Universal ticket prices up
Universal Orlando joined its theme park rivals and raised entrance prices Friday, but the resort is encouraging Internet admission-ticket purchases by offering a discount.
Starting today, visitors who purchase tickets at the gates to Universal Orlando and Islands of Adventure will pay, pretax, $63 per adult and $52 per child for a one-park, one-day ticket, up from $59.75 for an adult and $48 for a child.
However, visitors who purchase the ticket online will get to pay the old price and can use the ticket to get into the park for five consecutive days.
Late last month, Walt Disney World and SeaWorld Orlando raised prices. Disney raised the price of a one-day, one-park adult ticket to $63 plus tax. SeaWorld's price jumped to $61.95.
