The incline railroad is 1 part of 3 great attractions, which include lookout mountain and Ruby Falls. See all 3 on a combo ticket, save money and see 3 great attractions. Don't miss the fort at the top when you get off the incline railroad. It was very interesting to learn about the history of the fighting that took place.

Here's the truth... If you're already up on Lookout Mountain, and you have already or plan to take in Ruby Falls and Rock City, then be sure to make time for the Incline too... Not only is the ride mind-bending (a 72.7% grade for crying out loud), but it offers a neat little bit of history on the way down... More

Not sure one can truly say they have visited Chattanooga until they see the battlefields, stroll the waterfront, walk on the cliff's edge at Point Park, and, ride on the incline railway. Nice thing is that you can do two of the four by taking the incline to the top of Lookout Mountain then walk to Point Park to see... More

I was in Chattanooga for a day and decided to take a tide on the incline railway. I loved the entire experience. They conduct it really well and it is a very gentle ride. You climb rapidly and the views from the top are amazing!!!

It is the best way to view the city. Provides a wonderful view of the city. Make sure you go to the very top of the building!! The incline takes about 15-20 minutes up the mountain and you can stay as long as you like and walk around, or come right back down after 20 mins or so. Gift shop... More

Another of my late, late review! We were in Chattanooga for one night so we couldn't do much. We could only do one attraction and we chose the incline railway and lookout mountain out of the list of attractions. We understand a combo ticket can be purchased for Rock City and Ruby Falls. The Incline Railway is a ride up... More

But my kids love it!! I would never do it again. I had the feeling I was dangling from the side I a mountain by a string. I couldn't imagine how this was done way back when. I loved and hated it all at the same time. You have to at least try it once.

We experienced this right before we went to Ruby Falls which is right next door and it was fun! I was a little scared with how steep it was but it was for sure worth the adventure!

It was something you should see at least one time. We did and are really glad we did. It's a little expensive but for the one timeit was fine and we have done it before at other places. like the Village at Stone Mountain, Georgia. To visit the Village was slightly high but for a one time experience we did... More
