Expensive family trip: Mother spends over 1,100 euros at the amusement park

A family of four was asked to pay properly in the USA. She spent over $1,100 on a trip to the amusement park.

Orlando – A trip at the weekend is part of everyday life for many families. Amusement parks are among the most popular destinations. The operators often promise fun for young and old and an experience for the whole family. A family of four probably thought so too and made their way to the Universal Studios amusement park in Orlando (USA). But in the end, the parents had to shell out a whopping sum of $1,113.40.

Influencer Miranda Pearce shared a clip detailing all of the costs. The post has already garnered over 1.7 million clicks on TikTok.

But by far the most expensive items are the tickets. The couple with their two sons had to pay $483.66. In addition, there were almost 400 dollars for the so-called “Fast Passes”. With the help of these, the family was able to skip the annoying queues in front of the attractions and got their turn faster. At the end there is the horrendous sum of $1,113.40. “And that doesn’t even include the tip,” writes Pearce.

“Look at me, I’m rich” clip? TikTok users offer savings tips after $1,100 trip

Of course, the comments under the TikTok clip were not long in coming. From understanding to criticism, but also savings tips were among them. “I’m still not sure if that’s a ‘look at me I’m rich’ clip or if she’s really surprised,” notes one user cynically.

“Save the ‘Fast Passes’, eat before and go to dinner after you leave,” recommends another user. For some people, even with the best money-saving tips, a visit to Universal Studios is unaffordable: “Thank you for making it clear where we are not going.”
