Taking the Tram to the Peak is a must, however you had better get on it fast to get by a window to see. I myself had been in Albuquerue 20 years and finally was taken up on a date. Here was my impression. Company was great Tram ride was okay but not great very hard to see through people,... More

If you read nothing else, read this: if you are wanting to ride the Sandia Peak during the Balloon Festival make a reservation at the restaurant on top, High Finance. It gives you a cut straight to the front of the multi-hour line. You still have to purchase lift tickets but you don't have to wait forever to ride! The... More

Although our favorite restaurant at the top has closed for a massive remodeling project, the tram is still up and running for people to ride and enjoy the scenery. It is an amazing view of the mountains and massive range of the entire Albuquerque area and the tram has the third longest span in the world. A great afternoon adventure... More

Even if you are afraid of heights, have a glass of wine at the top of the Sandias, enjoy the view of the valley and the volcanoes at sunset

This is one of America"s most amazing experiences. Must see if visiting Albuquerque. If great for the whole family. Would not recommend for anyone with respiratory/heart problems due to the altitude.

The Sandia Peak Tramway is a must do for visitors and locals, alike. I am a local and have ridden the tram several times, and each time is like a new experience. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

Our tram ride to the top was $20.00 each in March of 2016. Plenty of places to take the perfect picture at the top. There is a gift shop you can visit after you've purchased your ticket. Helps to pass the time while waiting for the tram. Get there early. This seems to be a busy attraction. We saw people... More

Beautiful views. The staff is friendly and informative. Remember it is cooler at the top so you might need a jacket.

Truly enjoyed this evening! Had dinner at the top of the mountain and enjoyed the tram ride up and down. Sunset was gorgeous! Bring a jacket, it's windy up there.

When visiting Albuquerque we always love to go up Sandia Peak via the famous Tramway. If you are interested in personal hand flying and gliding this is a very unique launch point. The peak is open year around including skiing in the winter.
