Up to 37 witnesses are expected to testify at the two-week inquest, which will investigate the ride's history, staff procedures and whether the accident could have been avoided.
