Well, how shall I put this... Magic Ice is rated the #1 attraction in Charlotte Amalie on TripAdvisor, so I guess we had somewhat high expectations (on the other hand, Charlotte Amalie is not exactly New York City or Las Vegas when it comes to tourist attractions, so it's probably easy to become number one).
We paid $20 each for admission into what appears to be a converted refrigerated warehouse that is filled with ice sculptures of dubious artistic value. The whole facility is not all that big, and within fifteen minutes you can have a good look at all the artifacts. Some of the exhibits were barely recognizable and especially the thinner parts of some sculptures seemed to have melted a lot (maybe due to visitors touching them frequently or maybe the place wasn't cold enough after all).
The $20 admission fee includes a free shot of rum at the ice bar, but we gracefully declined.
I don't recommend taking pictures inside Magic Ice: (a) it's not worth it, and (b) the inside of your camera will fog up, and the camera will be unusable for about an hour until it clears up.
As far as I can see, the only good reason to spend your time and money for Magic Ice is to cool off when you're close to a heat stroke.
