"I wonder what we paid back in 1960?"

When the park opened in 1955, an adult ticket was $1, and 50 cents for a child ticket. Then, each of the 35 rides had a separate fee. These cost 25 to 35 cents for adults and 10 to 25 cents for a child. So, if you did everything back then, it was $8.70 for an adult, and $5.15 for a child.
Bringing out the handy inflation calculator, that adult ticket would go for $80.96 in 2017's money.
Of course, the park is not the same today as it was then. Currently there are over 60 attractions. So, in 1955 money, that would have been $16 for an adult to do everything, or $148.89 in 2017 money.
Wow...I think I was just actually hit with what replaced my comic obsession.
