Tram ride is a great experience! The views from up top are beautiful - can see the mountains & downtown Estes Park. Also fun to feed the chipmunks if you can find them!

They put 8 people, plus a worker on the Tram. Do Not be #7 &/or 8 on the Tram, you will not have any view at all. Otherwise, it was fun, Great view. Buy your own peanuts ahead of time, to feed the chipmunks. We...More

I visited Estes with my wife and two teenage boys. The ride was great and offered awesome views. Also got to feed the chipmunks at the top of the ride which was a lot of fun too.

This takes you up about 1200 feet in just a couple minutes and the views are absolutely amazing. Our son (5 years old) was able to get on in his manual wheelchair and there was plenty of room. Once we got to the top there...More

This tram is very nice. It’s a 4 minute ride going up. The car holds 8-10 people. Once at the top you can get out and mill around. They have a gift shop that is cozy,as well as a small cafe. We sat outside &...More

Great ride up too with remarkable views. Almost feels like you’re a bird just gliding through the air in the tram. I’m scared of heights, but didn’t feel too overwhelmed. When you get to the top, the team jerks a bit which scared me, but...More

This is a fun little adventure! The hike up top is nice and feeding the chipmunks is delightful! The cafe at the top has good food.

I am so appalled that this company endorses the feeding of wildlife. They encourage feeding peanuts to the ground squirrels at the top of the tramway. Not only are peanuts not a part of ground squirrel's natural diet, but this exposes visitors to hazards such...More

We rode this and it was well worth it. Go early, since the lines get pretty long. The view at the top is beautiful. We also hiked a little at the top and paid $2 for peanuts to feed the chipmunks.

estestram. com I think you can find all the details if you visit this site. We bought tickets on the day last September and waited about 20 for the tram, is well worth the wait. Enjoy!
