Ticket Prices Rise at Two Florida Theme Parks

View Comments (


    The cost of visiting two Florida theme parks is going up, just in time for summer.
    Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando on Monday increased the cost of a single-day, general admission ticket purchased at the gates to $95 for adults, up $3. Admission for children is $90. Discounted tickets are available online.

    Multipark tickets, which include the Aquatica water park, went up $6. SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Fun Cards also increased $3.
    The move comes three months after Disney upped the cost of a single-day ticket to Magic Kingdom to $99. This month, Disney also increased single-day tickets to West Coast attractions Disneyland and California Adventure Park.
    The increase went into effect as Busch Gardens prepares to open the Falcon's Fury, a 335-foot drop tower ride. The ride was scheduled to debut earlier this month but has been delayed because of testing.
