Interesting and cool little elevator, you pay I think $5 when you reach the top. They also where able to tell us about the city and other things to do while we were there. Pretty fun!

What a fun outing. Cheap, interesting and wonderful view of the river. The rail car has such an interesting story behind it. Went in the evening, then enjoyed ice cream at a shop not too far from the cable car house. A must see when in Downtown Dubuque!

One of the things that you have to visit and ride when you go to Dubuque. Not expensive, and the ride starts from the bottom only ( not sure ) the view from the top is great.

A must if you are in the area. Only $3 round trip per person and you get a fun ride to the top. Plus a great view from the observation deck.

I would recommend this if you are in the downtown Dubuque area. It is only $3 round trip and takes 3-5 minutes each way. One of the elevator operators was very knowledgeable about Dubuque history, and was very friendly. A unique experience.
