Sandia Peak Tramway
This tramway lifts you from the Sandia foothills through five natural life zones to the top of the Sandia Mountains, more than 10,000 feet above sea level. Time and terrain seem to move in harmony as passengers scout the rugged canyons and lush forests for bighorn sheep and deer. The tram docks alongside the High Finance Restaurant . This is a must see. With 2.7 miles of sky-view travel, be sure to visit this spot while in Albuquerque.
I have always thought of myself as being afraid of heights but no longer! Taking the Tram was one of the absolute best experiences of my life. The views,the informative guide the WOW of it all... simply amazing! I encourage people of all ages to take advantage of this wonderful treat we have right here in Albuquerque!
It was a great ride up and down and great views. Make sure you take a warm coat...a hat & gloves might not be a bad idea for any one that gets cold easily...we went in Dec.
Nice resturant on top with good food and a good bar. Gift shop was ok, would have liked to had a better selection of actual Native American items...seemed like too many "Made In China" stuff...but still had a nice selection. If you're there, you don't want to not visit this attraction.
Restaurant at top - High Finance - was very good, a little pricey, but the food was excellent and service good. View of the city was a a show of its own.
Balloon Fiesta was a great experience. The people attending made it what it was - a major event. The balloons don't do much, but they certainly are colorful and creative. Why would people get up at 5:00 am to see balloons softly float away?
The tramway is a great experience. It is amazing how long and high it is. I am somewhat apprehensive about those things, but I managed the fear easily. The views are great up and down and from the top...A friend and I walked up to the Kiwanis cabin and it was a great short hike to take....It is, to me, a thing you have to do if you are going to Abq
Other than the slightly steep price of admission, a destination worth visiting. The view at the top is amazing, plus there's hiking and other activities available once you're there.
One of the "must do" things in ABQ for the tourist, I think.
This was so awesome I am going back in Oct 06. The view was terrific and the meal at High Finance delicious, but a bit pricey
The one drawback was cellphones in the tram!! They should be outlawed- very inconsiderate;people can't shut up can they...
