I was a little apprehensive at first, but so glad I did this. The wait was not too bad and there is a little ice cream shop just before getting in line so that helps the wait too. The scenery from the train ride up and the top station was incredible. We could see a very long way. We enjoyed... More

The Incline railway was a great added bonus to our trip. We purchased the combination pack from the Southern Belle Riverboat cruise & it was a great value!

The wait to go up the mountain was reasonably short. The wait to come back down was about 40 minutes. It was a fun experience but the wait did take some enjoyment out of it. Little ones do get antsy standing in line for that amount of time,

The entire "riding" part lasts 10 minutes up and 10 minutes down. It's a cool experience and I'm glad I saw it, but I'd never be tempted to go again. It was very hot both on line and on the ride. They should invest money in some air conditioning. Also, the windows on the whole right side of the train... More

Loved the ride, had always been scared to ride the incline, but so glad I decided to try it, it was not scary at all, I enjoyed it very much, very informative! Only complaint No Air, and it was a record breaking hot day in Chattanooga Tennessee, but I recommend it highly!!!

I am terrified of heights and carnival rides, but I love riding the incline every time I go to Chattanooga. It's a quick and easy way to get from the ruby falls/rock city area of town to the battle grounds and historic area or town.

This was fun, but it is what it is.....historic. The car was not air conditioned, but it was neat to go on such a steep grade. Went as a kid and had fond memories.....

The top of the ride was ok, but we were told that when you get to the bottom take advantage of the many restaurants and the gift shop. What a joke, better off viewing the Mountain from the top instead of paying for the ride down the mountain. There was meter police constantly ticketing cars, whose meter expired. The restaurants...
