The park is only open on certain days so always check there site. The cost was $8 per adult and the ride to the top is about 4 minutes. You can also hike to the top but you will have to be an avid hiker as the path is narrow and loose footing. At the top there is a small... More

You can see a 360 degree area at he top that features a large platform and gift shop. Can see New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. The ride up is kind of short but what a view. There is alway a line to get on but it moves quickly..two trams.When we went it cost $8 each.

I had so much fun on the Wyler Aerial Tramway when I went to El Paso a while back to visit my son and his family. It was so fabulous to be riding that all the way up and down the mountain! It was the most glorious sight I had ever seen! I love the El Paso, Texas area. I... More

Lots of fun and great view. They could update the scenery markers...looks like a kid drew it. Get there early and be prepared to turn around and go home if the wind is too strong. Park rangers were so nice and helpful.

This is a fun way to spend an hour! It is very cheap and you get a great view of the city and of Mexico. We enjoyed just sitting on the bench and soaking up the sunshine. It is easy to find and well worth your time

It's small riding and limit the schedule. When you arrive up there and you will see the city in New Mexico, El Paso, and Juarez in Mexico. You will see the bright light line at the dusk time. It is the border line between the United States and Mexico. As compare to Tram in ABQ is longest ridding in the... More

They are only open on Fridays and Saturdays and limited time on Sundays. When traveling to El Paso check and recheck your open and closing times for everything. I thought places would be open later due to the heat in the summer, I was wrong. The "Visit El Paso" app is actually helpful for finding and giving directions.

While the line was not terribly long, however I did find our wait to be quite lengthy with no place to sit and nothing to look at, both on the way up and the way down. The view from the top was breathtaking, but otherwise, there was nothing much to do besides check out the very small store. It could... More
