The ride on the incline is interesting. The view from the top is spectacular! But, as some of the other reviewers have said, there's not much else to do at the top after taking in the view. Also, a warning to those with any trouble getting around: there are five flights of stairs to climb to get from the parking... More

Once you get to the top the view of the city is amazing!! It was a nice cheap thing to do while you are in Pittsburgh to see the city from a different angle then you would normally see it!

We did not get to ride the incline, but viewed the building and the many artifacts and went outside to the viewing area. It is the BEST view of Pittsburgh you can get without being in a helicopter, if you ask me. Check it out if you have time.

Rather uneventful. Not impressed. Long lines to get on, and not really that exceptional. Price was okay. Rode the Mo up and paid for the transfer for down.

The ride to the top gives you an amazing view of the city at a reasonable price ($2 to park; $5 per person to ride.) We paid the extra 50 cents each for the self-guided tour of the machine room-very interesting.

This was a cute little incline. It requires exact change so be prepared. They do have a coin machine but then you walk around with tons of coins in your pocket. We got right on and went up. At the top there is a little shop with souvenirs and ice cream & a overlook. All the restaurants on the top... More

Suggest doing this if you're ever in Pittsburgh! It was a beautiful view and was a quick trip up and down. Or you could stay uptop and go to resturants to kill some time(which also have beautiful views) 👍

Beautiful view, great photo op. Fun for kids, great to park in south side and take the incline to the great restaurants in Mount Washington
