This is one of those tourist destinations that you do if only to say "I made it to the top". View was very clear. The tram on the way up was jammed, but only about 20 people on board for ride down. Sandia means Watermelon. The rocks have a pink hue.

Get there early! we arrived 30 mins before the first tram and there was no queue. By time we came down the queue was huge. Views all the way up where stunning. Its a must do if your in the area. Guides in the tam where very imformative on the way up and down.

At first this felt like the usual Aerial tramway experience until you go over the 2 tower, wow what scenery !!! A good tip would be to go about 6pm and see the sunset, the restaurant at the top is very of and lacks a quality of service you would expect in such a location (I believe ithe restaurant is... More

If you're going to be in Albuquerque, this is a must do experience. Full disclosure - I'm terrified of heights, but knew I had to do this. Once on the tram, it's basically hang on and watch the mountains come right up to your face. I admit my palms were a little sweaty, but the tram operator was professional and... More

What fun! We enjoyed our tram ride - the view was spectacular. We then hiked on one of the many trails. It was wonderful - we saw numerous birds, squirels and even some mule deer. We will definately take time to do this again.

We really enjoyed the views and spending time on top of the mountain. There was a bit of a line and it is not cheap but definitely worth doing.

Unfortunately for us it was a cloudy day but the scenery was still terrific. I understand it is the longest and third highest tram. There are trails on the top if you so wish to explore some of the terrain. All in all beautiful and exhilarating.

Lots of wind on the day we went which made the entrance to the upper station a bit harrowing for me who is afraid of heights. The rest of the trip up and the whole trip down were smooth. Beautiful views! Lovely sunset!
