Every time I visit St. Thomas I gotta go to Magic Ice. This place is so neat. In a country where electricity bills are astronomical i don't understand how they can cool an entire building like they do. The sculptures are very neat too. Great photo ops.

this was the first time i saw detailed ice sculptures outside of a wedding. the ice bar was really cool. it was actually what i liked the most. the statues were nice and they have a small slide. its not a very big place so unless you just want to hand out you could see everything in like 10-15min.

This was completely unexpected and a great treat. Do be prepared to spend a $25 cover charge, and the drinks are a bit expensive, but there's a real ice bar (the whole bar is made of ice). Plenty of nice statues and even an ice slide you can go down. The bartender was very friendly and funny. For once the... More

Yes, they have these around in different places however this was my first time going to any. I think the place is neat. It's a bit small, when you walk in you expect it to be a lot bigger. The neatest part about it, is the detail in the sculptures. It's pretty amazing all the time and effort that went... More

Stopping at the Magic Ice Bar helps you cool off after touring downtown. It's about 20° and for your paid entry you get a free shot of Cruzan Rum (try the banana) to help you warm up. Cool ice sculptures and a qwerky ice slide will keep you occupied for about 30mins lol. The price is a stretch ($25) but... More

It was cool inside the ice room. Some pictures I would recommend using the flash or it's hard to see. The ice slide is really small, I thought it would have been different by the picture on the website.

It was such a pleasure to find this treasure right near the waterfront. I have been to the island over 25 times and this was my first experience at Magic Ice. I'm sorry I hadn't vsited before. The bartender was amazing and this ice bar is such an oddity in the Caribbean. I highly recommend and the entry fee includes... More

You go into an Ice Cooler and look at statues. Not really worth 25. But we made it fun, I guess. The Bartender was sweet.

I've been to one of these in Vegas. There the theme was "adult" (it was a bar, no children allowed) and while it was novel, it was also quite small. This place is REALLY BIG! We were there on a no cruise ship day and my husband and I were the only two people there. We wandered through and were... More
