Paula Deen's Lumberjack Show

Image for Thing To Do Detail

Watch professional lumberjacks compete in thrilling tests of strength and skill straight out of lumberjack legend at Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud show!

Root for your favorite competitor or just relish the amazing feats of the Feud’s lumberjacks and jills. These pros are the real deal--they hold multiple world championships in the toughest events, so they’ll climb faster, saw harder, and chop better than anyone else. The Lumberjack Feud show is 90 minutes of fast-paced and family-friendly competition in events including:

  • Ax throwing.
  • Speed climbing.
  • Boom run. Watch the jacks dash across logs in the water, trying to stay dry.
  • Log roll. It’s exactly what you’re thinking! Two lumberjacks try to throw each other off a floating, rolling log.
  • Double buck. Two jacks, one giant double-handled saw, and the speediest saw moves you’ll ever see.
  • Springboard chop. Beefy lumberjacks balance on narrow boards to reach the treetop and chop!

Hardy lumberjacks compete in any weather, even sleet or snow. But you don’t have to shiver or roast while you watch. The Feud goes on no matter what, while you sit in roofed, climate-controlled grandstands in comfort.

The Lumberjack Feud is a show for all ages. During intermissions, lumberjacks will call some kids from the audience to participate in hands-on events, so be sure to bring the youngsters. Don’t miss the Feud!


Once you’ve seen the show, you’ll want to be a lumberjack too. At Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Adventure theme park, you can try the log roll, boom run, and speed climbing for yourself. Don’t fret about getting wet or falling. You’ll be harnessed so you don’t get a dunk in the drink.

The High Woodsman Challenge obstacle course tests your balance and climbing skills. At Timber Towers, experience the heart-pounding plunge 80 feet to the ground. For a unique zip line thrill, ride the Flying Ox, a “zipline roller coaster” where you soar on a zipline suspended from a looping, twisting, roller coaster-style track.

Admission to Lumberjack Adventure is separate from admission to the Lumberjack Feud, so you can do either or both of these exciting outings. Book both your show tickets and theme park tickets as a package and you’ll save as much as $15 per person. Both are open year-round.
