Price is fair and views are incredible. It may take some time for your turn during holidays and when there's is school trips as the tramway doesn't for too many people. There is a little store at the top with some snacks for sale. For the most daring, I believe you can choose to hike to the top.

I unfortunately went on a bad weather day, but it was still memorable and fun. The ride is quite short, so I didn't have to worry about getting sick. Kids enjoyed as well.

El Paso, Juarez, Fort Bliss, The Rio Grande and Southern New Mexico can be clearly seen most of the Year (as long as it's not raining). The ride itself is breathtaking and the observation area large.

Nice weekend adventure. The ride travels at 9mph and takes about 4mins each way. You get to see a nice view of El Paso, New Mexico, and Mexico. At the top is a gift shop that's small.

It amazing how many people live in El Paso and have never gone on the Tramway. The tour guides are awesome. The views, particularly with thunder clouds in summer, is beautiful. You are at the top of the mountain and can see East to the Airport, Northeast to Ft. Bliss, South to Mexico and West to Mexico and New Mexico.... More

It's a nice place to spent the evening, the sunset view is nice and the mountains look great, towards the night it gets cold so bring a light jacket, or a sweater, but I went in fall, haven't gone yet in the summer, but it's a nice ride up, not too long but fun enough...

Took a ride up to Ranger Peak for a wonderful view of El Paso and Juarez. It was great, take your binoculars and see if you can spot landmarks for yourself. A great time for the family or a couple. Get out and enjoy the view.

It was a nice short ride of the tram. Once at the top, the cool breeze felt so good on a hot July summer day. We had a nice view of Mexico. The staffs worked at the tramway were very nice and professional.
