This was a nice trip in the Fall when it was not busy. The trees in early November were still very lovely. The restaurant (the new one) is to be finished by sometime in 2017. The facts given by the guide were quite interesting. I have a hard time understanding why 30-40 climbers go up there a day when there... More

My wife and I, along with our two young children, visited the Sandia Peak Tramway mid-day on a Saturday. There were no lines and the staff were very friendly. The views are fantastic and the ride is smooth! VERY much worth visiting! $25 per adult ticket and kids under 5 are free.

What an amazing trip this is! I loved every second of the trip up and the trip down, even though my heart was thumping so hard I could barely hear the narration of the scenery. We were there the week after the balloon festival and didn't have a long wait, even though we went up in time to see the... More

We went on a Tuesday night and watched the sunset as we went up. Super cold but worth the view. A tad pricey

A fun safe way to go to the top of Albuquerque. Very informative ride up. Also a trail to hike up the mountain.

On a family vacation we took the tram early in the morning. Everybody enjoyed it. Helpful commentary, with different attendants on the trip up and down. You can stay a long time and hike along the ridge, though we weren't dressed for the wind. Thousands of vertical feet of geology and botany.

The Sandia Peak Tramway is a popular attraction in Albuquerque, and my friends and I really enjoyed traveling to the top in the tram cars. The employee operating the car provides some history and narration, which is interesting, and keeps the travelers posted on what to expect. One of my traveling mates needed to ride the elevator up rather than... More

This is a inspiring ride. You get to see the beautiful lights of Albuquerque during this fun ride. Top of the Sandias has great hiking trails to spend time and catching nature. Don't miss this attraction.

Enjoyed Albuquerque, was sorry one of the main reasons we traveled there, the Sandia Tram, was unavailable due to scheduled maintenance. The staff and employees were pleasant and helpful though and made suggestions for other sites we could visit or alternatives to seeing sunset from top of tram.
