3 Pa. amusement parks settling suit with tickets



The Associated Press

— People who used a credit card to buy tickets to three Pittsburgh-area amusement parks may be eligible for free tickets under a class-action lawsuit settlement.

The settlement was prompted by a federal lawsuit filed in August against Palace Entertainment Holdings LLC by a man who says his credit card receipt at Idlewild Soak Zone park near Ligonier contained his credit card’s expiration date. That violates federal laws meant to protect credit card customer from identity thefts.

Palace Entertainment, which also owns Kennywood, an amusement park, and Sandcastle, a water park, both just east of Pittsburgh, is offering free tickets to anyone who had improper credit card information on their receipt at any of the company’s 15 parks nationwide.

The settlement affects only people who paid by credit cards after Dec. 4, 2006.
