Ice Age's Sid and Scrat will be at the Zoo

Ice Age characters Sid and Scrat are coming to the Houston Zoo on Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, February 23. They’ve been through an ice age, a meltdown, dinosaurs and drifting continents. 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.

While you’re at the Houston Zoo, don’t miss Sid and Scrat in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience. This entertaining and exciting 4-D Experience presentation ends its run at the Houston Zoo on February 28. Purchase your 4-D Experience tickets when you arrive at the Zoo, or at the 4-D Experience ticket booth located at the theater.
