Worlds of Fun Glitch Cost Some Thousands

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Some customers at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City are seeing unexpected and expensive charges in their bank statements.

Officials at the amusement park say a computer problem caused some customers to be charged multiple times for the same transaction last weekend.

KMBC-TV reports one customer was charged 37 times for food, for a bill over $900. Another customer said she was charged 38 times for a $38 lunch, costing more than $3,000.

Worlds of Fun officials say they were told of the problem Wednesday and are working with banks to reverse the charges. The company will pay for any overdraft fees or other expenses customers incurred because of the problem.

Anyone who fines erroneous charges is asked to call Worlds of Fun at 816-454-4545.
