It had been twenty years since I had taken a look at El Paso and it has definitely grown a lot. This is a good place to observe the magnitude of the city including Juarez and a good place to see the Border wall. It is just interesting.

What a great experience at reasonable costs. The tramway maintains spectacular views over El Paso and a bit of Mexico. It can get a bit windy at the top of the Tramway, so it would pay to bring a windbreaker. The day we went (in September) the day was hot, and there were a few people waiting. There is not... More

Definitely worth the $8 price tag! Best views of El Paso and New Mexico! Great place to take some nice photos. Interesting display of previous trams to the peak! Small but quaint gift shop at the top.

This is a good stop for the entire family. I would recommend that you check their website and also call first to verify they are open. Also, bring a coat. It can be cold up top. On busy days there can be parking issues, I would recommend going as soon as they open. We went on a busy weekend and... More

Visited late afternoon in summer. The queue wasn't that long, but as the cable cars only take 6 people it does take some time. It's a nice pleasant ride and the views from the top are great. There is a small gift shop and restroom at the top, but nothing else to do and not much space to walk around.... More

The Tramway provides a great view of El Paso, Juarez, and Sunland. It's something you should definitely do once if you visit El Paso. You can hike up the mountain, too and take the tramway down.

Check it out. Great sights. The store at the top has room for growth. Once up there space is very limited.

This attraction is a must. The attendant on the tram was amazing. He was full of information and so pleasant to talk to. If you are in the area do not miss out!

In a city worth not much to do, it was ok. Ride up and down but wouldn't do it again. View is of 2 US states, and Mexico but hard to tell where everything ends or begins.
