SeaWorld Orlando has raised its single-day ticket prices for the second time in a year, with the cost of children's tickets rising by an above-inflation 5.5%.
The park has pushed adult prices up to $87.32 (including tax), an increase of 2.5% or $2.13. Meanwhile, the cost of bringing kids aged 3-9 to the park has been raised significantly, from $72.75 to $78.80. The cost of parking at SeaWorld Orlando has also been increased, to $14 per day.
SeaWorld Orlando previously raised prices by $1 per ticket in November 2010. In June 2011, it also withdrew the Fun Card promotion, which allowed Florida and Georgia residents to save money on repeat visits.
Tickets for the park, owned by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, continue to be priced slightly lower than tickets for Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando parks. Both resorts charge $90.52 (including tax) for a basic single-day, adult ticket.
