Plan to spend a little time here or a lot if you want to relax. You can grab a coffee and sit inside or out. The even have some board games to play, and don't miss the walk outside to feed the squirrels and chipmunks! They sell peanuts for them. It is windy and chilly even in August so take... More

I was able to take a few beautiful pictures at the top the mountain, I'm really glad we rode the tram up and hung out at the top.

Not sure how you can rate this any lower than 5. This was awesome and awesome ride with great views. The staff were very friendly. The only thing is I don't think someone in a wheel chair could get on this, but I could be wrong.

I did this alone because my boyfriend decided to sleep in one day, but very I didn't mind. Very breath taking views. I hiked to the summit of the mountain it was very refreshing. I met a few nice travelers along the way to the top. Fed chipmunks right out of my hand. Claimed rocks, saw different species of birds.... More

We decided on the tram to see more of the area and mountains. My sister-in-law had never had the opportunity to see mountains before so we decided to start with this. It had wonderful views and we were able to sit and enjoy the sun. Would recommend if you are looking for something enjoyable and simple to do.

Scarred the crap out of me on the way up but was great on the way down. Fairly fast ride up the hill though. Make sure you bring something to feed the chipmunks when you get to the top. You can take as long as you want to walk around and check out the views.

This was a great activity for our friends and family before our wedding. It was very close to downtown but gave you the feel of exploring in the National Parks. The tram ride is nice and slow and suitable for children of all ages. We all got great pics and there were chipmunks everywhere. A definite must do in Estes.

I have been visiting Estes Park and the Aerial Tram since I was a little girl. It brings back fond memories, has beautiful views, and cute little chipmunks that run around waiting for you to feed them peanuts. If you are patient enough you will get a return visit from several of them. One of my favorite places to visit... More

A great way to spend an hour or two if you're in Estes Park. The price at the time I went was $12 for an adult ticket. Not too bad for a spectacular view. Once you reach the top you can walk along the little paths, spend some time in the gift shop, or buy a bag of peanuts to... More

Really worth taking the trip on a bright, clear day. Great views over the Rockies and a nice, short hike to the top of the mountain.
