Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando Raise Prices - Offer Online Discounts


Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando both announced price increases for single day tickets this week. Both parks are now $95 for adults for a single day/single park ticket, children 3 and under at SeaWorld Orlando are now $90. While it's not a huge increase, it definitely shows that once again every park follows along eventually after Disney raises their rates.

However, there is some good news to this as both parks are offering some pretty deep discounts and a new ticket option for those buying in advance through their websites. SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa are both offering up to $30 off the ticket price if you buy a weekday ticket and $15 off an "any day" ticket for the duration of the summer. So, that drops the prices down to $80 for the "any day" option and only $65 for the "weekday" side of things.

So, while we all hate to see prices rise, at least there's a bit of a silver lining here for those with enough sense to pre-purchase their tickets. Of course, the $95 "Fun Card" is still one of the best options out there as it gets you into the parks for the rest of the year for the price of one day, but if you can only go for one day, buy in advance!
