Orlando, FL -- SeaWorld Orlando announced that it has increased its admission price to more than $50, the first of the major Orlando theme parks to break the barrier. For years Disney has lead the market with increases at their Orlando theme parks, but this year SeaWorld took the lead.
The increase brings the single-day admission price to $50.83, up from $47.95. The last admission price increase was in January 2000 when park officials tacked on an extra $2 to the price of admission.
