The term "lumberjack" is apparently of Canadian derivation. Lumberjacks are workers in the logging industry, performing the initial harvesting and transport of trees for ultimate processing into forest products. The term usually refers to a bygone era, before 1945 in the United States, when hand tools were used in harvesting trees. Because of its historical ties, the term lumberjack has become deep-seated in popular culture through folklore, mass media and spectator sports. The actual work was difficult, hazardous, sporadic, low-paying, and primitive in living conditions, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity, confrontation with danger, and resistance to modernization. Let hefty lumberjacks in ripped, and sleeveless chequered shirts lead you through a remarkable experience as you journey back in time to the formation of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Two logging families, the McGraw and Dawsons compete for the remaining timber before the park opens.
Choose a side and then cheer a family to victory. The competition features real, ESPN Lumberjacks, Lumberjills, as in women loggers, and world champion Timber dogs. Watch the loggers climb the tree with such ease and agility. Appreciate the brute strength, rippling muscles and as the mighty axe hits the tree stumps with a loud thud. That is the way a lumberjack speaks in a feud. Horses come in to pull heavy logs which are then floated down the river. And if that is not enough, applaud the awesome World Champion Timber dogs, which are the fastest, high flying, dock diving dogs. They leap incredible heights which leaves you awed.
While watching the show, dine on Herb Roasted chicken breast, slow roasted pork loin, mashed potatoes with gravy, Southern Style green beans, macaroni and cheese, fresh dinner rolls and a tasty applejack fritter for dessert. In the early days, lumberjacks had to make preservatives and store them in jars, so now you are served strawberry preservatives in a jar for that authentic feel. Enjoy you meal with 15 hair-raising, axe swinging, chainsaw roaring events full of action and excitement. Lookout for the thin rounds of wood sliced off the logs and thrown into the air by the lumberjack for your kid to catch!
A recent addition to this Dinner Show is the Lumberjack Feud’s very own Mountain Jacks. This is composed of award winning blue grass players and Darrell Webb, and coupled with pop culture, humour and entertaining dance moves which will have you on your feet, dancing and going with the hilarious flow. And this is all before the dinner show begins.
The one-of-a-kind Flying Ox zipline roller coaster takes riders on a thrilling 1,000-foot-long ride 80 feet in the air above Lumberjack Square in the zipline position. Instead of traveling in a straight line, riders wind, drop, and soar through the air at approximately 15 miles per hour. The Flying Ox combines the thrill of ziplining with the track features of a roller coaster into one family fun attraction.
The new attraction was inspired by the history of the local logging industry. It is just one of several experiences located in the lumberjack-themed adventure park that opened in late 2018. Guests also can enjoy scenic views from the attraction’s 80-foot-tall observation tower. “With the addition of the Flying Ox, Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park is the only location in the world where thrill seekers can ride a cable-to-rail zipline roller coaster,” said Vice President of Marketing Josh Mayberry. “Lumberjack Square strives to provide a unique experience where guests can watch a lumberjack show then try their hand at some of the competitive events they see performed by the professional lumberjacks.” Guests can experience a log roll and boom run while secured by harnesses that keep participants from landing in the water. A lumberjack-themed ropes course, speed climb towers, and a simulated free-fall from an 80-foot-tall jump platform are also offered. In the coming months, the park will be adding springboard chop and cross-cut saw attractions. To engineer the new attraction, Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud partnered with CLIMB Works, the leader in the zipline industry. CLIMB Works is committed to exceeding safety standards and guest expectations.
The guest reviews at Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud Show & Adventure Park have been outstanding so far, and the team is excited to share a unique experience with everyone that visits Pigeon Forge! The park can accommodate groups of up to 400 per hour and is open daily rain or shine. Guests can purchase tickets at the Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud box office on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge or online.
