“Always Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Duquesne Include is a must for anyone visiting Pittsburgh. Has an observation deck with great views. I saw a tour group (bus?) so it must be on a tour...should anyone be interested.

“Awesome City View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The fee is $5.00 roundtrip, but the view is worth it on a nice day. The Pittsburgh skyline is beautiful and there is nice lookout at the top where you can take pictures. Don't expect to see much else at the top, it is mainly residential and a few restaurants. But it is a unique experience for tourists.

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The ride up the incline is nice, but the view is incredible. I went at night and was amazed by the city's lights. You can also walk a bit and see another great view if the Duquesne platform is crowded.

“Great view, interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This ride has a wonderful view of Pittsburgh, and an interesting display of historical information at the top. There is also an opportunity to pay 50 cents to see the workings of the lift. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the cogs move and the wires work. We all enjoyed it. If you are a senior citizen and carry your medicare card the trip is free, other wise it is $2.50 each way, exact change only.

“fun ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

A roundtrip ride was a fun and quick diversion. It's also close to Station Square. It's cash only, and you need exact change.
