Basic general admission prices for Great America are $54 for adults ages 3 through 61 who are 48 inches or taller and $36 for children shorter than 48 inches or for senior citizens ages 62 and older. Children age 2 and younger are admitted free.

If prospective guests can print their own tickets at home prior to visiting the park, they can enjoy substantial savings on the general admission prices. Pay once, visit twice tickets can be bought online for discounts, but the tickets can be used for any two days in the operating season.

There are no service fees or hidden charges for printing tickets at home, but prospective guests should be sure their printer is able to provide a high quality copy and the printed ticket should not be folded or otherwise mangled or it may not be accepted at the gate because of poor condition.
