Amazing views

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.

What a great thing to do when in Albuquerque. The views are amazing. The trip to the top is fun and even if one is afraid of heights it is only about 14-16 minutes. The views are stunning can see everything for miles. A beautiful partly sunny day made for a spectacular sunset. Usually they have a restaurant at the... More

Must have been up the tram over a dozen times. They recently replaced the cars to spiffy new ones. Every visitor we take up is impressed. The views are awesome, hiking at the top is top notch. When the new restaurant is finished it will be even better....a complete day or half day adventure. Winter can be a good time... More

We loved this whole experience. Nice trip to the top. We believe it was a bit pricey at $25 per person. Not much to do at the top. Yet their restaurant was closed for construction. WAY TOO many people they let on the tram at one time. Almost no where to go.

If you want up high the mountains with a wonderful view you should drive the tram. You get some history and informations during 30 minutes drive. You can hike down or up a trail and then use the tram. Relax and have some food at the restaurant up there. The other side of the mountain is for skiing during winter... More

What a wonderful experience. The clan (ages 3-60+) loved it. Think the car operator (Gosh wish I took his name- african american gentleman) deserves a raise. He has a great sense of humour, very professional and obviously loves his job. It's cold up at the top and just keep in mind at this time there are no food or drink... More
