The CEO of Ardent Leisure Group, the company that owns the theme park, has been widely criticised since the Thunder River Rapids malfunctioned last Tuesday killing Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett, Roozbeh Araghi, and Cindy Low.
The criticism has been aimed not only at her performance over the past week, but at her immense personal wealth.
Thomas, who has pledged to donate her yearly bonus of $167,500 to the Australian Red Cross charity, has also revealed she was forced to contact the NSW Police after she and her family were repeatedly threatened online.

Giving a brief interview to the Australian Financial Review, the former Women’s Weekly editor admitted she was feeling "not great", especially after photographs of her apartment building in the Sydney suburb of Point Piper and of her 14-year-old son's private school were published.
"We've been getting some pretty nasty threats directed at myself and my family," she said. "We've had some concerns for the safety of our family."
Thomas and her son actually went on the popular ride in July then the family visited Dreamworld while holidaying on the Gold Coast.
Fronting the media during Ardent Leisure's annual general meeting in Sydney last week, she fought back tears after being further lambasted for not immediately reaching out to the victims' families.

When a Channel 10 reporter challenged her on the topic, Thomas was forced to address Luke Dorsett's family directly on live television.
