“Fun show for family”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We visited in mid-June and it was small crowd for the Friday evening show. The host and lumberjacks tried to get people into it, and we tried to help by rooting for our side, but the audience near us was either tired, bored, or just used to being on their phones all the time and didn't appreciate a live show. The show itself was entertaining, the young guys were pretty talented and while some of the jokes were corny, there were enough funny moments to keep it moving. I did think some of the "conversation" about the lumberjack's girlfriend went on too long, but I guess it's part of the show. It was nearly a two hour show, so you get your money's worth and our kids each took home souvenirs. It's worth seeing at least once!

“Great Show”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

The show was a riot. The lumberjacks are both knowledgeable & humorous. They definitely get the audience involved. We loved that the lumberjacks came from logging areas right from Northern Wisconsin. We can't wait to return next year.

“Fun for older kids and adults”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We took little kids and they enjoyed it. Good history lesson about the area, although ours may have been a little too young for hat.

“Good to see once”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

It was a good show with two teams . One was a 20 plus year veteran and other team had a young kid . So we all knew who would win .
The guy mixes some history with few jokes .

“Very talented lumberjacks, show was rather lame”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The lumberjacks (4 of them) were very talented in their abilities, but the jokes were lame, and somewhat inappropriate for a younger audience. Some of the "competition" was staged as to who won. I did not think it was worn the admission price.
