We took the ride up and back with a slew of kids, they enjoyed it. Because it was a Holiday time, the lines were long and crowded but the wait was not too bad. Kids loved looking at the gears and being "high up". It is a quick trip but something you would not get to do other places... worth... More

We ride this incline every time we visit Pittsburgh. It's always fun. There are little shops up top and great views of the city from the ledge, great for taking pictures. The ride is inexpensive, however it only accepts coin. So you need to exchange your bills for $1 coins and have quarters.

Duquesne gives an awesome view of the beautiful city of Pittsburg. Must take the ride of cable car from the lower level to the incline. Max 1 hour is enough to spend good time and good view of the city.

I recently moved here and did the usual tourist things, decided to take a trip up the incline and it was worth the wait to go up. Fantastic views of the city from the top and got a lot of pictures of the city to share on Facebook

This is a must for tourists visiting Pittsburgh! There is paid parking below the incline. Make sure you display your receipt on the dashboard of your car. There are only port-a-pottys. The ride is $2.50 per adult one way and $1.25 for kids above 5. Seniors ride for free with identification. The best views are in the night. The whole... More

I can't wrap my mind around being a coal miner. What a dangerous job. I would be terrified. Reading all the pictures of Pittsburgh history was so interesting. Riding the incline was fun. The exit door on the cab car got stuck, but thank god for hammers. Couple hits & we were out. Parking & climbing stairs was crazy but... More

The Duquesne Incline, I think is something Pittsburgh residents pass by from time to time and take it for granted, but it isn't something which is seen and ridden every day in other cities, but it is here! It is a very convenient way for anyone (especially senior citizens, who can ride free) can take advantage of traveling from Mt.... More
