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

A very unique experience! We had a great time. Some of the sculptures were hard to see but you got the general idea. The bar was really cool, literally and figuratively. It definitely was a little pricey (probably to help pay for the electric bill which must be sky high because its kept at 23 degrees all the time). Other... More

It was fun, but the place is little too small than I expected. $22 per person and you get free shot of rum and you got to keep their shot glass, I think that's pretty cool.

Magic Ice was definitely the most touristy thing we did in the Virgin Islands. It was a little pricey too. We had shots of rum for my husband's birthday and went down the ice slide several times. We had fun and the workers there were great. Only go there if you aren't concerned about the price!

This place was very interesting and I'm glad we went. Next time I will wear warmer shoes because my toes turned into popsicles in my sandals! The ice slide was a lot of fun and then we got to have a free souvenir shot glass and a free shot. I had a shot of the Cruzan Banna Rum and it... More
