Based on the incredibly popular Ice Age movie franchise, the all-new story and live ice show will bring an avalanche of adventure to audiences everywhere in North America. Ice Age on Ice features the coolest crew on the planet including Sid, Scrat, Manny, Ellie and Diego. Our beloved pre-historic squirrel Scrat gets the wake up call of his life when he buries his prized acorn in a once-dormant volcano that rumbles back to life. With the threat of the pending eruption, our sub-zero heroes must find a way to stop a tidal wave of lava to save their home.
