We took our grandkids to the Lumberjack. Super fun entertainment for young and old alike. We are local and took advantage of the end of season discount for locals only. We will be back again next season. Nice wholesome family fun.

It’s about 1.5 hour show and a lot of fun. You are seated like in an amphitheater topped with the roof, so even it is raining outside, you are perfectly fine. The show is entertaining, they guys ask the crowd to participate in the show....More

The lumberjack show is corny but so much fun. You have to do it! Although it's a silly show, pitting the American vs. the Canadian lumberjacks against each other, with the audience divided between the two teams, these guys have skills! It's not to be...More

Good show. Very funny and thrilling. The guys put in allot of effort and it shows. Sometimes it was hard to keep up with as it was very fast paced and i did not know where to look but over all it was really good.

Saw this show when our Cruise ship visited. We've never seen anything like it before. It was excellent, well worth it. What makes it fun is the Canadian American rivalry between the lumberjacks. It's only an hour show but seems longer because of what's going...More

These lumberjacks were very entertaining and very good at what they do! It was cold outside and the heated seating area was nice.

We had pre-booked this directly with the show and it was great value. Just a 5 minute walk from the ship the whole show was well presented and showed off the skills of the lumberjacks. My wife and sister-in-law were particularly impressed (can’t think why!)...More

There are typically at least 2 shows per day/very busy when cruise ships are in town though, but worth your time.
