Luckily it doesn't take too long to get to the top. The car we were in was very full and being a bit claustrophobic with a husband who isn't great with heights, we were happy when we were able to get out. The views of the mountains were awesome and yes, we bought some peanuts to feed the chipmunks (they... More

This was a nice, inexpensive activity. The tram travels fairly quickly to top of mountain where the views are beautiful. Once you are at the top there is a gift shop, snack shop. The best part of this activity is where you can buy peanuts in the snack shop then go outside and feed the hundreds of chipmunks that scamper... More

A great activity for all ages. At the top there is a small natural area where you have ample opportunity to feed the squirrels. Summit includes a small gift shop and snack bar. A nice diversion as you get used to the altitude of Estes Park.

The tramway was an easy way to get a great view of the Rockies. The hikes were nothing special but I saw many little kids smiling ear to ear while feeding squirrels. Overall glad I went, but won't need to go again.

The gondola ride was really cool! Once you are at the top the views are awesome! The kids loved feeding the ground squirrels peanuts and seeing how many they could stuff in their mouths (which is way more then you would think). The wait was about 45 mins to get on so that was the only real down fall. My... More

My husband and I loved the tram ride. It's fast and feels very safe. There's a shop at the top and you can also buy snacks and drinks. We didn't buy anything, but we had fun just relaxing at the top and enjoying the view.

It's a quick 3 minutes to the top. The views are incredible. There is a gift shop and café at the top with great smoothies and coffee/cappuccino. Buy peanuts in the café to feed the chipmunks. We were there just before closing and a bear came up to look for peanuts the chipmunks missed.

After days of hiking in the mountains the kids decided they wanted a change of pace and asked to ride the Tramway. While I'm not typically one to run to the tourist attractions I thought it would be good for the kids. We got onto the tram quickly and had a short wait to ride. The view is really nice... More
