“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The wait time could be exhausting during peak days, but the view is worth it. Temperature at top can be pretty low (sunny day at base station and snow at top); it's better to carry some warm clothes.

“Up Up and Away!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The tram is a wonderful experience. The knowledgeable guides on the tram provide lots of interesting information. Once at the top there is a small but informative visitors area - I believe this area is under renovation at the moment to be completed the end of May. You can hike, enjoy lunch or dinner with a wonderful view of the city and then take the tram back down. A very worthwhile experience!

“A Magnificent View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

I took eight college friends from back east on the tram and all said it was a major highlight of their visit. The twenty minute ride is done in comfort and the slight movement when going over the tower posts makes you pause for a moment. The views are breathtaking. The top waiting station is being rebuilt and should be done soon. The tickets are reasonable and we ate lunch at High Finance after walking the crest trail to the stone house. We didn't have to wait for the return tram.

“A view of New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

If you like mountain tops, this is the spot. There are 2 restaurants that are just OK. Go early because there are crowds on the weekends.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

The world's longest tram is an exciting way to show visitors Albuquerque from the top of the mountain. Take the tram up, take a hike, have dinner and then ride down watching the twinkling lights of Albuquerque.
