Goats on the Roof 03/30/2015

Our visit to Goats on the Roof in March allowed us to finally ride the Goat Coaster, however we were there earlier in 2015 in January and it was still under construction. Here’s some pictures from both visits!

This is a Goat… well on the Roof πŸ˜› eating out of his food. Also in the background you can see them working on the coaster.

However not all Goats are on the roof, some are on the ground outside as well.

We’re back at Goats on the Roof! See the bicycle in the middle there, that’s one of the neat ways that guests can feed the goats on the roof. They buy food, then put it in the cup, and then pedal on the bike and it will carry the food to the roof for the goats up there.

As with any other alpine coaster it’s a long climb to the top.

The coaster has some good speed but…
....there's brakes at just about every turn.

Still fun though!

The Coaster at Goats on the Roof is a fun ride though it’s not the best alpine coaster in the area. It has some great speed but there are brakes at almost every turn which kills some of the momentum, however it’s still a fun attraction in Pigeon Forge. The goats are fun to visit and neat to see the wacky contraptions to get food to the ones of the roof, plus there’s a random gift shop with tons of wacky items. If you have some free time in Pigeon Forge this is a fun place to visit. As for the alpine coasters in the area I’d rank them like this:

1. Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster

2. The Coaster at Goats on the Roof

3. Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster
