  • I enjoyed my view from the train cart. It's absolutely breathtaking seeing all the beauty of nature around you. However, the train cart looked as if it hadn't been updated in decades. It was extremely hot and muggy. The tickets were decently priced. But, with the amount of income they're bringing in it would be nice for them to bring the train cart up to date. Maybe even add air conditioning/heat to make a comfortable ride in all elements. Overall, the view that you get to see is worth the money that you spend. It would have been such a more pleasant overall experience if was more updated and comfortable

  • This was enjoyable 1 mile ride straight up at a angle. Was a great view of Chattanooga. It’s $14 an adult. The only problem we had was when at the gift shop we bought a slice of fudge. Looks fresh. But they give it to you from another tray. Ask for it in the display if you do. All else was nice.

  • Really cool attraction and just thrilling enough. They aren't kidding when they say it's steep. Just when you think you're about done, that grade really kicks in and you finish the incline at what feels like almost straight up and down. Really fun time and the views are top notch! Would love to visit in the Fall.

  • Always a great experience. It is always something that we take out of town visitors to. It is such a great piece of Chattanooga history and a great engineering feat for the time that it was built. It is still well maintained and a great way to travel to the top of the mountain for the views and pictures without having to drive up the mountain roads. You can venture around up at the top and see some of the other venues while up there then take a leisure ride back down

  • Great experience very well laid out and can enjoy the views without being rushed! If you’re in Chattanooga and have two hours it is well worth seeing. It is very kid friendly and a lot of fun. The views are excellent. You can actually drive to both ends so if you just want the views drive up and have a look.
