The Coaster At Goats on the Roof

Every state has their share of quirky attractions: In Iowa it’s the largest frying pan, in Arizona it’s Rooster Cogburn’s Ostrich Ranch, and in Gatlinburg it’s this unique shop and entertainment area that features home made goodies, the chance to mine for colorful jewels, an opportunity to ride a roller coaster, and of course the stars of the show, goats on the roof! Your Tennessee vacation spent in one of our Gatlinburg cabins is about to take a turn to the unusual. If you have the time, this attraction is a can’t miss!


Located at 1341 Wears Valley Road, Pigeon Forge

Apparently, the idea is not an original one. A Swedish restaurant in Wisconsin came up with the idea over 40 years ago, and the owners of our local attraction co-opted it for themselves (after retaining a licensing agreement from the Swedish restaurant.) Today, the 2-story shop offers souvenirs that serve as terrific reminders of the fun you had during your visit, including tasty treats such as homemade fudge, jams, jellies (including moonshine jelly) and our favorite summer delight, homemade ice cream.

When you visit the second floor, where they display a large selection of clothing, you can watch the goats from the large windows, but if you want to get an up close and personal look at the mischievous antics of the seven cloven-hooved creatures that make their living on the roof of this fun shop, buy some goat chow from inside the store and head outside to the goat-cycles that will take you to their rooftop domicile!

The mining part of Coaster at Goats on the Roof is similar to panning for gold, only your price is a colorful jewel: rubies, sapphires, emeralds that shine beautifully in the Tennessee sun when all the dirt and debris is washed away.

And finally, as if all the above hilarity wasn’t enough, the Goat Coaster built in the backyard of GOTR is an alpine coaster designed to let you go as fast (speeds top out at 30 MPH) or as slow as you want; you are in charge of the brake, so it’s all in your hands! Lasting for seven minutes and offering views of the surrounding countryside, riding the roller coaster and spending time at this fun roadside attraction are guaranteed to add a giggle to your getaway!
