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

Well worth the $8. Amazing views at top of Ranger Peak. You can stay as long as you want until park closes. The tramway ride itself is great. May lookmterrifying, but it's not. Very nice & steady as you ascend/descend. The views of El Paso & Ciudad ajuarez are beautiful. It gets cold & windy up there, so dress appropriately.... More

This was a nice side attraction. The view is gorgeous from the top. Bring a coat though because its much colder at the top and you will be waiting in a line for awhile to get back down.

There's not much to this. The gift shop is tiny and there isn't much but the view is great. You can not only view El Paso but Juarez, Mexico as well.

I didn't know about this tramway until we were driving to go see other places. I generally like high place, so I can't help myself for going up on a tower or a tram somewhere in the world everytime I see them. I didn't read the review before and just decided to head out first thing in the morning. Looked... More
