Long line, long wait, not a whole lot of thrill. But that being said, why not take this incline up to see the top of Mt. Washington? I would do it the same way even though I only gave this a fair rating of three stars. If you are paying with credit card, and live in canada (so your credit... More

Free guided tour of the gear room to see how these cars go up and down. If you go bring cash and small bills. They only take small bills. $2.50 for adults one... More

The incline is a unique experience for Pittsburgh. Great to catch for games but also great for the views. If you've never been to Pittsburgh you have to check out the incline--especially at night when the view of the city and the point are the best!

I've ridden this many many times and it's always a cool time as you watch the roads below you as you approach Mt. Washington or the river below you as you go back down to Station Square. The Incline is a must ride when you visit our city.

Went to check the incline out to see what it was like and was very unimpressed. Unless you love or like to eat at the top of the incline it really is not for people out of town. Giving that it is really old I do recommend checking it out cause at the top is a small museum of the... More

A ride on the Duquesne Incline provides a unique sightseeing experience along with a great view of Point State Park. You'll end up on Grandview Ave on Mt. Washington with an opportunity to visit a number of excellent restaurants with an equally great view of Pittsburgh.

This is always a must visit for any out of town guests. The kids love it, the adults appreciate the view.

The incline is a short trip up Mount Washington. The view is superb .the station has some interesting facts on the walls .If you continue up the hill on the sidewalk you will come to a statue of George Washington and the Indian Chief but other then that not to much to do

Very disappointed . It states inside the pamphlet that parking is free at lower station on Carson St. After pulling my vehicle in the dirt parking lot there were huge potholes almost the size of my car a very horrible parking lot. Low maintance. We see signs stating you have to pay to park. Fee $5 for 0-2 hours when... More
