Great place to visit when the heat of the day is getting to you. Go from 85 degrees out side to below freezing in an instant. Not only that but they have and ice bar inside. It is located right along Veterans Drive across from the Harbour.

So cool. Like literally. Everything is made of ice. The bar the glasses the decor all ice. $25 US to get in but very worth it. They give you gloves and a parka to keep you warm

We enjoyed this place so much! we went for my birthday and my significant other planned it.. ice sculptures were fun. The bar at the end is so cool- wish it was a longer bar experience. Rum shots :)

We took a taxi over to Magic Ice from Havensight dock. It is quite pricy but it is very unusaly to see this in a Tropical Island. It is very cold there but the carvings are very good., So we think it was worth the money. Don't plan on a long stay in the frigid cold tho.

Save the price of the visit and drop into a supermarket.... the food freezers are probably more interesting.

Staff was very helpful as we wandered into Magic Ice. We thought it was hawaiian shave ice (oops) and found out it was a bar. This was more than a bar, this was an attraction. We were bundled in parkas and gloves (provided) and wandered through a very cold world of ice sculptures, a throne, tables, and generally interesting experience... More
