Dreamworld is no 'ghost town' as crowds return

OUR local readers are in strong disagreement with our recent Dreamworld story calling it a 'ghost town'.

Read the original story here.

Our Newscorp fellow journalists had reported that prices were slashed and hours extended, but still the crowds didn't come.

That simply wasn't the case, according to many people who went to the theme park.

"We were there yesterday and it was still almost half an hour wait for white water world rides and Dreamworld was almost the same for the rides that were open, Sasha Dwight posted on The Northern Star Facebook page.

"The car park was 3/4 full."

Leanda Handford speculated the article was written on a rainy day.

"It's not a ghost town. This (article) was ...when the rain was coming," she said.

"I have driven past twice in the last four days and (it) has been packed," Patrick Kevin Smith wrote.

Kim Overton agreed.

"We drove past twice this holiday period on way to brisbane. Carpark was FULL," she posted.

Others were also far from convinced:

My Aunty was there the other day and it was packed, every time they drive past - packed. Of corse no one will be there with the rain and stuff. And yes I'll still be supporting them, I've got my yearly passes.. it was a horrible accident.. Are people wanting roads to be closed permanently after horrible car accidents.

Janine Cawthray 
With all due respect to the deceased, If I could...yes. Consider the employees, suppliers and local industries which rely on this attraction. Safety standards have obviously been reviewed and enhanced for us all.

Warren Bates
When I drove past on Friday it was packed just like the other nearby attractions.

How come you don't show the rest of the theme parks? There all like this atm
