Great way to cool off in the scorching heat! Some of the sculptures needed replacing as they looked "melted". They do fly in an ice sculptor from Europe to do this and it was... read more

Make your way around the corner from Palm Passage, and you'll find Magic Ice. You'll notice it by it's well paved, and welcoming entrance. We were greeted by very friendly staff, who explain the experience, which is great for any age, all ages were enjoying it when we went in. The giant doors make for a grand entrance too! As... More

The concept was fabulous - gorgeous ice sculptures with interesting lighting. Unfortunately, most had melted just a bit and lost much of their character as the edges were softened or gone completely. We could usually determine the original intent of the sculpture, be it dolphin or sea turtle, but much was lost in the translation as a result of melted... More

$22 for less than 15 minutes of obviously old exhibits is more than we could bear. This place is a complete and total let down. The free Cruzan samples were more like sips and a joke. The owner has stopped giving away the free shot glasses without notice so don't go in expecting to receive those. Currently only one room... More

I really wanted to like this place, but I just didn't. A lot of the sculptures were broken or melted, some of them to the point that you couldn't really tell what they were. Several of the humanoid ones were completely missing arms! It was also way smaller than I was expecting. It certainly wasn't big enough to spend thirty... More

Great way to cool off in the scorching heat! Some of the sculptures needed replacing as they looked "melted". They do fly in an ice sculptor from Europe to do this and it was definitely needed when we visited. Kids still had a great time (ages 6-7) and especially loved the ice slide they got to ride. The ice bar... More

We walked down from Blackbeard's Castle to the shopping district and came across this place. It was a fun way to cool off from the heat of the day.

As Canadians it seems a little weird to fly to a hot destination to go to an ice bar, but it was a lot of fun (and everyone else we talked to inside was also from cold climates haha). It was definitely worth the price and we actually got an extra drink inside besides the shot included which was also... More

I arrived here after paying $29 in a truck , cattle wagon ! The cost was unbelievable $ 200 to get in for watered down drinks - this is the biggest rip off in St Thomas !! And it closes at 5 pm finished or not I suggest you go and have a great day in Water Island and enjoy... More

Magic Ice was nice at first, but then the further we went inside, the worst it was. Sculptures were melted and broken to the point where we couldn't figure out what it was. It was dark and there was yellow caution tape in some areas like it was a crime scene. It probably did have the world's largest ice bar,... More
