Our team was in town for a hockey tournament, and coaches decided to take a team picture at the top. Stunning views from the top. Only bad thing was rude ticketing staff.

Our first time in a cable car and it won't be our last. I love this mode of transport and the views as you're going up are spectacular. I would definitely recommend this. We went up during the day and I would like to have seen it at night.

This was a very cool thing to do while in the area! Very nerve wracking for me as I'm scared to death of heights but it all turned out ok!

Go see the city. It's cheap, it's fun, and there's no better view without wings. A must visit in Pittsburgh.

We were told to go up via rail car at night and see all the city lights. Highly worth it. Once at the top there are some restaurants with great views! Fun to see.

I am a native of Pittsburgh so any time we have an out of town guest or if we are simply enjoying a night on the town in our beautiful city, the incline is a must! Take the incline from Station Square up to Mount Washington for a breathtaking view of Pittsburgh, especially at night. It is very romantic! If... More

Don't miss out on this quintessential part of Pittsburgh. Day or night, snow, rain, or sunshine- take the Incline.

The incline is fun. But it is sooo expensive. $5 total, to ride up and return, plus parking! Plus you have to pay with the exact cash -- no cc, no debit card, no change given. Once up the hill, the informational billboards are interesting, but limited. There is no one to answer questions. If you want to see how... More

Of course, we're interested in "rides" on vacation, but how about a thrill ride used daily by commuters to get to and from work in downtown Pittsburgh? The DUQESNE INCLINE fills that bill. We lived in Pittsburgh for thirty years, and this was a "must see" for every out of town visitor. You can enter from the top of Mount... More
