The Inclined Plane is at the core of J-town's flood history and a centerpiece experience.

“The View, and I don't mean that stinking TV show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

The view takes your breath away. To think of what the people in the 1800's flood had to go through, I can't imagine and neither will you.

“Great fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

After visiting the Johnstown Flood Museum, we found our way to the incline and easily found free parking. We have ridden many inclines and this is one of the best. It didn't hurt that it took us to the City View Restaurant either! The Museum, Incline and Restaurant are all must dos in Johnstown!

“Spectacular view of the city and valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

It's hard to describe the beauty of the rolling hills and ravined river valleys of Western Pennsylvania, but the view of Johnstown from the top of the Inclined Plane is magnificent! And you can go up and down on their every-15-minute schedule very conveniently.
