Most enjoyable to acend the mountain. Beautiful view. A bit pricey since we had to pay for parking too.

Our grandchildren would ride this up or down daily if possible. Sorta weird at first being so straight up and straight down. But views and sights are great. Food a little pricey unless you are starving!!! Well priced souvenirs top and bottom. You don't want to visit Chattanooga and not put this on your list of DONE visits!

Nice piece of history. But just a ride up and down a mountain. There are a few nice places to eat at the bottom.

If you have a choice, please do not do try to experience this in the summer. We stopped off in Chatanooga on the way to Asheville and thought we would see the main attractions. It was way too hot and very humid (even in the morning), there is no air on the train and the windows are permanently closed...so very... More

The ride on the incline is interesting and fun. The view at the top is great. I'm a machinery buff, so I found the engineering aspect very interesting. We didn't go to the war reenactment 3 blocks away from the Upper Station, so our visit ran about an hour.

If you're visiting the area I would suggest doing it once, but I think the experience would be better when it's fall with less leaves on the trees. The view wasn't "all that" from the train. There best views and experience for me was at Rock City.

Steepest incline IN THE WORLD! You have to go do this! It was a hoot! it was a bit pricy. 30.00 for 2 tickets. But the experience was worth it!

The train ride is okay, takes about 10 minutes to get to the top. The view isn't all that great while on the train, once at the top you can go to the observation deck and the view is amazing. We thought the incline railway would bring us to Rock city, but we were informed that we had to drive... More

Incline railways are fun to ride. This one is one of the best. The incline is the steepest in the country, if not the world, you get wonderful views, and it's fun to ride. You will get a narrative while riding about what is happening once you get to the top of the mountain. Cost is $15 for round trip.... More

This was my first time on the Incline Railway and I loved it! If you are terrified of heights this ride is not for you! We went on a Saturday morning before 10:00 and we didn't have to wait long at all. The only negative I have to say about it was the women's restroom at the bottom was really... More
