Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show reviews
This was just a fun lighthearted show. A great way to be introduced to the skills required in lumberjacking. The guys really played it up and kept it family friendly. more »
I really wasn't sure what to expect from this Show. Normally I do not love things like this. But so many people I know have seen this show and the group I was with all wanted to see it. It was very..... more »
Fun for all ages. I mean even our teenagers enjoyed it. They also liked it when they were toddlers, the last time we came to Ketchican. Fun to watch, funny patter. The ax throwing contest afterward is a kick. Nice gift shop (I bought a beautiful rustic wood walking cane for $16, about the cheapest thing I saw on the whole trip). Staff is obviously having fun, but they take care of business. If you're there, go there. It's worth it.
Fun for any age . Stadium seating so you get a great view of the entire show. Be careful make sure you sit on the United States side of the stadium.....Yoo Hoe.
