    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.
