The sculptures were beautiful! You get a free shot of the islands' drink - Cruzan ;). You can also slide in there - a little slide - but all for the atmosphere. The museum tour is... read more

This is a great concept but wasn't 100% worth the money. Tickets were about $25 and we only spent about 20 minutes inside because it's just too cold to spend more. My best friend and I went and we are glad we did but don't expect anything too fancy. Some cool photo experiences inside and a free shot of rum... More

We went just to say we did and check it out. One of their generators died and the back area where the slide for kids was, was closed off so the kids were disappointed. They did reduce the admission fee but not by much and it was still over priced. It was a neat experience and you get a free... More

Took our 11 & 13 year old sons. It felt a bit like a meat locker - a long hallway with metal walls and ice sculptures on the sides. Some were very good, others, pretty average. It's cool how they have colored lights that cycle to illuminate the sculptures. No signs next to them so don't always know who /... More

This place was awesome. Loved the sculptures and the music was great! You can only last about 20 to 25 minutes but it is worth the cost.

This is the second ice bar that I have been in, so while I was not blown away by the uniqueness of it, I WAS blown away by the great job they did with this facility. It is literally an ice bar with ample niches, walls, benches, statues, etc. to take as many imaginative pictures as you can think of.... More

It's a good place to visit to see the ice sculptures. Free shot of rum with admission, you can keep the shot glass.

We went to see magic ice because it sounded interesting. It is kinda cool, no pun on words. Once is enough and in 20 minuets you get your shot see it all and your done. You must see it and ride the slide. A little pricey for what you get.
