Goats on the Roof? How did it get there? Wild goats can climb trees, and some goats and sheep can walk along a ledge not much wider than a tightrope. With their amazing climbing talent, spectacular spiralling horns, and ability to live in some of the world's steepest, most forbidding habitats, goats and sheep are worthy of our attention and appreciation. The Goats on the Roof at Pigeon Forge are domesticated animals who graze on the Roof.

The renowned Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant in Door County, Wisconsin first came with this concept 40 years ago. They began to let their pets graze on the sodded roof of their eatery Sister Bay. This attracted crowds for years and from afar. Till date Sister Bay is still going strong and they help start the Pigeon Forge attraction. Come join the fun and witness this unique feature at the Great Smoky Mountains.

Do stop in, get a can of goat food and hop on their special "goat-cycle." The cycle transports you and the food up to the roof. Take pictures of these cute animals chow down on their favourite snack. Save it as a souvenir. However you are not allowed to pet these creatures. For a closer view, head up to the second level. Gaze out of the window at the bearded creatures in an air conditioned comfort. There is no charge to watch, so come on in.

Apart from this, they have gem mining too. Get ready to do some mining like the old-timers did in the American West. Search for rare gems like rubies, sapphires and emeralds. Start with a bucket of gem-rich soil and then sift through it in their authentic water sluice. The moving current of water washes the soil away through the screened tray. Behold the treasures that remain behind!

Their selection of homemade fudges, cookies and ice cream breaks your face into a smile. Enjoy an ice cream cone or cookie while rocking on shaded front porch. Or bag up a few variations of fudge and take them home to family and friends. Their store sells a bit of everything. Take home a T-Shirt to hear wonderful comments when you wear it. Shop for candies, hot sauces, moonshine jelly and Amish jellies as well.
