Universal Orlando hikes admission price

ORLANDO -- Universal Orlando's two theme parks on March 1 matched SeaWorld Adventure Park's $2 admission hike (which was effective Jan. 23).

Thus, the adult entry (ages 10 and older) for either Universal's Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios Florida now costs $49.95 plus tax of $3. The children's admission (ages 3 to 9) is 40.95 plus tax of $2.46.

Unaffected are the costs of Universal's four- and five-park Orlando Flexticket (one to 14 days) covering the Universal parks, SeaWorld, Wet 'n Wild and (with the five-park), Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Currently, admission to Walt Disney World's four major parks was unchanged.
