On 10 June 2009, a helicopter operating joy flights on behalf of Dreamworld crash landed in the carpark near the park's main entry. On board was the pilot and four Taiwanese visitors to the park, all whom suffered minor injuries in the crash. The helicopter was destroyed by the impact. The pilot was initially praised for avoiding crowded areas of the park,[1] but it was later revealed the crash was a result of mismanagement which led to the helicopter running out of fuel.[2] Dreamworld has not offered helicopter flights since the accident.
