“If it were open...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Apparently this short funivia is always closed for repairs, as it was when I was there. Cool history and a nice look, but...get it together!

“Not very impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

If you've not seen a funicular railway before it's worth a short detour but it's not very long at all. It also was closed for work when we visited so unable to say if the ride is anything to bother with.

“Nice little ride on an antique railway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

$0.50 for a ride on the shortest railway? Absolutely! It's adorable- Short and sweet;) We rode it to the top and walked over to the Disney Concert Hall, then back to the little park with 'Tom's bench'- someone was sitting on it, but the view was nice anyways...

“It was not working sign said being tested”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

I enjoy a funicular. This one was not running. The sign that was posted was January 2014 - testing. It is a short walk from the Disney Hall...so an easy walk. Will check again next time I am in LA>
