You will be standing up for 20 minutes with other people in a gondola with full windows. You can stay up at the top for as long as you like, but the temperature will be 20 degrees colder at the top and so bring a jacket and something to cover your head and hair. It's very windy.

We were only stopping for a single night in Albuquerque, but this was the one attraction we made time to see. Thanks to our Sat Nav we found the place ok. Costs a dollar to enter the grounds and a further 20 per person to go up in the cable car. Seemed to be a trip up every 20 minutes... More

The tram ride to the top is exciting, the view from the top is amazing. If you plan to hike down, you must come prepared, it is not a "walk", takes several hours and you need supplies.

What an exciting ride! If you have a fear of heights you should probably avoid this tram. It's a long ride to the top and the distance between the bottom of the tram and the ground below could hold a building as tall as the Empire State Building.

Every moment of this tram ride was fun and the sights were beautiful. I felt safe and didn't worry about the height. When you arrive at the peak the information given there along with descriptions of the area is very helpful. It was a highlight of my Albuquerque visit.

This was probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever had the privilege of seeing! If you ever find yourself in Albuquerque, NM, I highly recommend that you take the trip to the tram. Mind blowing.

Classic Abq activity. Great views all around and it's fun to see the Sandias up close. I recommend coming down the mountain at sunset.
