The picture opportunities were endless starting with putting on the parkas and gloves. Inside was indeed cold but you are dressed for it. The sculptures were beautiful. there is one of a... More

It was a nice break from the hot sun. Worth $22.00, probably not but fun just the same. There are about 15 ice sculptures but I'm from Michigan so not a big deal. The ice bar was cool and the flavored rum was very good. Bartender was very liberal with rum shots. Took some fun pictures and it was a... More

OK, let's start with the price tag. $22 for adults and $12 for children. So what did I get for my $56? Well, first, you get to dress up in warm clothes. Then using our own camera, the friendly staff took our picture in front of their polar bear mural. We then entered the ice museum. Inside, we found it... More

I can understand the reviewers who call this a tourist trap and a waste of money, but I totally disagree. Once we finished with the tour, we did think it was a bit overpriced at $20 or $22 (I can't remember which) per adult, but seriously, I've never been to an ice sculpture gallery, and so it was worth the...

We went to Magic Ice while on a cruise. We walked from the cruise port. It took about 30 minutes (we stopped along the way for pictures). It's very easy to get there because the whole way is paved. It's a safe walk from the cruise port. When we got there, we were given coats and gloves. We went inside... More

Is really a family place. I honestly expected to be bigger. You can see it in under 5 minutes or less. The best thing (for me) was the Cruzan shot at the end.

Magic Ice was one of the attractions that is located in downtown. With the humid and constant hot weather, it was a nice place to chill. They offer a jacket to wear inside the freezer. In the beginning I didn't wear it because I was so hot, but after 3 minutes, it started to get real cold. We have drinks... More
