The Six Flags located just outside of St. Louis, Missouri has settled three personal injury lawsuits ahead of its opening for this year. According to court documents, two of the lawsuits were related to injuries sustained after the Boomerang rollercoaster stopped mid-ride in 2016. All three lawsuits were filed by the parents of teenagers. Two of the teenagers are 16 years-old and the third is a 15 year-old.
According to court documents, the Boomerang lawsuits were settled for $2,432.89 and $3,121.10, respectively. The other lawsuit was related to injuries sustained when a tree branch fell on the victim near the Old Chicago Train Station. That was settled for $10,000. Per Missouri law, any serious injury sustained on an amusement park ride must be immediately reported to the State Fire Marshall. The operator of the ride must also cease operation until the Missouri Department of Public Safety has determined that the ride is safe for public use.
