When I saw this on the ALB attraction, I was too excited. My chicken husband was another story, but I convinced him to do it anyway. I'm so glad we did. The ride up & down was smooth & the views from the stop were absolutely gorgeous.

This is a definite must at least once. The views are amazing and the heights are dizzying. At the top is a nice restaurant where you can see the country for miles. They shut down if the wind gets too fast. Rode it once when the winds were just short of too fast. Rather exhilerating to say the least.

Wonderful vistas. Great ride. Go as early as possible. We were one of the first rides up. When we returned to the bottom around midday there were lines through the building, down the outside stairs, and to the parking lot, with a reported WAIT of 1-2 hours. SAD! There is great hiking at the top. Go for a walk!

It was nice and cool view from above! We had some snow experience at the peak and was nice to feel cold at the end of February!

Get there early. Depending on when you go - the line to get tickets can be ridiculous (hours long & you cannot buy them online). So if you are into heights - you have a lot to look at. If you get a little squeamish hang out in the middle of the tram & you shouldn't get that, "Ahhhha!" feeling.... More

Terrific views and a fun and interesting day's trip! Ride to the top with great views of the landscape and mountains.good to wear comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots and take a nice long walk. The terrain will support any level of walker. There are pictures and write-ups describing the area. In addition, there is a restaurant at the top-... More

Had a few friends in town for Thanksgiving so we took the tram ride...incredible views, food at the base, brand new tram cars and breath taking views from the top. Trails for hiking, ski lifts open for riding, no snow yet but it's coming. Would be fun to ski or cross country ski as well!

Cold but well worth the chill. They are in the process of a remodel of the restaurant at the top so that was a bit of a disappointment but there's an option before going up.

Great date night or fun for the whole family! We rode up in the tram a couple of hours before sunset. (Make reservations in advance as certain time slots seemed to fill up quickly.) The ride was a lot of fun, but the tram was pretty crowded. (Try to be one of first in line to get a spot by... More
