“Bird's Eye View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Took my son and grandson (5 years old). We all had a great time. No wait to go up or down and we were there on a Saturday. The weather was pretty clear for El Paso so we had good views of the surrounding area. Parking was ample and the price is very reasonable. It was not crowded at the top and there was no limit on the amount of time we could spend there. We did have a park ranger who normally worked somewhere else so he was not as familiar with the ride, its history, etc. as a "regular" might have been but he was very friendly and a good host. I grew up in El Paso and had never been (60 years old). Definitely worth the trip. For those wishing to hike, one can hike up and ride down or vice versa.

“I'm surprised more people haven't been here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

For 7 bucks you get a scenic view of el paso, juarez and new mexico.. I loved it and there are hiking trails that lead to a crashed ww2 plane in the mountains.

“Take it easy or take it hard or take it both!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

It is easy taking the cable car up and, if you decide to hike down, BE PREPARED! It was DIFFICULT! I consider myself to be in reasonable physical shape and was extremely grateful for any stops, whether for another drink of H2O or resting on one of the benches. The trail ultimately does descend to the parking lot, but only after a lot of up & down trekking. By all means, take the tram up; however, if you decide to hike down,BE PREPARED!! If not, take the tram back down. Regardless, the vantage points will give you an exhilarating view of Texas, New Mexico, and Old Mexico! Five stars plus for the only cable car in the Texas!

“A long wait for not much on top except for the bugs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We've been up to the top of other mounts and had the opportunity to walk on trails and wander. For Wyler, you wait a long time to take the tram. When you get to the top, there is no where to walk around. You see the view and wait to go back down. All while the bugs are converging. Not a pleasant observation point.
