We showed up close to closing time and for a brief period we had the place entirely to ourselves. The bartender was amazing, and she successfully got us nice and drunk. The cover charge is a little pricey, but it's vacation! Who care about money, right!? We had a really good time.

I was disappointed by this experience. The gallery is small and it only took us about 15 minutes to see everything. We were the only ones there, so it may be different with more people. You do get a free shot at the end and you can keep the shot glass. Your money can be better spent elsewhere.

Ice carvings were well done and the rum was good but the cost of the entrance was not worth the experience. OK for a one time thing but no return.

We wandered into Magic Ice not quite sure what to expect. It was a fun experience on a hot day. The inside setting was Wow and all the ice sculptures and lighting was fun to take in. We would do it again!

After walking about a mile from the port to Magic Ice we were ready to get cold! The service to get checked in was a bit slow, but we were able to pay with our Carnival Sign & Sail cards, as we had not booked this excursion through the ship. They give you gloves and larger parkas with hoods and... More

this is a very interesting place to visit when in St. Thomas. The ice sculptures amazing and kids and adults seem to have a ball while there. There is even a ice slide for the kids and a bar for the adults. Check it out when in St. Thomas

My girlfriend and I had a good time at Magic Ice. We were in St. Thomas for the day as we were part of a cruise. We walked around for a while and waited for Magic Ice to open. If you're warm natured like me, you'd love this escape from the heat/humidity. $22 each= 2 shots and you keep the... More

We came here during our Carnival Cruise and had a great time! $20 seemed pricey at first, but I think it was worth it for the experience, shot glass, and shot of rum. 2 shots on the ship are about $16 anyways! The bartender was very friendly. We were able to get some great pictures with and without the flash.... More
