My husband and I made the Tram our very first stop on arrival in Albuquerque! He had been on the tram as a child and was excited about sharing the experience with me. We found $5 off coupons online so each paid 20.00 for a...More

We went up about an hour before sunset, and stayed to watch the sun go down and the city lights come up. Awesome. Bring your camera and a jacket. It is colder on the top.

The whole reason we, my mom & I, came to Albuquerque, NM!!! This is 1 of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. It really does have breathtaking views of Albuquerque. I posted a few but they really don't do it justice.

Took the tram one afternoon to "get it out of the way" while I was in town. It was definitely worth the trip. The views below are stunning. The entire trip can be done in about an hour and a half (allowing for a wait)...More

Definitely recommend! Sun was shining at the bottom, but top was beginning to fog in. Nevertheless, there was still a great view for a few minutes at the top. Interesting landscapes. Smooth ride up and back. And, since there was rain as we were leaving,...More

We stopped here on the way to Colorado. The ride up the tram is pretty expensive for the amount of stuff at the top; hopefully when they get the restaurant done it will be better, but they could benefit from a bigger visitor center at...More

I have always just shown up. During the balloon fiesta it is over crowded but other then that I would guess getting there about 30 minutes before the tram leaves. There is a nice gift shop and places to sit while you wait... More

There is a $2 parking fee. But with that $2 stub, it can be redeemed at Sandiago's for $2 off you entree.
