“Short, cheap and fun!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Was the only person on it when I went - was a bit concerned there didn't even seem to be a driver! Rickety ride up the slope but fun to do it and only costs 25c if you have a TAP card.

Nice wee park waiting for you at the top as well and the area has free wi-fi which is always helpful for a tourist!

“Piece of history”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have not been her lately but I rode the original Angel's Flight as a child. It 's a part of LA history. Some good eateries at the top of the hill but nothing to go out of your way for.

“Cool historic short ride !”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Not many historic places in LA but this one is one cool one.
The railway, railway accesses and railway carts are well maintained.
Each ride cost 50 cents and it's fun to do it... just for doing it.
What makes it particular is that it is located right in the middle of modern downown LA.
Take the ride going or returning from the Wells Fargo Museum which is very close (and also worth a visit).

“A Bit of History”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

LA is a bit scarce on historical buildings and preservation. This is a small bit of LA Past that is part of a great walking tour of downtown LA. There are some cool buildings and a great market. Plus The Music Center and Opers.

“Goes the distance of a block. Historic landmark in L.A.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is just "ok" because it's not really leading you anywhere special, just from the base of one street to another. L.A. can do better and it does.
