My husband and I visited the city for a long weekend in November of 2015 and this is a great way to see the city. Beautiful view at the top! I highly recommend!

We wanted to see the city from the top of the mountain and this was a great way to do it. I understand that the incline was first built over 100 years ago. The best view is toward the bottom, looking down on the city.

Oddly, this was my first trip on the incline. The kids loved it and enjoyed the view of the city. There are little Windows where you can watch underneath the incline to see how it works - our six year old loved it. There is a little gift shop at the top and little penny making machines that the kids... More

The ride on the incline is not for the faint of heart! If you can handle the ride, it is a beautiful view at the top and well worth the view bucks you spend for parking and the incline ride. We didn't see much to do at the top of the incline unless you wanted a place to eat.

My husband and I walked to the incline and I was so excited for him to see the city on the way up. When we arrived at the bottom we realized we needed exact change. Maybe I should have known that before we arrived but I didn't,I guess that's my fault, we never carry cash. My husband nicely asked if... More

We took the ride up and back with a slew of kids, they enjoyed it. Because it was a Holiday time, the lines were long and crowded but the wait was not too bad. Kids loved looking at the gears and being "high up". It is a quick trip but something you would not get to do other places... worth... More

We ride this incline every time we visit Pittsburgh. It's always fun. There are little shops up top and great views of the city from the ledge, great for taking pictures. The ride is inexpensive, however it only accepts coin. So you need to exchange your bills for $1 coins and have quarters.

Duquesne gives an awesome view of the beautiful city of Pittsburg. Must take the ride of cable car from the lower level to the incline. Max 1 hour is enough to spend good time and good view of the city.

I recently moved here and did the usual tourist things, decided to take a trip up the incline and it was worth the wait to go up. Fantastic views of the city from the top and got a lot of pictures of the city to share on Facebook
