One of the good attractions in El Paso - I usually take out of town company to this place! You can see the land forever! Three states and two countries! Kids usually love the ride up and down! Make sure to check times and availability first as they sometimes close due to weather.

We have been here several times. We take friends and family when they visit. The rides up and down are short, so if you are afraid of riding it, the ride isn't long! Everyone on staff is extremely nice and knowledgable.

Great Views of El Paso. Fun tram ride up. If entertaining out of two guests I would highly recommend this attraction as a must. Good for Romantic Evenings. The best time of year to go is in the late fall because although it can get cold, you can watch a sunset up top and stay to see the stars come... More

Worth a visit to get a good sense of geography of the area. Took my son and his girlfriend to the top and enjoyed the view of Texas,New Mexico and Mexico.

If you have 1 hour or so of time and love vantage point view, then this is it. Driving up to the ticketing counter is easy. Tram journey to the peak is fast but smooth. The view on top is magnificient. Dont worry if you forget to bring any water or cap as there is a gift shop at the... More

It is a beautiful view. See if you can spot all the sheds used for over night emergencies. They're sand colored. This Mountain is connected to the San Andreas fault and grows every year. As the plates beneath us shift our Mountain Grows. There should be plates explaining the views and the historic meaning of the area. Sadly there isn't.... More

On of those things you got to do if it is your first time in El Paso. Parking can be limited....I had to wait for a car to leave in order to park since the lot was full. That also meant about a 1 hour wait to ride up as the tram car only holds 6-7 folks. But no wait... More

At the top of this place, you can actually see two countries and three states. What an amazing place to be during a sunset.

The line was short when we went. It was about $8 pp. They take 6-8 people up per tram at a time. The ride up was beautiful and the ranger that rode with us was friendly and funny. At the top, the views were spectacular. There is a gift store with plenty of small items you can buy for friends... More
