Consumer Lawsuit: Deceptive Practices at Splish Splash

Splish Splash, Cash Grab: How Festival Fun Parks LLC is Deceiving Consumers

Summer is here, and for many of us, that means it's time to start planning fun activities for the family. But beware, dear consumers, for there are companies out there that are more than happy to take advantage of your desire for a good time. Festival Fun Parks LLC, the company behind the popular Splish Splash amusement park, is one such example. In a recent class action complaint, the company was accused of violating the New York Arts and Cultural Affairs Law § 25.07(4) by charging additional "processing fees" without clearly displaying the total cost of the tickets upfront.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at the allegations made against Festival Fun Parks LLC and what they mean for consumers. We'll also explore the damages claimed and the relief requested by the plaintiff, Adreana Rodriguez, and what it could mean for you if you've been affected by the company's practices.

Alleged Violation

At the heart of the lawsuit against Festival Fun Parks LLC is the allegation that the company has failed to comply with NY Arts and Cultural Affairs Law § 25.07(4). This law requires that ticket sellers clearly display the total cost of the ticket, including any additional fees, before the purchase is made. According to the complaint, Festival Fun Parks LLC has been charging additional "processing fees" without clearly disclosing them upfront.

This is not only a violation of the law, but it's also a deceitful practice that can cost consumers a significant amount of money. Imagine planning a day at the amusement park, only to find out that the ticket price you saw advertised is not the actual price you'll pay. It's a sneaky way to make a profit, and it's not right.

Damages Claimed

The plaintiff, Adreana Rodriguez, is seeking damages for herself and on behalf of all other ticket purchasers who have been affected by Festival Fun Parks LLC's practices. The damages claimed include statutory damages, attorney's fees, and injunctive relief.

Statutory damages are designed to punish the company for its violation of the law and to deter similar practices in the future. Attorney's fees are necessary to compensate the plaintiff for the legal costs associated with bringing the lawsuit. Injunctive relief, on the other hand, is intended to stop the company from continuing to engage in the alleged deceitful practices.

Relief Requested

The relief requested by the plaintiff is twofold. Firstly, she is seeking relief individually and on behalf of all other ticket purchasers for Festival Fun Parks LLC's place of entertainment, Splish Splash. This includes actual and/or statutory damages, reasonable attorneys' costs and fees, and injunctive relief under New York Arts and Cultural Affairs Law § 25.33.
