“Great view from the top”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

On of those things you got to do if it is your first time in El Paso. Parking can be limited....I had to wait for a car to leave in order to park since the lot was full. That also meant about a 1 hour wait to ride up as the tram car only holds 6-7 folks. But no wait for ride down. Great view at top and a small gift shop with bathroom, can spend as long or as little time you want once on top. Hidden in the gift shop is an interesting display book with pics and info about the B-36 Peacemaker bomber crash on the mountain. The Ranger manning the tram car was interesting.....remember to look for deer climbing the side of mountain as you go up!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

At the top of this place, you can actually see two countries and three states. What an amazing place to be during a sunset.

“Good time with my family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

The line was short when we went. It was about $8 pp. They take 6-8 people up per tram at a time. The ride up was beautiful and the ranger that rode with us was friendly and funny.

At the top, the views were spectacular. There is a gift store with plenty of small items you can buy for friends or your kids. And there are drinks and some snacks as well. The Ranger that manned the store was very friendly!

We had a good time. The only complaint was there were little gnats that got all over you when it wasn't windy enough. They don't bite or anything, but just freaked us out, as we'd never seen gnats like that (we're not from EP).

“Gorgeous views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Don't be fearful of the height...the tram goes so quickly that there is no worry. Beautiful vistas. Even the little ones weren't afraid. 7 adults can ride at one time so good for families.
