We arrived mid morning on a saturday and had a very short wait. This is an operating commuting vehicle that is also an antique, so imagine you have gone through time. It gives an excellent view of the city, especially at the top outside the station. Do plan on climbing steps if you arrive at the lower station. Inexpensive for... More

I spent the long weekend, exploring the Pittsburg area, and nothing was quite as much fun, as traveling at such an astonishing Incline, up from the river - level, to the high bluff, overlooding the 3-rivers confluence and the Island, itself, below me. I would much rather take the incline, than drive, and drive, and drive up the down, down... More

This was cool, not very expensive and is an easy way to get a great view of the city. We took incline up and ate lunch at a spot overlooking the city.

This is a fantastic location to see and photograph the city. Parking at the bottom was plentiful... the incline ride was fun and inexpensive... the view from the top should be seen with early morning light, and again in late afternoon, and yet again at night with the lights. Beautiful!!!

Nice historical museum at the incline. Lots of parking, paying for parking was a challenge. Lots of steps to climb to get to the carts. Cash only and exact change (change machine available). Once your at the top there isn't really anything to do except eat at expensive restaurants or just look at scenery. Not really kid friendly at the... More

Having been on a couple of these in the UK and one in Hong Kong, this is ok but a bit shaky and the equipment and carriages look a bit dilapidated. My daughter, who is an ingineer, was a bit concerned but assured us that there would be stringent safety checks and fair safe breaking mechanism. Not sure I would... More

The incline is a sight to see and definitely ride at least once, round trip of course, you don't want to try to hike Mt. Washington. It is a very unique way to connect Mt Washington to Station Square..it is a must do!

It's a device from the past that takes you up from the river to one of the best views of downtown Pittsburgh! If the lines are too long and you've got a car, it's worth taking the scenic route to get to the top for the view.

Since this is on a list of must do's I read somewhere we did it. The ride itself is only minutes, the waiting in line to get up and back down takes much longer. But its cute and would recommend if you're looking for a short excursion.
