“Nice old tram”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Beautiful views! The antique cars are great. The kids working the cars could point out some fun things about the town.

“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The ride up and down the tramway offers fantastic views of Estes Park and the surrounding mountains. Once you are on top of Prospect Mountain you may picnic, enjoy the scenery, feed the chipmunks and magpies and hike clear to the top. Enjoyable for all our group with ages 1 through 75!

“views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

the tram was a nice ride. You want to go early to avoid crowds. It can get congested on busy holidays and weekends. Pack your walking shoes. And remember to feed the chipmunks

“Beautiful views...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Every summer we come up here. The views are fabulous and everyone is so friendly. It is like stepping out into a different world. The views are so incredible. We enjoy this wonderful scenery. Most of all our daughter LOVES feeding the little critters. She laughs and enjoys that very much~
It is the BEST time ever...

“Beautiful way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I moved to Denver last month from FL and had been dying to see the mountains. Estes is a short drive from Denver so we decided to check it out. The wait for the tram wasn't long and we went mid-afternoon. I am extremely afraid of heights and thought I would hate it, but the ride up felt secure. Standing on top of the mountains was so much fun and if the wind hadn't picked up we probably would have stayed longer! The views were gorgeous and you can feed peanuts to the baby chipmunks which was cute.
