New figures reveal that foot traffic to the embattled theme park is down 30.5 per cent in comparison to June 2016.
The news follows Ardent Leisure – the parent company of the Gold Coast amusement park – previously announcing it was expecting a loss of up to $4 million for the financial year.
But despite these poor figures, acting chief executive Paul Callander says he remains confident Dreamworld will thrive again.
“Month by month we are welcoming more visitors back to Dreamworld,” he said.
“This school holiday period has been encouraging.”
Callendar also claims the timing of the school holidays could also partly be to blame for the tourist attraction's recent decline in numbers, with Victoria moving the midyear break from late June to July.
