The ride is very short, a $8.00 per person, if your like to use the trails you can however you will need... More

If you want to impress your date or you have family visiting from out of town, this is where you would take them. I only give it 4 stars because you can get better views free of charge by driving up to scenic drive. All in all this is a great experience that everyone should do at least once in... More

This was a fun time, but the line to the tram was long and we waited in the hot sun for like 30 minutes. In addition the high altitude made m nauseous. Views were spectacular though.

One of the most little known "Must Do's" in the city. A great view of the local area including Mexico.

Upon arriving, we discovered a sign at the ticket booth that the area they take you to exceeds the health safety for radio and microwave transmissions and may cause you harm. On another sign in smaller print, it advised you not to take the tramway if you have a pacemaker because of the powerful microwave transmissions at the top. We... More

Mr. Wyler donated this tram to the State of TX. On top of the mountain is the local television's antenna. From the top of the tram you can see New Mexico, Texas, and Juarez, three states located in two countries. Sometimes you will see deer in the park below the moving tram. Great experience.
