California’s theme parks, ranked from cheapest to most expensive

Quickly, what’s the most expensive theme park to visit in California?

If you think the Happiest Place on Earth is also the costliest, you’re in Mistakenland.

A day at Disneyland (and Disney California Adventure) is actually slightly cheaper than Universal Studios Hollywood, the most expensive theme park when you factor in tickets, parking, food and hotel.

And the cheapest of California’s nine theme parks is Knott’s Berry Farm, according to’s California Theme Park Index. A day at Knott’s averages $128.85 per person, while guests will pay $289.79 each at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Disneyland and California Adventure come in at $248.97, tying as the second-most expensive parks. 

Rather than rely on ticket prices alone — the budgetary Achilles heel of the Disney parks — HometoGo included the usual expenditures for an out-of-town visitor.
