One of the things we did during our day in St. Thomas was to go a place called Magic Ice. Apparently, “ice bars” are the cool thing to go to these days. We’d never heard of it until it was listed as one of Carnival’s excursions when we got on board. St. Thomas’s Magic Ice is World’s Largest Ice Bar, so how could we not go! We booked it through Carnival because it was a little cheaper. Adults are $21.99. Children for $13.99. I was unable to locate the price on the Magic Ice website. Ticket includes admission, 1 shot of Cruzan Rum, 1 Magic Ice glass souvenir, use of warm ponchos, gloves, and leg warmers.
When you get there you walk into the lobby area, where you get a one-size fits all poncho and gloves. And since most everyone who comes there will have shorts on, they have optional leg covers as well. They just velcro strap them on below the knee. We were glad we put these on as it’s about 22° inside. The lady working there was super nice and offered to take our picture before we went inside.
You enter into the freezer area, where they have fairly loud music blasting, which was fun. You just walk through the room and look at the ice carvings.
You can go up to the bar and get your free shot and buy more if you like. The 2 free options were coconut, which Rob downed and I had the blueberry lemonade.
At the end of the room there’s an ice slide that’s fast and fun.

Rob went down the slide several times.
Here’s Rob and I sliding, but not together.
Pretty amazing ice drawings

When you finish, you exit back out into the lobby area, where you can take off all the warm clothes they’ve loaned you. On your way out, you get your Magic Ice glass souvenir. Overall, I don’t think we were as impressed like we thought we might be. It’s still an interesting concept that I think most people would enjoy it.
After leaving Magic Ice, we took the tram to go up to Paradise Point. Look for that post soon.
