Dreamworld will reopen on December 10, in time for the school holidays.
The Gold Coast theme park has been closed for six weeks, since October 25, when four people died on the Thunder River Rapids Ride.
Parent company Ardent Leisure confirmed the reopening date in an announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange on Wednesday morning.
All of WhiteWater World’s attractions would be open, with only a handful in Dreamworld itself approved to open.
“Dreamworld’s other rides will progressively open as they are signed off as part of the safety review process,” company secretary Alan Shredden said.
The park has undergone a series of safety checks since Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett, Roozi Araghi and Cindy Low died when the Thunder River Rapids malfunctioned.
Ardent has announced that the Thunder River Rapids Ride will be demolished.
The opening weekend has been dubbed an “Open Hearts – Open Doors Charity Weekend”, with $25 from every entry fee donated to the Red Cross.
