Log Roller

Key Log Roller 1There are few activities that family members of all ages and sizes can participate in at the same time. With Key Log Rolling, no one is left on the sidelines. Even spectators who want to stay high and dry, can enjoy watching the fun, while cheering everyone on. Soon you’ll be challenging each other to some friendly log rolling competition.
