The entrance for this is right by the Radisson and Embassy Suites; we took a nice long walk all around the Falls area with a steep incline until we found out about this little gem. At 2.75 a ride it isn't cheap but it's well worth it to save time.

My husband and I were at the Table Rock viewing area of the Falls and wanted to get up to the commercial district. The Incline Railway was the perfect solution and a very inexpensive one. For $4 US, we rode in comfort and had a spectacular view of both the American and Canadian falls. The only complaint was that finding... More

Nice to do not a must though. Cost is 2.75 one way or 5.50 for two ways per person. The ride is nice as you can see the falls however lasts about 30 seconds. Takes you to the visitor center where can can do lots of things such as purchase tickets for attractions, souvenirs, coffee, tablerock

Near the Canadian falls the terrain is one big hill. After walking all day this Falls Incline Railway is a blessing. Cost is Two Seventy Five Canadian one way, two way are available for a small savings. Welcomed rest after a long day of walking, enjoy the view.

The Incline was a crosswalk away from our hotel. It was a fast and easy way to get to from the hotel area to the ground level directly outside the falls welcome center. And, there were excellent views! (Note: You might consider buying a day pass.)

This added greatly to our trip having the ability to cut our time in half using the lift to get up down. Take advantage of this .

It is hard to believe that you are about to ride a tram down a very steep hill, but it is smooth and incredibly convenient if you are staying in one of the Fallsview hotels.

Easiest way up the hill after walking down from the Marriott. We walked down to the parks to see the falls from the Fallsview Marriott. Getting back up the hill isn't quite so easy so we took this cheap and easy train. They took both Canadian and US dollars.

This was included in our Adventure Pass and was a great way to get down to the Table Rock area. Since we were staying at the Embassy Suites, it was very convenient because there is an entry to the railway directly from the hotel. After walking over to the NY side of the falls and exploring all day, it was... More
