When it comes to attractions in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee there are literally dozens to choose from. Recently I got a chance to visit The Coaster at Goats on the Roof just down the road from Dollywood. Considering this was my first visit, I was skeptical about a roller coaster at a place that has literal goats on their roof. However, it didn’t disappoint!
It’s important to note, the name “Goats on the Roof” isn’t just a catchy title. There are actual live goats. And indeed, they are on the roof.
For just a few dollars you can buy a cup of goat chow in this handy cup. It actually doubles as a souvenir!
More importantly, you can take some of this goat chow and add it to the cup attached to the bike above. You then peddle the bike which brings the food up to the goats… on the roof! Click the play button on the video above!
If you’re looking to hand feed the goats here, you can do that as well!
However, you probably want to know about the actual Coaster at Goats on the Roof. You may not believe me, but I think it may be worth it to ride this coaster just for the lift hill alone!
The track winds through a hillside in The Great Smokey Mountains and during my visit during the fall while the leaves were just turning, it was really breathtaking.
The track is 4375 feet long and the coaster itself tops out at around 30 miles per hour. Just like other alpine coasters, you can control the speed and break your car as you feel necessary.
The Coaster at Goats on the Roof on the way down provides a great view of Pigeon Forge as well as goats! Which happen to be on the roof! It’s a weird combination, but it works! For more information, visit their website here!
