An awesome experience and a must do if in the area. The ride takes some time and allows plenty of time to admire the impressive views on the way up/down. The view from the top is nothing short of amazing - you can see for miles. We booked tickets in advance and it all went smoothly and quickly with no... More

We were only in ABQ for two days and decided to go to Santa Fe on the first day, the second day was Tuesday, and luckily we checked on line for opening time to find it's closed Tuesday mornings and doesn't open until 5pm. Good job we checked! It gave us time to do other things instead (ABQ Trolley tour... More

The wait time could be exhausting during peak days, but the view is worth it. Temperature at top can be pretty low (sunny day at base station and snow at top); it's better to carry some warm clothes.

The tram is a wonderful experience. The knowledgeable guides on the tram provide lots of interesting information. Once at the top there is a small but informative visitors area - I believe this area is under renovation at the moment to be completed the end of May. You can hike, enjoy lunch or dinner with a wonderful view of the... More

I took eight college friends from back east on the tram and all said it was a major highlight of their visit. The twenty minute ride is done in comfort and the slight movement when going over the tower posts makes you pause for a moment. The views are breathtaking. The top waiting station is being rebuilt and should be... More

If you like mountain tops, this is the spot. There are 2 restaurants that are just OK. Go early because there are crowds on the weekends.

The world's longest tram is an exciting way to show visitors Albuquerque from the top of the mountain. Take the tram up, take a hike, have dinner and then ride down watching the twinkling lights of Albuquerque.

I am afraid of heights, but riding the tram to the top of the peak is spectacular. The ride is so well coordinated and awesome to see. The staff on each tram is so informed about the the tram ride. It is very hard to describe the beauty of God that you will see on your ride to top of... More

I forgot of how much open land that we still have in Albuquerque NM. You get that view from the top of the Tramway

Not only do you have a view of the beautiful city of Albuquerque, but you also get to view close-up the mountains. The ragged rocks, the beautiful trees, the mountain goats and if you look very closely you can see the wreckage of an old TWA wreckage down deep in the valley which they were unable to remove.
