You can take a picnic lunch to the top or eat at the coffee shop there. Lots of area on top to walk around, hike, and rest.

Really enjoyed this ride. The view from the top is awesome. We walked some of the trails, fed the chipmunks and just enjoyed the views. Definitely on our list the next time we are in Estes Park.

Extremely long wait to get to the top. I would say we waited at least 1.5 hours. Stayed up top for maybe 15 minutes and then waited another 45 min to come back down. The sites from up top are beautiful but hard to swallow...More

This is probably the 50th tram ride I've been on in my lifetime, and really the tram ride itself is probably one of the shorter ones as it moves quite fast. At the top the panoramic views are amazing...this is the only true way to...More

This is not any great or exciting experience, but having ridden this tramway as a young child, with my children and with a granddaughter, it was a wonderfully nostalgic ride for my husband and me to take on a recent trip back to Estes. The...More

The team ride is fun. You get to the top pretty quickly. Really the most fun is feeding the chipmunks. Go inside the gift shop and get a big bag of peanuts for about $4.

Inexpensive way to spend a few hours. The tram ride is quick, wait was not too long. The views from the lookout desk at the top are fantastic. You can hike up from there and the path is easy, well maintained.

We stopped by on the spur of the moment and so glad we did. Breathtaking views from the top of the mountain close to downtown. Views of the mountains and can look down and see the whole town of Estes Park. Very reasonable rates!

We went on a day when there was almost no one there. It was very peaceful and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The views are some of the best you will see in all of Estes. Even better then some of...More

We had a good time - the tram is VERY high. The people were generally ok and the chipmunks at the top are hilarious. I just thought it was a little expensive ($14/adult).

I have no idea. I do know weekends are very busy in all of Estes Park. The best time to do anything there is during the week.

I didn't see any pets either. At the top, there are lots of chipmunks so I bet they don't allow animals because of that.
