TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The cost of visiting two Florida theme parks is going up, just in time for summer.

Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando on Monday increased the cost of a single-day, general admission ticket purchased at the gates to $95 for adults, up $3. Admission for children is $90. Discounted tickets are available online.

Multipark tickets, which include the Aquatica water park, went up $6. SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Fun Cards also increased $3.

The move comes three months after Disney upped the cost of a single-day ticket to Magic Kingdom to $99.

The increase went into effect as Busch Gardens prepares to open the Falcon's Fury, a 335-foot drop tower ride. The ride was scheduled to debut earlier this month but has been delayed because of testing.
