  • Upgraded single day tickets include the front-of-line pass at $140 and the summertime front-of-line pass at $150, or about $580 for a family of four. The front-of-line pass allows priority entrance to each ride and attraction, reserved seating and selected behind-the-scenes access. The pass, including a VIP guided tour, costs $250 per person.
