This was absolutely worth the time and money. The staff was great and the views were amazing. Cute chipmunks everywhere and nice gift shop at top. The cafe wraps were very good. A fun day with family.

We loved the Tramway, had to queue but it was worth the wait. Spent a few hours feeding the Chipmunks and birds. The views are spectacular up there. Nice gift shop and Cafe. Well worth doing if you are in Estes Park. #coloradorockymountainhigh

I rode this tram 50 years ago as a child and it has really not changed at all, but to be honest it was still well worth the money. It is an interesting experience riding the refurbished open air tram cars with the same experience...More

We were so happy we took time to ride the aerial tramway up the mountain. Not only were the views absolutely breathtaking, but hand feeding the chipmunks is one of my favorite memories of the whole trip!

We always take our kids here while on vacation. Once you get to the top, it provides a great view of the area. The prices weren't bad. And you can spend as much time as you want at the top.

Short ride on the tramway leads to beautiful views over the park and loads of photo opportunities with the semi tame wildlife. We spent a few happy hours simply sitting up there enjoying the scenery. There is a coffee/ gift shop selling cakes pastries tee...More

What a fun trip. Riding up the tramway. Nice curio shop at the top with a snack bar. And there is a walkway outside that circles the shop. Great view of Estes Park and the mountains.

I have no idea. I do know weekends are very busy in all of Estes Park. The best time to do anything there is during the week.
