The next time you visit Sea World in Orlando or Busch Gardens in Tampa, get ready to shell out more for a single-day admission.

According to Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV, Sea World Parks and Entertainment, the company that owns Sea World and Busch Gardens, announce on May 20th that it was going to raise the price of a single-day, general admission prices at its Florida theme parks.

Admissions to both Sea World Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay will go up to $95 at the gate for adults, which is a $3 raise from the current single-day admission price of $92. Children's admission prices will also go up to $90 at the gate.

The company has said that it will continue to sell discounted tickets online.

Although single-day admission prices are going up, Sea World and Busch Gardens gate prices will still be lower than Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, which both charge nearly $100 for a single-day admission into the parks.

Sea World Parks and Entertainment is keeping in line with other theme parks in Central Florida by encouraging more guest to invest in multi-day passes to visit the parks. The company also announced that the Fun Cards, Sea World's multi-day passes, will also increase by $3.

The increase went into effect as Busch Gardens Tampa Bay prepares to open Falcon's Fury, the world's tallest drop tower ride at 334-foot.
