Really enjoyed Magic Ice. Sculptures were fantastic. The bartender was great fun. I have heard of places like this in cold weather areas but was intrigued to find one in the Caribbean. The slide is carved out of ice -- great fun for kids and adults. Warm ponchos, gloves and leggings were provided and kept us comfortable for the length... More

Not what you expect when on a tropical island! My husband and I had a really good time. Fun to look at the ice sculptures and take silly pics. There's a slide made entirely of ice, and yes we did!! You have to do it...it goes sooo fast! We both actually did it several times...great for kids and adults. The... More

Really enjoyed Magic Ice. Sculptures were fantastic and cleverly done. Wes, the bartender, was great fun. Worth the visit!

We were so excited about doing this, based on the ads and the other reviews we'd seen, but I was very sorry that we went. Admission is pricy. We spent 92 dollars for a group of 6, 4 of whom were half price (senior/child). Instead of the highly detailed ice sculptures we were led to expect, everything was featureless and... More

We had a great time visiting with Wes and James. The sculptures and ambiance is nothing you'd expect in the USVI and the drinks were great. We spent about 90 minutes inside but it does get cold if you're not accustomed to 20 F temps. Overall a great experience for us.

I went with a friend today and was absolutely WORTH IT!! So unique, yes, of course it's cold ( I seriously don't understand reviews where people complain about it, I mean hello, everything here is made out of ice, even the bar itself, chairs, tables, shelves where the drink bottles are, so of course it's cold! ) . But knowing... More

$22 per person admission fee. It includes a shot glass and a shot of rum. Some types of liquor cost extra. Cool staff. Check it out. It is fun.

This is a great concept but wasn't 100% worth the money. Tickets were about $25 and we only spent about 20 minutes inside because it's just too cold to spend more. My best friend and I went and we are glad we did but don't expect anything too fancy. Some cool photo experiences inside and a free shot of rum... More

We went just to say we did and check it out. One of their generators died and the back area where the slide for kids was, was closed off so the kids were disappointed. They did reduce the admission fee but not by much and it was still over priced. It was a neat experience and you get a free... More

The sculptures were beautiful! You get a free shot of the islands' drink - Cruzan ;). You can also slide in there - a little slide - but all for the atmosphere. The museum tour is quite short for the price but who gets to go from winter to summer in a matter of seconds?
