This was the only way we could get down to the falls from where we were parked; the other option would've been a half-hour (one way, so an hour total) walk completely around the hill. I guess installing a set of stairs down would've been too much to ask? The views were nice, but I also liked having that $10... More

This attraction is completely over priced but if you are Table Rock and you are staying at the Embassy Suites or in that vicinity, this is a wonderful time and muscle saver.

This used to be included in the adventure pass and has since become a stand alone attraction. The right not only saves you the time and energy of walking up the huge hill but provides a spectacular view of the falls and beyond.

It's nice to ride it up the hill after a full day of walking in the falls otherwise you can save a little buck ($7) walking up the hill going to fallsview casino and have some lunch or dinner at the buffet place. It's more convenient for people who have a hard time walking up and down the hills.

Expensive and was not impressed for the so short ride over the water and did not think it worth the money........ Would not go back.

Great vantage point, quick ride down from the Fallsview Casino. Purchased the 24 hour pass, and used it a total of three times. I estimate we saved 15 minutes walking time for each time we used the incline.

Not too fancy but enjoyable and expeditious. Easy access from the Marriott & Embassy Suites, and saved time!

Walk from Rainbow Bridge (Canadian side) thru beautiful park filled with flowers, enjoy the falls, then for $2.50 a person the incline will lift you up to Falls View Rd! 'Nuff Said!
