This zoo is FREE!!! We paid $15 for parking, $24 on food and $15 on tickets to the 4-D movie for 5. We spent a total of $54 and had a full day of fun and activities here. I’ve been to San Diego Zoo many times and have spent hundreds of dollars to do what we did for $54. The zoo itself is amazing, the animals, the gardens, habitats and the entire atmosphere was very impressive. My grandchildren loved it and I can’t wait to visit again!
