As we all know, businesses across the world have been closed due to Covid-19. This includes theme parks like Six Flags Theme Parks. Six Flags, however, has continued charging thousands of customers who pay monthly fees at full price despite being closed.
Shahriyar Rezai-Hariri has sued the Southern California based theme park in a class-action lawsuit claiming Six Flags “made the baffling decision to keep charging all of its customers monthly membership fees while prohibiting access to Six Flags Magic Mountain” as the coronavirus spread across the world.
In this lawsuit, Rezai-Hariri alleges the park closed on March 13 but “unlike its competitors in the industry, [Six Flags] continued charging its thousands of customers monthly fees — at full price.” He also claims Six Flags is able to keep charging customers “without their consent” because it has their credit and debit cards on file from when they initially bought the passes.
Rezai-Hariri claims that it is unfair for Six Flags to collect from its customers while its parks are closed and is suing on behalf of all customers dealing with the continued monthly charges
