We took our nieces and nephews on this and they loved it, and you have a great view of the city! Reasonably priced too!

There's lots of history in this small area and this attraction gives you a full appreciation for what happened. The ride is also still functional today and the view was the city from above is great. We enjoyed a nice dinner while absorbing history.

OK, they probably charge too much for such a fleeting experience, but where else can you have wooden chocks placed under the wheels of your car before the cantilever system takes you and your car swiftly to the top of the hill? It is the steepest incline in the world, and the feeling is very cool as you ride up, very cool indeed.

Many years ago, when I was a kid, my brother, alcoholic grandfather, and I urinated over the hill from an inclined plane car in motion. At night. Now that was an experience with a capital "E." :)

After you visit national park and Johnstown flood museum, take a rid e on the Incline Plane to see the valleyt from the top of the hill. Imagin a wall of water rushing down the valley in 1889, or lesser floods more recently, even in 1976!

A quick trip and pleasant view of downtown Johnstown. Feel the power and speed, then see the cable and machinery that pull you up while at the top
