Definitely worth the $8 ticket price for a round trip ride on the tram. The tram takes you up to the top of the Franklin Mountains. Once on top, you can see almost a 360 degree view of the whole city of El Paso!! Awesome!

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.
