Lawyers for Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark have agreed to settle a class action lawsuit over a 2008 viral outbreak at the park for $1.3 million. The settlement was outlined Tuesday during a hearing before state Supreme Court Justice David Krogmann involving lawyers for plaintiffs and Six Flags. Krogmann has given preliminary approval to the settlement, pending notice to the 650 or so people who came forward to the state Department of Health after they suffered bouts of vomiting and diarrhea following visits to the hotel and water park in March 2008.
