Six Flags Sued For Charging Fees During Coronavirus

 |  April 14, 2020

Six Flags Theme Parks was hit with a proposed class action by season pass holders alleging they’re being charged monthly fees while the company’s parks are shut down due to the coronavirus, reported Bloomberg Law. 

The plaintiffs allege they are being assessed membership fees while Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif., and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, Calif., remain closed. 

The parks announced March 13, 2020, that they were closing the two parks, but continued charging thousands of customers monthly fees at full price, the complaint alleges. 

Named plaintiff, Shahriyar Rezai-Hariri, has been a member of the season pass program since 2014, paying $6.95 per month, allowing him access to the parks, which are advertised as available seven days a week, according to the complaint. 

The complaint alleges that the aggregate claims of all proposed class members exceed $5 million.
