The concept of having goats on a roof dates back to the 1970s, when Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant in Door County, Wisconsin was known for its roof-munching inhabitants. Here at Goats on the Roof in Pigeon Forge, we’ve stayed faithful to those original alpine roots by building a mountain coaster that’s become one of our most popular attractions – after the goats, of course.
Measuring nearly a mile in length and reaching top speeds of nearly 30 miles per hour, The Coaster at Goats on the Roof offers thrills for all ages, and because you the passenger are in control of the brake, you can make the experience as tame or as hair-raising as you’re comfortable with.
Each cart is designed to carry one or two passengers, and once your sled is transported to the top of the mountain, gravity takes over for the winding, twisting 4,375-foot journey to the bottom. Along the way, you’ll enjoy gorgeous mountain views and one of the smoothest but wildest seven-minute rides in town.
Note that we do have a few restrictions for the sake of safety. The person controlling the sled must be at least 5’ 4” tall and must be at least 16 years old if a passenger is on board. The minimum height is 3’ 1”, and the maximum height is 7’. The maximum allowable weight is 375 pounds..
