I need to start off by saying I'm afraid of heights but our work group was going to do the Tram and I didn't want to stay behind. We waited our turn and were herded onto the cable car, each of us finding our spot where best we could. I was at the front window going up and it was... More

Better than the Disneyland Tram ride. We had some expensive & large vacations in our 50-State Quest trips over the 37 years. So this year we wanted to just take it easy for a change of pace. Well maybe it didn't turn out the way we first planned. Doing 3 states that year my review will now be about the... More

This was a really cool thing to do. I am claustrophobic and afraid of heights. Great bucket list. Was very comfortable wasn't scared at all. The view was amazing. Took about 15 - 20 minutes to get to the top. Was very informative. Would recommend doing this for sure. Once at the top you can stay and walk around take... More

My husband and I took the Tram to the top of the mountain. He was a little nervous about the height, but overall it was a smooth ride. Beautiful views. The restaurant at the top was being renovated which was a bummer, but still a neat Ride/trip.

This was our first time in Albuquerque and our friends took us here to ride the tram. Enjoyed the views from the top. We didn't have lot of choice on when we made the trip to the top. It was a little chilly up top so we didn't spend a lot of time up there. If it wasn't for me... More

We were staying in Albuquerque about 1 mile from this tram. We decided to take the tram to see the city from the mountain top. Fee was $40 for a couple. The operator of the tram gave us a history and pointed out sites as we moved up and down the mountain. The top has a steak restaurant and observation... More

Spectacular views! A must see! The views are breathtaking! The Gondola operator gave us a great deal of history behind the mountain & about Albuquerque. Family friendly.

Long wait during Fiesta week but worth it. I have been there several years and do a lot of hiking to the WPA area!

We arrived early evening and had about a 45 minute wait to ride the tram. You are outside so a hat or umbrella is desired on a sunny day. As someone that is uneasy of heights I managed to make it to the top without much problem. We arrived at the top right at sunset which was unplanned but beautiful... More

This is a "must" when visiting Albuquerque. You can drive around the mountain to get the view but on the tram you get to see the rocks canyons of the Sandias. I am a local but try to take the tram every year.
