It's just a short ride to the top for a panoramic view of EP and the surrounding area. Take a little time to walk around or hike the trails. (After all, you likely waited the better part of an hour - or longer - to...More

This is a must see attractions in Estes Park. The views of the top are spectacular and truly breathtaking. So much so that I have visited this attraction at least six times over the years.

Beautiful. The views were amazing. The chipmunks were adorable. They loved the peanuts. There was a bear siting but unfortunaly we didn't see it.

The view at the top was spectacular. However, the view at the summit was not more spectacular and it was difficult to determine if we were walking where we shouldn't be around the communications equipment and buildings. Some of the wood needs repainting.

Oh, the views! A great first stop in Estes Park that makes you go "mmmm." Beautiful scenic views all around, great photo ops, cute chipmunks galore and some incredible climbing areas. Go early before the lines get too long!

The cars take you you up quickly, once you're onboard, but the wait was long. You can see wildlife from the cars, and once on top, the views of Estes Park and nearby mountain tops were beautiful. It can be quite windy on top, so...More

The tram seems slightly old and sketchy, however, in my trips up the tramway over the years, I have encountered zero problems. Slight wind can make things seem scary at times. Nice views, though.

We took the Tram up the mountain in the afternoon. It was very nice, although slow. One car up, and one car down. If the weather or winds act up, they stop the tram until it subsides. You can get stuck up there for a...More

No. They sell tickets right there. Go early as line forms and only 9 people go up at a time in trams. It is well worth the trip.
