JERSEY MOMMA TIPS

*Rizzo's is a small place, so don't expect to spend all day here. Plan for an hour, maybe, unless you are attending a party.
*Nature enthusiasts will really enjoy Rizzo's. It's great for preschool age and up.
*It's clean and stroller-friendly!
*Call ahead for visitation times. Rizzo's is not a zoo and is small in size, so their hours and availability might vary. They offer public visitation days and show times, so check all of this before you decide to make a trip.
*Rizzo's does not have any place to eat if you are visiting for a regular show or during public admission hours (birthday parties are an exception). But there are plenty of local places to eat if you're hungry! The International Trade Zone is a few miles down the road and offers plenty of shopping and dining choices. It also houses an awesome Sky Zone, if you wanted to make a total day of your trip!
*Visit Rizzo's Wildlife World on their website or check them out on Facebook
