CIRCUIT COURT OF COOK COUNTY, ILLINOIS, CHANCERY DIVISION

IF YOU WERE CHARGED FOR A SIX FLAGS MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP WHEN YOUR SIX FLAGS HOME PARK IN THE UNITED STATES WAS CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 BUT NORMALLY WOULD HAVE BEEN OPEN, YOU COULD RECEIVE ONE OR MORE MONTHS OF FREE MEMBERSHIP, A GUEST PASS, MEMBERSHIP POINTS, A GIFT CARD FOR USE AT THE PARK,  AND/OR OTHER BENEFITS FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT

A court authorized this website.  This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

  • This website informs you of a proposed Settlement in a class action lawsuit alleging that Defendants Six Flags Theme Parks Inc., Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, Great America LLC, d/b/a Six Flags Great America and their affiliates (“Defendants” or “Six Flags”) wrongfully continued to charge or did not refund their customers’ membership fees while their parks in the United States that normally would have been open were closed due to COVID-19.

  • The Settlement will provide the following benefits:       

                        o Class members with active or paused memberships can receive one free month of                                 membership for each month they were charged during the Class Period, or a gift card in                                 the amount of the monthly membership charges that can be used at any park in the United                                 States (at locations where Six Flags gift cars are accepted);

                        o Class members with active and paused memberships can receive upgraded membership                                 status

                        o Class members with active or paused memberships (once they unpause) can receive                                 either 1 Golden Ticket or 5,000 Membership Rewards points; and

                        o Class members who cancelled their memberships can receive a complimentary admission                                 ticket for each six months they were charged during the Class Period.

  • To qualify, excluding Six Flags Employee's, you must have been a Six Flags monthly membership account holder in the United States who was charged a monthly fee for a monthly membership during the period of time when your Six Flags Home Park in the United States was closed due to the pandemic but was otherwise scheduled to be open during the period from March 13, 2020 through September 10, 2021, and did not receive a refund for the full amount of those charges.

  • Defendants deny any wrongdoing or unlawful conduct.  The Court has not decided who is right.  Both sides have agreed to settle the dispute and give benefits to Class Members. 

SUMMARY OF YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM BY NOVEMBER 24, 2021
If you qualify to receive a Golden Ticket or 5,000 Membership Rewards points, you must submit a claim to receive them.  You can also submit a claim to opt to receive a gift card that can be used at Six Flags parks in the United States (at locations where Six Flags gift cards are accepted) as an alternative to receiving free months of membership, if you qualify.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF BY NOVEMBER 24, 2021
Exclude yourself by November 24, 2021 and get no benefit from the proposed Settlement.  This is the only choice that allows you to participate in another lawsuit against Defendants about the claims at issue in this case for the claims covered by the Class Period.    
OBJECT BY NOVEMBER 24, 2021
You can write to the Court by November 24, 2021 about why you don’t like the Settlement.  
GO TO A HEARING

DO NOTHING
Give up your rights to sue Defendants regarding any of the claims at issue in this case.  You may still qualify for other benefits under the proposed Settlement, such as free months of membership if your account has remained active, even if you do nothing and the Settlement is approved.
  • The Court in charge of this case still must decide whether to approve the proposed Settlement. Benefits will be applied and distributed if the Court approves the Settlement and after appeals are resolved.  

  • Please be patient. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or not. Read this website carefully because it explains decisions you must make and actions you must take now.
