enumerate decimals

I'm wondering if I'm understanding this correctly.

If I've got a movie admission class with the following enum

Public Enum AgeGroup
  Toddler = 0.00
  Student = 1.50
  Military = 1.00
  Adult = 3.00
  Senior = 1.00
End Enum

I get an error since option stict is on.  Other than turning it off, how would I set this up?
The error is ...implicit conversions from double to integer are disallowed...

Enums can't hold decimals...

    "An Enum is a named constant whose underlying type is any integral type except Char."

If you really want to use an Enum then I guess you could store the values like 150, 100, or 300 and then divide them by 100 to get the actual value.
