A quick way with a reasonable ticket price to go up the hill to downtown (uptown) from the Falls and Table Rock Center. Otherwise travelers will need to walk up the steep hill (if one can find the way). The view is spectacular and it...More

This is a very reasonably priced ride up the mountain plus you get a great view of the falls. I would recommend it to everyone, especially those who have never ridden an incline.

First let me say we had Niagara passes for 2 days (or 48 hours) and this was included. So unlimited use of the incline railway. But really, I would have paid to have this anyway. Super easy and saved a ton of walking for us....More

At only 2.50 ish per ticket, especially after a long day of walking at clifton hill, going up is much better this way to get back to your hotel. Otherwise, not an essential part of a trip.

Not a bad way to save energy, with a view as an added bonus. Going up, or down this is a Good price point <$3. If you are staying in the hotel, get the day pass - then ride all day. For us it was...More

Around 4-5 min or less. Take your time and enjoy the view it will take you longer.
