Sandia Peak Tramway, Albuquerque Reviews

  • Giving this a 5 stars for the views on the tram and the views at the top. Absolutely stunning and worth spending a few hours hiking around. Place loses two stars for how they manage the communication and lines related to returning back down the mountain. Two trams depart opposite sides of the cable, each returning every 40 minutes. There is no formed line for getting on either one, rather just a bull rush to get on. If you don’t, you do not get first priority for the next tram on the other cable 15 feet away, because that also has its own crowd. The tram also stopped partway up the mountain and failed to board when it landed for 15 minutes. There was zero communication on this. After operating this for 60 years I expected a better managed and organized process. Almost any other system would work better than the current one, and would significantly improve the experience for visitors and staff alike.

  • Going to the top on Sandia on the tram was breath taking, visually. The view to the valley and the view to the peak. We had an almost too full tram. Good explanations of what were seeing and what to look for: bear, cougar, birds were but a few. Photo ops, at the top, clear sky's and heavy wind made for great photos. The restaurant at the top is closed for reno. Lower restaurant has good food and a full bar. Again, w/views. Gift shop included.

  • I would say it's a little pricey, but you do get magnificent views of the city. Lots of interesting looking trails, but didn't get to go on any this trip. You should be aware, there is very little paved area or even ground at the top, so if you have any trouble walking, you'll probably be confined to the deck area. Still very nice views!

  • It’s the tram! I miss the place. I was sad to come up when the restaurant was being renovated but it was still a great experience. HIGHLY recommend coming here even if you are a local. Get away from the noise! I was gone too long and needed O2

  • Wonderful ride up and down the mountain. The price was very reasonable and I found a coupon on line. It was fun to explore and a great place to take pictures. Looking over the citys lights was awesome! Definitely a must see
