SeaWorld Orlando hikes ticket prices

ORLANDO -- SeaWorld Orlando raised its 2005 ticket prices to conform to other Orlando theme parks ticket prices. A one-day pass for adults rose from $53.95 to $59.75 while one-day passes for children ages 3 to 9 rose from $44.95 to $48.

The price change, which matches price hikes announced in December by Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando, "keeps us at the level of the marketplace and matches pricing standards in the rest of Central Florida, according to a spokeswoman.

The park will offer new entertainment in 2005, she said, including a new dolphin spectacular called Blue Horizon, which is "an animal show unlike any we have done before." The park is also bringing back Mystify, a fireworks and light show.
