Owner description: Experience World Champion Lumberjacks in a fast paced action packed lumberjack competition, a Mackinaw City MUST SEE! Shows at Jack Pine Lumberjack Shows are approximately an hour long, delivered in a competition format, in which the audience is divided up into two rival logging camps, each camp cheering for their lumberjack. It demostrates the turn of the century skills of the lumberjack including chopping, sawing, axe throwing, cross-cut sawing, speed climbing and logrolling. In addition to the competition, there is also a chain saw carving demonstration. The show educates the audience in the rich history of Michigan's logging past. It is fast paced, up-beat and keeps the audience involved. A fun show for the entire family, children under the age of 5 are free!

“Great family fun to watch and you can take your dog!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Wife and I have visited this area for past several years. We've seen the ads for here but didn't know if it was mainly for kids. We asked the front desk at the hotel and they said it was for everyone and that no one comes back without a smile.
It lasted about an hour and 15 minutes. The seating is metal bleachers and mostly covered. It started to rain and the first 3 rows had to move. They allow you to bring your dog to the show and said there is at least 1 at every one.
Great entertainment by the professional lumberjacks. Will keep you entertained and will give you your money's worth. The emcee is funny and you can tell really wants to put on a family show. Look around for coupons here or ask the hotel you stay in and they can probably get a discount ticket. Our tickets were $11 a piece.

“Lumberjack show - excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

First time attending this lumberjack show. Great fun for the entire family. Jokes, stories of how some of the events got started, a little history too. My family loved, loved, loved it. The men who compete in the show are athletes and compete professionally also. They are very good at what they do and make it look easy! I especially loved the idea of splitting the group in two and each half cheered on one of the two competitors. Added a little bit of competition to the show and made it fun. Price was reasonable, plenty of parking, plenty of seating and the seating is covered if it rains (which it did). Snacks are available too. Bathrooms were very clean. I'd attend again next year if we are in the area. Take your family to this show, you won't be sorry.

“A campy, fun experience, esp for kids...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have always been curious about this Lumberjack Show in Mackinaw City, and so we finally decided to give it a go. I would have to say, by and large, it is for kids. There is humor they can understand and the little bit of humor that is for the adults is mild and the kids won't notice. However, even adults enjoy the show, and there is some very cool, professional lumberjack moves and maneuvers that entrance everyone! Log rolling and climbing the poles are the most exciting parts of the show.

All seating provides good views. Metal bench seats. Try for the top rows. If you have kids, they might enjoy being down closer to the action. There is a small concession stand, bathrooms, and a few gift items for sale. $13 adult ticket. Gravel parking lot.

My 5 yr old daughter and I went to the show and had so much fun. She loved the log rolling and all the events. It was nice to have them involve the kids and take pictures with them. Definitely a fun evening for all ages.

This was a great evening for our family (teens and adults). It was good, clean fun, and some great lumberjack skills as well. We highly recommend it.
