There can be lines for this attraction at some times of the day. But when we visited it was just a few minutes before you were riding up the steep incline. Great view from the tram itself but even better once you are at the top. Lots of fun to see the town of Estes Park far below and to... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quick trip up the mountain. We did not think they would run the tram if it rained so we waited until it stopped. We only had about an hour on top so we could have timed it better. But you can feed the chipmunks up there and I'll better those are the best fed... More

The tram goes to the top of Prospect Mountain. You can see all of Estes Park from here. The ride was smooth and fast. We stayed on top for maybe 30 minutes before getting in line to come back down. A few of us were getting dizzy from the altitude. This was our first day in Colorado and we were... More

The tramway is very reasonably priced for a great view at the top! My 1 year old seemed to love the ride up and we even took the stroller (although I don't think it was necessary and it was hard to maneuver at the top when you're off the walkway). The views from the top were great (but they do... More

It was a nice tram trip up to the top of the mountain overlooking Estes Park. The grandchildren enjoyed feeding the chipmunks and it was a beautiful view for a very reasonable price.

Views from Tramway are nice; there is a shop at the upper exit point at Tramway and although it's OK, it could use a dose of cleanliness and updating. Tourist 'trappy'!

This was a great way to overlook the town. Kids loved climbing among the rocks as well as feeding the chipmunks.

What an amazing view. Lines weren't too long and the kids LOVED feeding the chipmunks! We brought our own peanuts and sesame seeds. They were so bold they would come right up and eat out of our hands. Perfect mini-adventure for our 10, 8, and 5 year old!
