“Give yourself a lift.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Another great, unique experience. This once was the way horses and wagons made it up to the top of the mountain. Today it's how your spirits can get there!

“Car with a view”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Tried this route up Mt Washington as we had parked at the Station garage and was closer than the Dusquesne. Authentic transport run by the coal authority but staff not particularly friendly or helpful. Nice views from the top especially the viewing gallery area. Short walk to local shops and cafes. Would go back again at night.

“Neat ride on an original cable car”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This early transportation option still gets a good workout all day long. It is a testament to its design, construction and maintenance. Highly recommend it for a view of the city and rivers.

“Fun”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

A nice ride and really fun for kids
The exhibit at the top is very interesting
Not a lot to do on the streets at the top unless you walk around

“Visitor - do it”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

On a clear day this is a great way to sit and see a splendid view of the city. Price is inexpensive and the experience is worth it. Give it a try. While at the top there is a lookout deck close by and the little restaurants and pubs at the top are fun.
