Visitor Tips and News About Lumberjack Adventure
No one has commercially logged in the Great Smoky Mountains since the early 1930s, before the region became a national park. But that isn't stopping a new attraction in Pigeon Forge celebrating a heritage of merry tree harvesting. The "Lumberjack Feud," touted as the "Smokies' newest, rowdiest dinner show," opened on August 26. The attraction also features a Smoky Mountain Forest History Center and Lumberjack Hall of Fame.
The main attraction at Lumberjack Feud is a 1,000 seat dinner theater arena where world champion lumberjack athletes wield axes, chainsaws, climb trees, and balance on logs in water. The performance is designed around a historical feud between two logging families squabbling to chop down the last tree before the feds turn everything into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's Paul Bunyan meets the Hatfields and the McCoys....
The attraction is affiliated with a popular lumberjack performance in Ketchikan, Alaska.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 08/23/2011]
