Magic Ice, Charlotte Amalie

Feel the chill of the Arctic in the middle of the Caribbean at Magic Ice, a quirky attraction showcasing ice sculptures. The facility creates a sub-zero climate in order to house the sculptures, made from ice and snow by artists from all over the world. Take a walk through whole houses made of ice, and have fun snapping photos of friends and family members sitting in the large ice throne. You may not have packed for these conditions, but don't worry: parkas, gloves, and leg warmers are provided, so you won't have to endure the cold in your swimming gear.

  • 90 degrees outside the bldg. Nice and cold inside; along with the drinks from the ice bar. Very cool. No pund intended.. Recommend!
  • Awsome place. Good figures and the most important you can spend good time chilin inside while is damn hot outside
  • Awesome place!!! Great after a hot day, manager really nice and informative. Only thing no shotglass included with purchase anymore but the rum was delicious
  • Is a nice place, you will joy and have fun with your family and friends
  • Tourist trap. We had a good time when we visited, and the artistic ability of the ice carvers is definitely worth checking out. However, trip advisor and other reviews left me expecting more from this place. It's not a bad one time experience, but if you're on a time crunch (Cruise ship day stop) skip this and hit something else.
