What to Know
The lawsuit claimed the theme park chain automatically charged for the renewal of the annual EZpay pass after its expiration date.
Those eligible include customers from Florida who bought passes between December 3, 2008 and December 3, 2014.
SeaWorld annual pass holders, listen up: you may be eligible for a one-time rebate following the proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit.
The lawsuit - which claimed the theme park chain, with locations in four states including Florida, automatically charged for the renewal of the annual EZpay pass after its expiration date – would allow for over 100,000 pass holders to get part of an $11.5 million settlement, according to NBC affiliate WESH-TV.
The EZpay program allows for customers to make monthly payments instead of one lump sum to purchase a pass.
Those eligible include customers from Florida who bought passes between December 3, 2008 and December 3, 2014. Anyone who used a pass after the first year they signed up is not eligible.
Other requirements for eligibility include the following:
- All who purchased a one-year pass in the program to one of SeaWorld’s theme parks located in the states of Florida, Texas, Virginia, or California.
- Those who were residents of the state where the park is located at the time of purchase.
- Those who paid for their one-year pass in less than 12 months.
- Those who were charged any additional monthly payments for renewal of the pass after the one-year pass was paid in full.
SeaWorld representatives did not admit wrong doing in the case, but reportedly agreed to pay in an effort to avoid a trial.
