We know you probably want to know what to expect when you visit, so here’s what you need to know about Goats on the Roof in Pigeon Forge:

Goats Actually Live on the Roof

This attraction truly lives up to its name because goats live on the roof of the general store. They roam around, enjoying themselves as they hop and play together.

Guests are able to interact with the goats by purchasing goat chow and sending it up the “goat-cycle.” It takes the chow up to the roof where the goats can enjoy a meal!
