The Six Flags Class Action Lawsuit; Are You Affected?
Due to making “the unconscionable decision” of continuously charging membership and season-pass holders monthly membership despite its 26 theme parks being closed because of the pandemic, Six Flags is now facing a class action lawsuit.
According to Plaintiff Ryan Strassburger of Chicago who has a Gold Plus monthly membership and has been a Six Flags member since in 2019, the company allegedly charged him full membership fees on March 13 even if the Six Flags parks were closed nationwide until July.
The class action lawsuit asserts that the plaintiff didn’t have access to any Six Flags parks. Furthermore, almost all Six Flags customers sign up for monthly memberships that range from $7.85 to $42 per month depending on the level purchased and any incentives.

More On the Six Flag Covid Lawsuit
“Plaintiff signed up for defendants’ month-to-month membership with the belief and on the basis that he would have access to defendants’ parks every day of the typical season — and especially in the summertime,” the class action lawsuit states. “Plaintiff would not have paid for the membership, or would not have paid for it on the same terms, had he known that he would not have access to any of the defendants’ parks?”
“Unlike other companies, defendants continued charging their customers full-price monthly payments fees even though every park they own was closed through at least mid-May, and the vast majority of parks remain closed to this day,” Strassburger argued.
Despite these claims, the theme park didn’t reimburse customers for payments charged to them during the closures.
Thus, the lawsuit accuses the defendants of the following:
- Violating the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act
- Violating the Illinois Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act
- Addition to a breach of express warranty
- Negligent misrepresentation
- Unjust enrichment
- Money had and received
- Breach of contract
