Take the tram to the top of Prospect Mountain for an extraordinary view of downtown Estes Park and the Estes Valley. It is a scary ride if you have anxiety problems!

Fun ride, worth the nominal cost and the views are stunning. The ride is totally safe but excitingly scary. DO THIS! You will survive and be proud you did.

This experience was better than I expected. I have been on many aerial rides, so I was not expecting too much. At the top is a small coffee shop and souvenir shop. Then there are also trails to climb.

The view was amazing! I liked that they didn’t send you though the gift shop to enter or exit - the gift shop and cafe were an option. The staff we interacted with was young but friendly, cheerful, and fun to talk to!

Adults were around $14. Children were $11, I think. I also think there was a discount for senior citizens.

Pets are not allowed. They have a website that states it at Estestram on the hours and rate tab.

We timed it at about 3.5 minutes. It's faster than we thought it would be.
