It's well worth the few bucks it costs to take the ride and see the views. There's a nice store at the top and you might see some bears during the trip.

Yea, okay - maybe that's to be expected...but how cool is that? He was eating peanuts that people dropped when feeding the chipmunks. So, my kids named him Peanut. Great family memories!

A very small Swiss-made tramway to the top of Prospect Mountain and in summer, there can be lines - but they move along 8-12 at a time. Well worth the trip for the views of the Estes Valley. Hiking to the very top of the mountain is available - and there is a snack bar that serves very good pie... More

Had to check this out just to see the hotel from the shining. It was very big, well maintained and the scenery was breathtaking. I did not want to leave! Colorado is the best place to visit hands down

If you've spent any time IN RMNP this could be a bit of a letdown, but for non-hikers or people in your group that just want to say they have been to the top of the mountain without a whole lot of effort, it's a fun little diversion.

We went on an unplanned excursion to Estes Park for the day and we were disappointed to discover the attraction was closed for the season. We are not from Colorado, we were just in the state for a family event. The prices are their website are fair, I think. I bet the views are spectacular from the top. The weather... More

You get what you pay for. Its somewhat bottlenecked on quantities of the people that can go out. Their operations ran well and it was a great cost effective way to see the town!

This is an easy way to get some folks who may struggle with the climbs in the parks. The view is nice, the area is fairly easy to walk and there is a little snack bar to enjoy a coffee while viewing.
