“Amazing views.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

View of two countries, three states. A look into border life is interesting. You can see the new and old structures.

“A MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

See two countries and two states! The ride is four minutes each way. Tour the gift shop while at the top. Quite a history about Wyler Tram. Originally a Karl Wyler project to enhance broadcasting.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Even though I'm a local, I love to go up the tramway. There's a bathroom up at the top, as well as a gift shop with drinks and souvenirs for purchase.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Our family has taken a few rides up and down on the Wyler Aerial Tramway in the last few years. Once on top of the mountain on a clear day you can see three states and two countries. If you have a fear of heights, this may not be for the faint hearted. The favorite time was after it had snowed and the mountaqins were covered in white (not an often occurance in El Paso).

“You GOTTA do this!”

Take a camera! This place is awesome. If you have binoculars, take them as well. Be sure to look for deer and other wildlife on the ride up the mountainside.
