Breaking: 4 killed on Thunder River Rapids at Dreamworld - DragonTamer - 10-25-2016

Some media reporting three fatalities, others reporting four.  Sounds like it involved the conveyor belt.  How sad... Cry

Edit: Dang, that's an Intamin, too... thought that lift hill looked familiar. Some reports are that a raft flipped going up the lift hill & trapped some riders underneath the water.

Yeah, originally the info I found said it was, but I've heard it was apparently not theirs. Guess that fooled a lot of folks.
