Everything about this experience was great! We had a short wait, probably because it was September. The ride up to the top was incredible and the tram operator was very knowledgeable and friendly. We spent some time walking the paths and were able to get beautiful pictures. Do not miss this tram ride when you are in Albuquerque.

Long and high and very scenic. Not for those scared of heights. Nice hiking around the peak.We did not eat on top but the views from the restaurants looked inviting.

This tram takes you up over 10,000 feet. One person in our group had difficulty breathing and had to be put on oxygen due to the altitude. Also, if you are plagued with vertigo, be careful. But the view is unreal. There are two restaurants located at the top or you can just wander and take pictures, then get on... More

It was pretty expensive for what it is. Liked that you could get a tram discount if you were going up for dinner.

Almost didn't do this because it looked a little scary...but am glad I did. Great view from the car and loved the atmosphere from atop the mountain. Had lunch at the restaurant too which was very nice. If you have time, you can take a little hike through the trails. Was neat how much cooler it was at the top... More

I have never ridden the Sandia Peak Tramway in Albuquerque, NM. After having dinner at Sandiagos at the base of the tram, we decided to take a ride. What a trip! Amazing is all I can really say. The people that worked there were fun and entertaining. We had an excellent time viewing the Rio Grande Valley! Loved it!

We really enjoyed our trip up the mountain on the world's longest tram It is inexpensive and has a fantastic view of Albuquerque. Once on top the mountain you can take a hike, but don't forget the altitude. We walked for an hour and that was plenty. Bring a bottle of water and your walking shoes. It is a little... More

The tram rises about 5000 feet to the top of Sandia Mtn. Adult fare is $20, tram closes about 8 pm. Spectacular views, interesting geology. Tak a jacket - windy and 20 deg cooler than valley at top

Not to be missed. A 15 minute ride on the tram was breathtaking. There are some easy and difficult trails. We did a crest and a nature trail. I would recommend these because they are not too difficult.
