I have taken a trip on the tram 3 times and each time is enjoyable and different. The scenery always changes based on the clouds and weather. Each time I see something new that I never recognized before! This is the perfect place to take friends/family who are in town visiting for the first time. Advice, get there early! The... More

What a blast of wind up top. We had a great time. Very informative employees, nice little gift shop. The view was amazing, couldn't asked for more. Only $8 per person.

Awesome view from all angles. Seeing México was breathtaking. So cool to be so close. Next time will hike the trails on the way up.

Run by the State Parks the Tram ride is well worth the $8 per adult ticket. At the top you can see El Paso, Mexico, New Mexico. It's about a 4 minute ride. The views are spectacular.

It's a short tram ride and a nice little trip in a city with not a whole lot to offer visitors. At the top are many radio and t.v. transmitters — I happen to be into that as a former radio broadcaster, but if you are not, there's the view of El Paso and Mexico. There's a tiny gift shop... More

The first time I was in El Paso, it was rainy the entire stay and the tramway was closed. This trip, the weather was nice, so we were excited to visit. The drive up to the parking area was quick and easy - very near a major highway. Just be sure to use low gear on the way back down!... More

Short smooth ride to the top. The vista was spectacular. View through the telescope was informative and gave us a good perspective of the surrounding area. The wait was a little longer than expected but it was a pleasant day!
