Amazing experience
Sep 2020
What an experience. We did an axe-throwing, chain sawing and log rolling lesson. My kids -7&9 loved the log rolling. This is a DEFINITE must do on your trip to Acadia. Tina is amazing and a very engaging person to talk to and helped the kids get over any fears...Cant endorse enough

Yoho!

As a break from the wonderful outdoor activities of Acadia National Park, we took our 7 year old daughter on a short drive to Trenton to see Timber Tina's fantastic lumberjack show.

What an absolute blast. The show was funny, informative, and provided family friendly entertainment for guests of all ages. I was especially impressed that they performed the show despite the rain - smiling all the while - and the crowd sits in covered bleachers to stay dry for the entire show.

Tina was charismatic and told great stories of women's empowerment as a rare lumberjill in the logging industry, which provided a great message for our daughter.

Overall this was great fun and I'm so pleased that we did this. Thanks Tina!

Great experience for families!
Aug 2020
Very entertaining show suitable for the entire family! We did a private lesson after the show and Timber Tina was AMAZING (great price for the family lesson too)! She is full of energy and made it incredibly fun to learn how to saw, throw an ax and log roll. Strongly recommend the show and private lesson!

A must see event for a change of pace from sightseeing, shopping and hiking.
Aug 2020
The Great Maine Lumberjack show is a definite must see on your trip to Acadia. It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon after we had done a ton of hiking and sightseeing. We arrived at the location on a beautiful, sunny day and checked in with Tina, herself, as we entered. There was a cute cabin-y snack shack/gift store right when we walked in. Then there was a bleacher set up that had a roof over it. It was a really hot day with very little air circulating and only the top rows had shade, but any seat was a good seat. There was fun local Maine music playing that the kids and adults enjoyed listening to. Tina was the emcee of the event and she ran it like a pro. Her commentary was funny, witty, and described the history of lumberjacking in the area. Our group, which consisted of 4 adults and 4 children (ages 8-10) loved every minute of the action packed event. Lumberjacks competed in several events while grandstanding the whole way. The audience was divided in 2 to root for each of the lumberjacks. They were very impressive. Kids got to get involved in the action in the brief intermission by learning how to use one of the cross cut saws. We heard all about Tina's "celebrity" status during these interactions in an appropriate manner and how she came to be involved at such a young age in log rolling. The show was great and an appropriate length for my kids to sit through. Autographs and tree cookies were given out at the end.
The best part was yet to come though. I highly recommend signing up for a private lesson, which we did after the show. After the audience had left, the 8 of us got a private lesson on how to crosscut saw, how to throw axes and how to log roll. Everyone was thoroughly engaged the entire time. Tina is such a gracious host, so positive, so friendly and inspiring. She was patient and really encouraged the kids to do their best. We had a great time.
I would highly recommend this as a stop on your next adventure to the Bar Harbor/Acadia area.

Cute family outing for something different
Jul 2020 • Family
This was a really cute show! Our kids 13 and 10 plus parents really enjoyed it. Tina did a nice job of incorporating some historical and local facts all while showing us the tricks and trade of lumberjacking.

Lumberjack Tina’s Private Lesson
Jul 2020 • Family
We were a combined family of 11 with 7 teens. We were able to watch a show then did a private lesson with Tina. The highlight of our trip to Maine so far! The kids and adults absolutely loved log rolling and axe throwing. The guys in the show make it all look so easy and then giving it a try is a whole different story. Our pictures keep us laughing. The kids can’t stop talking about how much fun it was. You won’t be disappointed if you do a private lesson. Thank you Tina!!!

Rained Out but Not Disappointed
Aug 2019 • Family
We had a blast! Tina and the guys are very entertaining and there was much to learn about lumberjacking. The chance you take is weather and about 45min in a storm quickly rolled in and the show had to finish early. We appreciated all the safety considerations and the shorter show was understandable. We will definitely return on our next visit. Thanks Tina!

Thank you for taking the time to write! I remember this night and as I often say on a rainy night, they are sometimes my favorite shows.. up close and personal. I'm glad you found it informational, I want people to learn about the history, the tools, the reason they were and are used and about our sport currently... so thank you again and I look forward to seeing you next time! YO HO!

Best activity of the week!
Aug 2019 • Family
We visited Timber Tina with four boys (ages 10 and 12) for her lumberjack lesson. We had read some reviews so knew the boys would have fun but it went way beyond our expectations!

Tina was friendly and great with the kids. She started with cross-sawing then moved on to axe-throwing. All the boys loved the axe-throwing (as did the adults who also had a go) but the log-rolling was the biggest hit of the day. Tina gave them plenty of practice sessions before organising a little competition. One of the 12 year olds said it was ‘the most fun I’ve ever had!’ It would be fun for adults too.

Unfortunately we couldn’t stay for the show but I’m sure it would have been great.

Highly recommended!

Such a fun night for the whole family
Aug 2019
Tina and her Jacks did such a great job entertaining our whole family. We learned about the history of timbering in Maine and had fun doing it. Tina is so passionate and loves what she does. It was a great end to our day. Tickets are affordable. Our kids were able to participate in the show. This will be one of many great trip memories for us.
