For £20 round trip for an adult ticket is very reasonable and the tram operates gives a really interesting tour of the local landscape and history of the tram system. The views are incredible of both New Mexico and the mountain region. For walkers, make sure you have enough water and a sweatshirt is always worth bringing as the temperature... More

We planned a trip to Albuquerque in April 2014 to find some sunshine. Most of the time we had wonderful weather. We planned to ride the tram to the top and have dinner as we watched the sunset. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and the tram was closed. We returned the next day, just for a ride to the top... More

It costs us $52 for two adults and one child to ride the tramway. While it was a little overpriced, it was worth it. The views from the tram are spectacular as well as the views from the top of the mountain. Even the view from the parking lot is pretty amazing. While riding the tram, we got to see... More

The view is amazing and the travel til the top is funny. I went yesterday e I'm flabbergasted. It's very high, but it really worth the 20 bucks.

great informative trip to the top. Look out for bears some have been seen. A great feed and beer at the top after a long walk or short. Bring your runners or skies. A little snow in autum (fall)or winter. Great view.

Our family of 4 had been looking at Sandia from afar for 4 days before we got the chance to go up the 10,000 feet on the tram. We went on a Thursday, late morning, and had no wait at all. I am not crazy about heights but this was a wonderful experience - so much to take in with... More

I loved going up to the top of the Sandia. You do get put in this glass box with about 49 others and are standing the whole way to the top, but once you get there it is amazing. There is so much to see from both sides! My kids have actually climbed the trails (16 miles in one day).... More

The tram was a fun ride for my family and me. We were able to see the entire area while hearing about how the tram was assembled and other interesting facts about the surrounding area.
