What a wonderful experience, first 'lift' of the day up the mountain. It was wonderful listening to all the ooh's and aah's as we climbed to the top slowing turning so everyone got an excellent view of the area with the guides tutorial. Many pictures later we descended to some haunting music, which we later purchased in the gift shop.
Don't miss this.......

This is a first-class experience. Not a "tourist" ordeal but a fun, easy, beautiful time. The rotating tram car is so much fun; you do not need to worry about getting a good view because everyone does.

this is a "must-do" if you are in Palm Springs. It can be a nice hike or a romantic event. It is so much cooler at 10,000 feet above Palm Springs and it was a very pleasant experience

We went mid-week and there were no line-ups at all. The views are spectacular and you could even have some decent food and drinks up top. If you have vertigo, perhaps this is not the place for you but the ride up and down was fun.

We visited the tramway whilst on a visit to Palm Springs. If you are in the area it is a must. From the amazing tramride to the top, to the views at the top. I promise you won't be disapointed. If you like hiking there are plenty of trails to do. For the novice there is a 0.75 mile nature trail or for the more experienced hikers there is a 12 mile hike to the peak.

The visitor imformation centre is excellent with helpful staff. Don't miss the cinema where there is a show about the history behind the tramway and how it was built.
