‪I have been waiting quite some time to write this review. This was 3 hours of my life I will never, ever get back and 3 hours that could have been spent doing something much better in Estes Park. Let me set the scene. It is my birthday. My 31st birthday. My husband and I head to Estes - the drive in from Greeley is beautiful, we are so happy. We see the Tram and I (not he) choose to take the Tram ride. The line is extremely long, but we have some time to burn before we can enter Rocky Mountain National Park at 3 PM. So again, I (not he) make the decision to wait in line for a little while to get on the Tram. 30 minutes goes by... then an hour. We get to where you pay, and by this time, we're trying to save face and still be excited, but that line was no joke. It was $16/person, which seemed a little steep, but hey. It seemed like it was going to be worth it. It had to be right?! The line inside was long, but then once you get to where you pay, there is yet another line that snakes outside. So we're about 1.5 hours in at this point. We finally get to the point where we get on the Tram. The ride to the top is GORGEOUS. Oh man. I said to my husband, "That wait was totally worth it!" and boy, did I speak WAYYYYY too soon! Haha. We are taking photos, the breeze is great, the views are stunning, just a 10/10 45 seconds. 45 seconds. We waited in line for 1.5 hours for a 45 second ride to the top. But this my friends is where the story takes a true turn for the worst. We get to the top and I am expecting we are going to head right back down. Another 45 seconds of bliss. How naive I was! There is an incredibly long line waiting at the top. The woman who works at the Tram who rode with us opens the door, gets out, and I say... "We... we aren't getting out, are we?" In the most confused, sad, underwhelmed voice one could possibly muster. Oh, yes. Yes we were. Out we got. We had to get back out of the Tram, and wait for ANOTHER 1.5+ hours to go 45 SECONDS BACK DOWN THE MOUNTAIN. Livid. Angry. There are so many words that come to mind but TripAdvisor won't publish my review if I write them here. I almost lost my mind. Almost. There were moments where I didn't know if I wanted to scream or if I wanted to cry. Maybe both. Mind you, during this time the temperature dropped about 20 degrees, it rained, lightning, thundered... the whole 9. Kids are crying, I'm right there with them. I imagine this is similar to what hell is like. There is no cover from the rain, everyone is soggy and cold. They're stopping the Tram because of the lightning... And everyone is just over it. As we came back down and the windows were open, I told everyone that could hear me "DON'T DO IT!" "IT'S NOT WORTH IT!" I literally shouted it. So I tell you, my friends here on Trip Advisor - don't do it, it's not worth it. 3 hours of my life, $32 dollars, all wasted for 45 seconds of ... I am still not sure. Nice scenery? That's Colorado - there is nice scenery everywhere. This is a TRAP. TRAP. Think about this truly before you commit. If you read this, then you take that Tram ride, my review will haunt you. I just want you to know that. Godspeed.‬

‪overpriced but beautiful views‬
ספט׳ 2021
‪We arrived at their opening time, 9:00 am, on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. A line had already formed but we only had to wait about 20 minutes by the time we paid and got on a tram. The operators seem rather unenthused but I suppose going up and down in those things all day would get tedious even despite the beautiful views. Most people were not wearing masks inside the tram despite it being recommended. We spent some time at the top admiring the views and walking for a bit. Since we didn't have too much time to spend here, we were able to get right on a tram with just two other people to ride back down. Overall, for the price it was just okay and I only say that because we spent much less ($25) the day before to see the entire Rocky Mountain National Park whereas this cost like $32 for a much shorter experience with much fewer views.‬

‪Nice friendly and reasonable trip. The tram is a smooth ride to the top and back down. It appears to be a family run business as our tram operator is the Granddaughter of one of the staff there. Highly recommend this. Be sure to hold onto your hats after you get off the tram ‬

‪Fun day trip. Tram is very smooth and stable. View from the top is breathtaking. Price was very reasonable we thought. A true Estes Park original!‬

‪I have been coming to Estes Park for many years and finally rode the Tram up the mountain. It was fantastic! The views are spectacular and there are hiking paths at the top for everyone. The ride was quick and the operator is knowledgeable about the area‬

‪Loved it!‬
אוג׳ 2021
‪We enjoyed this very much. Beautiful views from the top. A quick 3 minute ride to the top and stay as long as you wish. We had been to RMNP the day before but still these views were amazing. I’m a bit of a coward but this seems to hug the landscape which made it less scary. Thought it was wonderful!‬

‪Breathtaking views. Take peanuts to feed the chipmunks and Clark's Nutcrackers. Walk arround and enjoy nature. Get a coffee and food at the cafe.‬

‪Totally enjoyed experience. Only drawback is the wait in line but not really anything they can control for something popular.‬

‪Not worth it‬

‪We waited an hour and unfortunately just didn’t feel the ride was worth the time or money. We wouldn’t recommend this — especially if you will be hiking in RMNP. Way better views to be had in there!‬

‪The views were amazing and we would definitely recommend this trip. The only negative was the hour long wait to ride. If you have the time, it’s a lovely hike at the top.‬
