Interesting place. Ice sculptures were impressive, slide was fun, free shot was nice. They give you a large, warm jacket but with flip flops your toes do get cold. Would recommend as a pit-stop, but if you don't have the time - don't force it.

The front room where you don your parkas isn't much but you're not there to see that anyway. The ice sculptures are fantastic and knowing they change about 4 times a year means you can go back and see something new each time. The bar...More

Broken ice everywhere. Slippery ice on the floor. Poor selection of alcohol (approx 10 bottles). No souvenir shot glass with paid admission. Free shot was in small plastic container and it was nasty flavored rum. 25 bucks for entry. There was no one else in...More

The idea was cool, but at the time of our visit, we could see that some of the sculptures were already worn down.

This place is really unique, from the ice sculptures to the slide it is really neat place. Plus you get a shot with your ticket. Wes was great to deal with. Needless to say it is cold in there, but you will enjoy the visit.

Thank you very much for your visit and feedback! Wes says hi and hope to welcome you back sometime. The exhibit changes yearly, so there will always be new sculptures to look at! Warm Regards Magic Ice team

The ice sculptures were beautiful,each one with a different theme. My husband and I didn't quite know what to expect when we booked the excursion, and we didn't stay very long, but we were glad we went.

Wife and two teens did this while I had a couple beers around the corner. Said it was neat. Worker at desk was super friendly and enjoyed talking to him. Glad they went.

I tried to call the establishment but the business phone is out of service. I checked the website and it still says temporarily closed. The most recent facebook post is from August 2017–right before the hurricanes.
