While a nice place to cool down from the heat, the cost is $22 per person for about 15min. of activity. You end up trying to stretch it out to make the cost worthwhile, but ultimately a free drink and ice sculptures are not worth $22each. Possibly 30 sculptures and an ice bar. The only cool thing is that you get a free shot and get to keep the shot glass.

We totally enjoyed this attraction. The two young ladies that were working on the day we were there were fantastic! We took all the time we wanted wandering around and they took pictures for us. The parkas that they provide are nice and warm that the cold isn't forcing you to move through quickly. It's not enormous, but it is something you won't get to see everywhere. We were on a cruise and our day at this port was a lot of rain. We were glad we headed there right away. The rum was so smooth. We chose coconut rum, and they added a little pinneapple juice to the shot glass, so we has minature drinks. I would go to this again. Thanks to Trip Advisor we learned about Magic Ice.

At about 85 degrees outside, Magic Ice was a nice break from the heat. Putting on a parka and heading into a freezer in the Caribbean was something so unique and fun. We went down the slide, had our shot, and checked out all the sculptures. It doesn't take long to go through as you are on your own to browse. Very neat idea in a tropical location!

awesome ice sculptures that were well worth the money. Wear the clothes they give you!!! Go down an ice slide, sit on ice chairs and take lots of pictures! It doesn't take more than 40 minutes to go thru then you are back in the sun again!

At $21 p/p, we got our money's worth for a unique experience. The place is on the main street. But it is a small, unassuming place, so you could miss it as it blends in on a crowded street. We knew it was next to a "Burger King". The entrance fee included a shot of your choice of "fruity" rum, gloves, parka and leg warmers. I wore sandals that day, and although it was cold, the temperature was tolerable. I even slid down a small, very slippery ice slide. My husband "froze" the whole time, but I took it all in and enjoyed the uniqueness of it. The ice carvings were colorful and unique. I would definitely do this again!
