They’ve seen it all. Now your favorite Ice Age characters Sid and Scrat are coming to meet you at the Houston Zoo!
Bring your camera to capture all the fun when Sid the ground sloth with a heart of gold and Scrat the prehistoric squirrel visit the Houston Zoo, greeting their fans and posing for photos near the 4-D Experience in the African Forest – all for free with regular Zoo admission or membership.
Parents take note – Sid and Scrat’s appearances will begin on the hour every hour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for 30 minutes at a time. The last appearance will be at 2 p.m. each day.
