The Giant Drop will continue to operate as normal, with the Tower of Terror II track being removed from the iconic Dreamworld Tower structure over time.

...but why? This was the parks marquee ride. I get that the park hasn't had the best few years, but this doesn't make any sense to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's due the high maintenance costs. I'm glad I managed to ride this iconic ride.
