“Gotta ride it.”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I won't spend much time because this is a must do Pburgh attraction. Simply put, the tram car inside takes you back to the past with beautiful wood paneling and the view projects you into the future of Pburgh with beautiful views of the city. A must see!

Great view of Pittsburgh. But, bring exact change, and they don't take credit cards.

“Great views”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

For just a dollar you can rude up to Mt. Washington for the best view of Pittsburgh. Also some good restaurants at the top. Great place to watch fireworks.

“Adventurous way to see the most amazing view!”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

If you're visiting do this - if you live here and have visitors - do this. It's inexpensive, fun, a little thrilling, doesn't take all day, and shows off our beautiful city to its best advantage. It's history, and it's haunted! It is still used by commuters! Fun for everyone.
