18 minutes of wonder and amazing scenery both going up and down. Highly recommend the evening ride just before sunset going up, sunset viewing from the top and traveling back down after dark. The lights of the city just twinkle and the stars are magnificent.

I had done the tram a few times before but never with my little kids (6 & 4) so we decided to take the kids up on a overnight trip to ABQ. Too crowded and expensive and the "tour" guides that used to have a whole speech now are just tram operators and no longer say anything. Essentially it's just... More

There is nothing at the top but a view and a very overpriced restaurantt-- no walking trails that don't go up or down. Fairly expensive. Not worth it especially with children

For $20 you can take a ride you can take only a few places on the earth. They call them 'flights'. Ours was Flight 29 and flight it was. Just like in an airplane. Things below start getting smaller and off in the distance you could see the runways of the Albuquerque airport. There is always a guide aboard and... More

It was ok, as this is the only real attraction in this city. The views are nice, but the only complaint is that they cram everybody like sardines in the carts so you really can't appreciate the views as you would expect, especially for what they charge.

Really neat unique experience if you're in the Albuquerque area. A little pricey ($25 for an adult) but worth it if you've never done anything like this before. The tram operators are very knowledgeable and friendly, full of trivia about the mountain!

There's not much more to say. You will be blown away by the sheer fact that millions of years ago all of what you see was under the ocean. It's incredible!

Amazing views!!!! From all sides. Very expensive restaurant on top but great patio area for a soda. Stay and watch sun set. Be sure to bring a jacket. With higher altitude and wind, it gets really chilly! A must stop and see!!!

We went on a Monday around 1:00 PM and had no wait. It was about 95 in town and very comfortable without a jacket on top. It had been a beautiful day with little chance for rain, so we hiked to the Kiwanis Cabin, which is about 1.5 miles each way, but relatively easy hiking. There are some signs saying... More
