We were intrigued. An ice sculpture show in a tropical island. Why not? Well, it is fun. The sculptures are decent, but I have seen nicer ones at weddings. Still, the bar made of ice was cool (pun absolutely intended). It is VERY cold inside and even with the garments which are provided w/admission we were within 20 minutes freezing.... More

Nice place to go to cool down. The price to enter is a little steep for what it is. However felt it was a good stop just not cheap but very little is here in at Thomas.

You can shop, go to the beaches and do the other regular tourist things. But if you want to see something different and then have a really cold beer, this is the place. Even though the temp is kept at 23 degrees we were not cold as they provide gear to keep warm. You can look at the ice carvings... More

It is an" OK" attraction - kind of different for the Caribbean, but not worth the price of admission - $23 per person. It takes about ten-fifteen minutes to see and do everything. Bartender is interesting. I don't "get" the high ratings that other Trip Advisor reviewers give Magic Ice, but to each his own. That makes life interesting!!

Magic Ice was a nice departure from the heat outside. We were the only ones there during our visit. They keep it at -5C, not too cold for us Canadians. They have sculptures made of ice and a bar as well. You get a complementary rum drink and free shot glass. It was a little pricey for the time we... More

I visited with my husband and teenaged son. The concept is interesting and we enjoyed looking at the sculptures and taking some pictures. It just didn't really strike us as a highlight, but it was certainly nice to get out of the crowds and heat.

Magic Ice was a nice place, pretty unique smack dab in the middle of beautiful St. Thomas. I just didn't think that the price matched the value. If the price was cut in half it would have been worth it. The 4 step ice slide was cute and fun to go down, the drinks we bought were well made, the... More

Our group visited Magic Ice last week. It's 22 degrees in there so was a nice respite from the heat. They give you a parka, leg warmers and gloves to keep you warm. It was $22 each, with senior citizens (over 65) only $12--a little high, but worth it. We had a lot of fun and it was a great... More
