Sandia Peak Tramway, Albuquerque Reviews - Write a Review
This was my 1st time on the tram. What a great experience! The views are amazing on the way up-and-down especially at night while seeing the city lights. Even did some hiking up top which was nice and peaceful as well. The leaves were changing colors so that was an added benefit. Mateo was a great Tram Operator and made the experience extra fun! (Even if he did make us laugh at all of his corny jokes). I will definitely be doing this again!
A great view of the city. Awesome place to be and enjoy natures wonders.... The views are priceless. Please remember to take a jacket or a sweater.... The temperature can drop 20 to 30 degrees on the top. A must see if in Albuquerque
Take Insect Repellent! We didn't need any jackets or sweaters on this trip at the end of August. Great experience! Wonderful views and friendly, accommodating staff. With all of the rain we've had, I would recommend taking some type of "Insect Repellent". Also, if you have a pet, they do have accommodations up there for pets. I saw 4 or 5 cages for pets. The gift shop is outrageous in pricing, and I bet you can find same items for less at other locations. Definitely, They need more bathrooms.
Riding the tram is well worth doing! Adults for $25 and kids for $15 isn't bad for the amazing experience you get in return. I'm scared of heights, so the "do one thing every day that scares you" requirement was well met. As you're going up, there's a tower at the top, and we thought the trip would end there, but it's the 1.5 mile span after the tower that is most dramatic. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The experience is like flying, but without the hassle of an airport. Try to go at an off-peak time, because the cars can indeed be overcrowded. A position by the front window of the tram is ideal. Bring a windbreaker or jacket, because it will be a lot cooler and a lot more windy at the top than where you started. The views from the top are fantastic!
Went during the balloon festival so not sure if it was a normal waiting time but waited for an hour to get on a tramway. There's no way to reserve ahead of time. It was worth it though. Really great views and there's such good hiking once you get to the top.
