This remarkable engineering work must be experienced to be fully appreciated. It is a man-made wonder and a unique departure from the ordinary experiences of driving a car. I urge every motorist to give it a go.

Wife is usually afraid of heights, but she was ok looking out the front of the car as we went down then back up. The car can handle up to two cars at a time. Good view of Johnstown from the top.
