Reviewed 11 January 2012

You can't take this ride just anywhere! Have rode it numerous times over the years and still makes my stomach flip!- Don't miss it and get out and walk around the upper station- a true slice of Chattanooga!

“FUN FUN FUN”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

The ride in the Inclined Railway is a lot of fun! You can see the 7 states from the top where the rail ends. The scenery of Chattanooga and surrounding places is awesome!

“Really cool but don't go in the summer.”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

Very pretty ride up the mountain worth walking around and shopping before going down but in the summer it's very hot and it does take a while to get to the top and back in the heat.
I will take my grandson to ride it but it will be in cooler weather.

“The view is the best”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Anything up the mountain is worth it, gets a little crowded on weekends, be prepared for a wait in line.

“Going up?”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

The Incline goes straight up the face of lookout mountain. The two cars are connected by cables and pass each other midway up the mountain. The seats are reclined to make the steepest parts easy to sit through. At the top is an observation deck with viewers, snack and gift shops. At the bottom is another gift shop. This locale is great for a family trip or a romantic, smooth and quiet ride to the top of the mountain and back.
