Audience members will be treated to an unforgettable experience as they journey back in time to the days before the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when the logging industry ruled the area. The show features an “end-of-season” feud between two families whose names were synonymous with the timber business – the Dawsons and the McGraws. World-class lumberjacks represent both families in a variety of thrilling, fast-paced tests of skill and prowess ranging from chopping and axe throwing to tree climbing and log rolling.
Guests become part of the experience as they join in the competitive spirit, cheering for their Dawson or McGraw lumberjack family. Children and adults alike are invited to try their hand at cross-cutting with a lumberjack during the show’s intermission.
