Tip: You can control the speed at which you travel but it is shorter than others and will be over before you know it. You will want to do another and another ride.

"Fun but doesn't last long"
July, 2018
This was alot of fun! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because it felt like it was over so fast. You can control the speed of your cart by the handles which is a good thing if you don't want to go super fast. I'd do it again but for 6 of us the price was kinda steep for the experience .

"Awesome view!"
June, 2018
This coaster was a mile long with fantastic views. Love that you can control your speed as you ride so you can enjoy the view as well as the fun of the ride. The shop was interesting and the goats a quirky addition-but fun. Staff were not very friendly however so I was compelled to ride a second time.

Great clean family place to have a great afternoon! We ALL loved everything and the pricing is better than others. And, you can ride again for only $5 (or someone else can ride after you for only $5). Super friendly staff and exciting ride with an awesome view. Plus, you can feed the goats via bicycle. Kids loved and so did mom and dad.

Reviewed December 31, 2018 NEW
I had ordered tickets online a few days before our vacation, so I was able to save about $6 by going to their website and prepaying and picking the day we chose to go..we got there around lunchtime and the line wasnt very long. 2 out of 3 of our kids loved it! Our 4 yr old whom is our daredevil, would have stayed there all day. Our middle child is skiddish of heights, done it, but was in no way wanting to do it again. My husband, myself, and the other 2 kids loved it thou! One great aspect of the attraction is, that once you buy the ticket and go ride, you can bring your stub back to the ticket window and only pay $5 to ride again..you can do that all day long..so 3 of us done that and rode again.. I would highly recommend this as a great, exhilarating outing for the family!

We like everything about this place except for the unexperienced rider in front of us that was constantly stopping on the tracks and slowing everyone down which mostly ruined the ride but I can’t really blame the people who run this place. We will be going here again tomorrow and hopefully will have a better time.

"Coaster fun"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 27, 2018 NEW
We had a blast at Goats on a roof. The alpine coaster was a lot of fun. This ride takes you up the side of a mountain, then you can control your speed with a brake on the cart when you come down the mountain. My kids enjoyed this coaster a lot. If you have younger kids they can ride with an adult. It was worth the time involved for the 35 minute wait. I’ve been to amusement parks and waited for rides that were not as fun as this one. We loved the goat concept as there really are goats on the roof.

"After a trip to cades cove "

Reviewed December 27, 2018 NEW
After going to Cades Cove,we stopped here . The teenagers wanted to ride the coaster. The price was $15.00 per person- ages 13 & up. 12 & under was $12.00 per child. Younger was even cheaper. Each person had to be least 54 inches tall to ride by themselves. One could ride double with another person. There was a gift shop there, that had all kinds of souvenirs that one could buy. You could definitely smell the goats on the roof ..
