“World's shortest railway”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

A very short trip on a historic funicular in downtown LA for the cost of 2 quarters is a wonderful way to visit downtown LA.

“Angel's Flight”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

For someone growing up in the Greater LA area (but having lived in LV for the past 20 yrs), it was amazing that I had never experienced this before.

Vintage cars, wooden seats set at an angle to match the steep climb - where can you get a thrill for 50 cents these days? Just perfect. Kudos to L.A. for maintaining this historic part of the city.

A unique experience for $.50 each way. 50% discount with a metrolink ticket. A short ride but fun. Bunker Hill very nice.

“Short and sweet ride”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We were walking up third street to get back to our hotel, and realised it went into a tunnel and we couldn't walk through. Then we came across the Angel's Flight Railway. It is a short ride to the top, and costs 50 cents for a one way ride. It is a cute quaint trolley car, and at the top is a nice garden area. It saved us a long walk around, and was a bit of fun. Good picture opportunity as well. An unexpected surprise!

“Great little cable car”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Located conveniently by the subway entrance/exit. A ride to the top costs 25c. There's not much up the top, but perhaps relax for a bit among the gardens & pond. We walked back down the steps to take photos of the car.
