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

We were vacationing on the Carnival Magic and St.Thomas was one of the ports we visited. While there, we went to the Ice Bar, which was something different to see from the usual port stops. We were pleasantly surprised with the unique beauty of this unusual place. Although the "tour" is only a walk through, it is literally a "cool"... More

Every time I visit St. Thomas I gotta go to Magic Ice. This place is so neat. In a country where electricity bills are astronomical i don't understand how they can cool an entire building like they do. The sculptures are very neat too. Great photo ops.

this was the first time i saw detailed ice sculptures outside of a wedding. the ice bar was really cool. it was actually what i liked the most. the statues were nice and they have a small slide. its not a very big place so unless you just want to hand out you could see everything in like 10-15min.

This was completely unexpected and a great treat. Do be prepared to spend a $25 cover charge, and the drinks are a bit expensive, but there's a real ice bar (the whole bar is made of ice). Plenty of nice statues and even an ice slide you can go down. The bartender was very friendly and funny. For once the... More
