I only had two hours when I visited Estes Park so I wanted to see as much as possible and chose the Aerial tram. I am so glad I did. The employees were awesome and the views spectacular. I enjoyed every minute.

The view from up top is great. You can see the entire valley and the ride is a lot of fun. Take a few photos fast because you go up and down faster then you may be expecting. If you like to feed fat squirrels and can buy bags of nuts at the gift shop at the top and feed... More

Definitely worthwhile as long as you're not terrified of heights! It offers a smooth journey to the top and doesn't rock about like I thought it would. Make sure to take a camera!

It's a little hard to find because the sign is in front of the road you need to take to get there. Fun tram ride. Nice gift shop and diner at the top with friendly staff that recommended good restaurants. Wonderful views and you can feed the animals

This was a pleasant ride to the top where we could look down on Estes Park and take pictures. The shop there had reasonably priced items, too.

This place was awesome! The tram went pretty high up and was a little scary but the view was gorgeous. The staff was very friendly. Don't miss this place if you're visiting estes park

This is not worth the money or the wait. There are plenty of places to get good views of Estes Park without buying a ticket or waiting in line.

My children loved feeding all of the chipmunks (advise to go in morning or the animals are full in the afternoon) and even learned a little about perserverence and patience in the process. The ride up was breathtaking.
