New Cage Setup

So my parents have had me slightly downgrade my cage once again saying that the minimum cage will have to do and that my other cage (before we changed it a 2x5 with 1x2 loft). I was very upset that I had to go to a 2x3 cand c cage and I could tell me piggies weren't exactly fans either. So I decided to make a loft into a partial second story. I say partial because instead of it being the full 2x3, a 1/2 x2 area is open so I can reach the bottom level to clean. They are happier and my parents are perfectly fine with this setup (I hope to re-expand to a good 3x8 once I move out though). I had to set up a new ramp design were it enters from underneath the second story rather than the side like it did with the loft so they'd have the extra room I was hoping for. They do cross the ramp sometimes but usually just sit their squeaking until I pick them up and move them to the other level. This is about day 4 of this setup and they still dislike the ramp. Is there anyway I can encourage them to use the ramp? Most of their hides and their veggie bowls are up top and the bottom is empty for them to run except a pellet bowl and a litter box.

And got the T-shirt

Put the pigs up top and the food at the bottom, with bits of food down the ramp. They'll got down before they'll go up. Once they're coming down reliably, then reverse the process.
