This is the most fun and unique place to visit in the Smoky Mountains. Come and see what Goats on the Roof is all about.
In the classic '80s movie Top Gun, lead characters Maverick and Goose famously said, “I feel the need, the need for speed!” In their case, that meant hopping into the cockpit of a fighter jet. However, the next time you're on vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains, we'd like to suggest a mode of transportation that will allow you to move along at a good clip but is also much less risky: go-carts.
Even though the name of our attraction is Goats on the Roof, many visitors still seem surprised to discover that we actually do have goats living on the roof of our main building. (See our last blog post for the full story on WHY we have goats on our Pigeon Forge rooftop.) Our guests love getting up-close views of our goats and even sending them buckets of feed with our unique “goat cycle” device.
You have to admit it: Goats On The Roof is a catchy name for a tourist attraction. And for the past 10 years, we've answered a lot of questions about that name and how it came to be. Regardless of the origins, we're proud to say that we actually DO have live goats on our roof. What you see is what you get. But if you want to know more about WHY they're up there in the first place, then we'll share that backstory with you in this post.
At Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge, they're proving that any time of year is a great time to hook onto a sturdy steel cable and take off flying through the air like a bird. The popular outdoor attraction is open from March through December, offering numerous opportunities to experience the sensation of zooming through the treetops of the Smoky Mountain foothills.
In the decade that we've been in the Smokies of East Tennessee, all of us at Goats On The Roof have prided ourselves on offering visitors a unique mountain experience. And we've tried to offer entertainment that fits in with our natural surroundings. For example, our resident goats are alpine creatures that are comfortable in high altitudes and on steep slopes.
If you've ever taken the scenic drive from Pigeon Forge to Wears Valley (or vice versa), you may have noticed something a little unusual just off Wears Valley Road. In fact, you may have seen live goats hanging out on the roof of one particular roadside business. If that's the case, don't worry; you weren't seeing things. That's just a typical day here at our unique Pigeon Forge attraction called, appropriately enough, Goats On The Roof of the Smokies.
An alpine coaster, also known as mountain coaster, is a fairly new amusement ride that you will definitely love as the thrill it gives you is really incredible. The most important thing you need to know about this particular Pigeon Forge attraction is that it is perfectly safe. In fact, it is much safer than its predecessor, an alpine slide, especially considering the most advanced technology used to reduce the risk of accidents.
