Ticket price inflation at U.S. attractions is real. Over the past four years, admission prices for some museums and amusement parks have seen some serious price increases. DealA, a coupon, discounts, and promo code website founded in 2020, discovered which attractions have had the highest ticket price inflation since 2017. They’ve shared that research and some colorful infographics with The Travel Vertical.

At the Florida resorts, the single day price is still hefty, starting at a minimum of $109. However, that base price has held since the introduction of the date-based pricing in October 2018.
DealA writes, “Using lists from Big Roads and Joy of Museums, we compiled a list of 40 museums and 20 amusement parks across the US. With the Wayback Machine, the web page from 2017 for each attraction was accessed, and the admission price at the time for a single adult general admission ticket was sourced. This was compared to the price for a single adult general admission ticket as of 12/23/2021. Where the price of a ticket differed for online sales and in-person purchases, the online price was used. In cases where an automatically applied promotion affected ticket prices, the value of a full-priced ticket was used. Where the price of a ticket differed by day, the starting price of a general admission ticket was used.”
