Dreamworld is set for a $60million facelift that will include a daring rollercoaster in a brand new ‘Indiana Jones’ style section of the park called ‘Rivertown’.

The Jungle Rush ride, built by Dutch roller coaster specialist Vekoma, will feature a ‘world-first inclined turntable’, which can be used to rotate the individual cars in the ride.

At $35 million, Jungle Rush will be the most the Gold Coast fun park has spent on a ride and has been compared to Disney’s much-praised Indiana Jones adventure.

In July this year it was announced Dreamworld will likely cover the private school fees of two children after they lost their biological dad, Roozbeh Araghi, when he was killed in the accident.

Luke Dorsett, Kate Goodchild and Cindy Low also died on the scene.
