Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Palm Springs Reviews

  • TOTALLY WORTH IT!! Was skeptical before going that this might be an overrated tourist trap, but am proud to say this was WAY better than expected. The tram—awesome. And yes, the floor rotates so everyone gets to see all the views on the way up & down! Totally unique—where else can you go from desert floor to snowy alpine mountaintop, in a cool tramway?? Not to mention great food options & cool hiking trails at the top...!

  • Worth the price of admission! Actually found a discount ticket on 365tickets and there was no issues with getting the voucher turned into a regular ticket although we did have to stand in the ticket line very briefly. The tram was a delightful experience, two full rotations as you travel 11 minutes up to 8500 ft! Amazing views, the restaurant food was very good.

  • Amazing views, nice staff, food and beverage we're expensive which is to be expected but I saw people with their own food and beverage so that's an option. I don't know if price fluctuates depending on season but I went in February and it was only $52 for 2 adults. So very well priced for the experience! It was also only 43°F/6°C which was really nice.

  • The place alone deserves 4, maybe 5 stars for beauty, awe-inspiring engineering, and the park/forest once at the top. However, crowd control leaves much to be desired. If you go on a weekend with nice weather, expect to wait... and wait.. then wait more. I get it it's a fun thing to do it's a cool attraction it's become kind of famous now, we saw many guests from both National and international locations. However, it's just too crowded - you buy your ticket and then you have to wait an hour and a half just to board your tram up the hill. Once you're there, the restaurant and the grounds are pretty crowded. The National Park is really nice to walk around and that's beautiful, is not too crowded but then getting down the hill again you're waiting easily another hour or an hour and a half just to board the downhill tram. I'm sure it's quite a nice Money Maker for the operators, but I think they cram too many people into each tram it's really just elbow-to-elbow shoulder-to-shoulder, the younger kids don't even get a chance to see out the windows because all the instagramming adults force their way up. My advice is to try to go on a weekday if you have a day off or find out what the peak times are and avoid those days.

  • We went here last year and we really had a great time with my whole family! Spectacular views from the top to the bottom. The floor of the cable car rotates giving everyone a amazing view of the scenery ascending and descending. At the top, you can eat, relax and enjoy the view at one of their restaurants and bar. Bring your family for a great experience!
