San Diego Zoo 1-Day Pass
Now with the one day pass, a tourist can take their time and take in as much as they like. Some of the biggest attractions include a 4D theater, a Skyfari aerial tram, a nice guided bus tour of the zoo, and a Balboa Park miniature railroad. Now those are ways that people can look at the animals from different ways.
Besides those attractions, the kids will love to see the baby panda. There is also a very nice exhibit that will focus on elephants and saber tooth tigers, where the family can step back into time and do some fossil digging. After that they can look at some elephants, lions and a jaguar.
Zoo's have always been a popular family activity and the San Diego Zoo is one of the best ones to visit. Parents can get a nice all day pass and let the kids have a full day of enjoying the zoo and making a day of it.
