The ride up was great I believe at one point your 900 feet above the desert floor. They have a restaurant at the top didn't go there. If you looking to kill time I recommend this.

This was the highlight of our trip! The view is incredible and the ride on the tram is breathtaking. Be sure to head out the back and walk around the trails. It is surely an experience you can't miss!

Was planning on doing the tramway in the morning, but it was closed for maintenance. Had to wait until the evening and I'm glad we did! Beautiful views as far as you can see. Well worth the visit. Just amazing!

You have to get off the tram and go around to another tram for the trip back. Doesn't take long.

October should provide great views of the leaf changes. I'm not sure about the wheelchair accessibility. As mentioned before, take into acccount the Balloon Fiesta
