The Bottom Line:

Since you will be using your hands to pull yourself up, your hands may get a little sore. If you try multiple times, there will be a chance of blisters.

Think you’re strong? The Lumberjack Lifts may tell a different tale of your muscle power. Bring out your inner lumberjack and see what it takes to make it in the this intense world of lumberjacking, where muscles are one of your major tools!

You can go solo or take a partner with you to attempt this feat. Take a seat on the chair, which holds two people, strap yourself down, and take off. You’ll start out at the bottom of a 30 foot tower with the goal being to pull yourself 25 feet into the air using just your natural strength! You’ll find a rope in between the two chairs that you and your partner can use to pulley yourselves up! If you can make the trek, you’ve got the strength of a lumberjack.

Once you’re at the top of the tower, you can lock yourself in lace to take in the view, or you can let go of the rope to slowly fall back down to the bottom where you started. There is a leverage system in place, so you won’t be crashing down at high speeds when you let go. This ride is the ultimate test of strength! Are you up for the challenge?
