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.
SeaWorld also launched a new advanced ticket discount. The price of an advance-purchase "Any Day" ticket will be $80, a $15 discount from the gate price. An advance-purchase "Weekday Ticket," which can be used only between Monday and Friday, will cost $65, a $30 discount.
The tickets can be used up to a year after they are purchased.
SeaWorld hopes to secure more visits by encouraging people to buy tickets in advance.
Three months ago, Disney upped the cost of a single-day ticket to Magic Kingdom to $99.
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.
