“Great view of Estes Park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The tram was a fun way to get to the top of the mountain overlooking Estes Park. We felt safe with the attendant on board. There are incredible views from the top with trails and picnic tables. Great opportunity for picture taking. Well worth the price.

“Nice ride to great view of Estes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This tram takes you up to a mountain top that overlooks Estes Park. The cars are mostly closed but not completely. An attendant makes the ride with you. There are some trails and picnic tables at the top, along with a gift and snack shop. This is a nice diversion but I enjoyed the tram at Breckenridge more.

“Beautiful views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I've been coming to Estes for 20 years and only a few weeks ago went up on the tram. The little red box isn't spacious, but the ride is smooth and fast. The views from the top are magnificent and well worth the price.

The temps, at least in June, are pleasant as you're only around 8000+ feet. You can hike at the top as well as picnic if you are so inclined. You'll also find a gift shop and restrooms.

Enjoy!

“Check out the Chipmunks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Aerial Tramway was fun enough - who doesn't like ascending hundreds of feet in a little box! The real fun thing to do though, is to buy peanuts and feed the fat chipmunks at the top as you look over Estes Park and RMNP. These guys (the chipmunks) aren't afraid of anything and will come right up to you!

Not ideal for those allergic to peanuts.
