Taking a family vacation to an amusement park never gets cheaper. Recently, Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom in Florida announced an increase to the price of a one-day visit to $89. The announcement followed Universal Orlando’s decision to increase the price of admission to $88.

Although it’s difficult to compete with the biggest parks in the world, amusement parks in the Midwest have found a way to compete by charging less.

In Omaha, a one-day pass to Fun-Plex will cost you $24.95 to enjoy the rides and water park.

In Kansas City, a one-day pass to Worlds of Fun will cost you $44.99 at the gate. You can save $10 by purchasing your ticket online.

In Des Moines, a one-day pass to Adventureland will cost visitors 10 years and older $39.

In St. Louis, a one day pass to Six Flags will cost you $49.99 at the gate or $36.99 for a ticket purchased three days in advance online.

Two of those amusement parks in the Midwest offer season tickets that are less than a single-day ticket at Walt Disney World. A season pass at Fun-Plex starts at $79.95. At Worlds of Fun, it starts at $84.99. It’s $69.99 at Six Flags St. Louis. Adventureland’s season pass goes for $120.
