Are theme parks too expensive?

Winter Haven, Fla. - Legoland Florida is set to open up on Saturday in Winter Haven. While there is excitement about the new theme park, some 10 News viewers have also expressed hesitation about the price. So how does it compare to other theme parks in the Orlando and Tampa areas?

Starting Saturday, a one day admission ticket to Legoland Florida will run you $70 for adults and $60 for children.

For Disney's Magic Kingdom, you're looking at $81 for adults and $76 for children.

Seaworld will cost you $82 for adults and $74 for children.

Busch Gardens runs $80 for adults and $72 for children.

One Bay Area mother said she has to plan ahead sometimes when going to theme parks.

"We try to sneak drinks in my big purse. It's cheaper that way. It's very expensive, the kids get thirsty. It's like $5 for a drink. It's ridiculous," said mother of four, Rachel Cross.

You can save money in some cases by buying your admission tickets online.

For instance, there is a $5 discount on Disney's website and Sea World offers half price for children. Some of the prices mentioned are discounted for Florida residents, so make sure to take advantage of that.
