I've lived in El Paso most of my life and am trying to figure out why I never went here before. It's pretty neat and an awesome view of the city!!!

I hadn't been up the Tramway since I was a kid (a very long time ago) and we decided to take an out-of-town guest for a unique look at the entire region. What a wonderful experience it was. Well worth the $8 fee/person. The lines...More

Usually 6. Unfortunately on the return journey families don't want to split up, so sometimes the cars go down with only 2/3 people in. We had quite a wait at the top because of this.

Yes. As long as the line is not long at the bottom, it's doable. Short time on top but able to do.
How much per adult and kids.
