A cheap few hours out at $2 each and under 2's free! A nice little petting zoo full of goats and a section to feed some animals. Also a great selection of lions, bears and other animals.

I've been to some pretty serious zoos in my life (National Zoo in D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, San Diego, and others), but this one was an absolute delight!! The zoo is totally kid friendly and includes a petting area where visitors can even feed the goats!...More

Hi, Admission is just $2.00 each for everyone over three years old. I'm not sure about the Honda Center - the zoo is located in Irvine Regional Park.
