Their Website shows it is open, but when we got there it was closed down for the season. Unfortunately when I went back and looked the website home page was dated 2013, not 2016.

This is a local Johnstown attraction. We took our grandchildren on it in December. The grandchildren enjoyed the view of Johnstown and trying to find our house from the top of the inclined plane.

This is a fun and inexpensive way to see the city. We have gone up and down the incline each time we are in the city.

Great view from the top! Restaurant has good food. Store is a little junky. Bring quarters for viewing machine. Be sure to walk the steps up to the flag at the top.

We went to this inclined plane and had a great time and really enjoyed the ride but found out that the restaurant was extremely pricey and the food was mediocre quality

Went with my childs class trip and went up in the Incline. I don't like heights and keep thinking it is going to fall off the tracks, but it didn't. The kids enjoyed it. Would do it again.
