It was windy the day we took the tram to the top. Although it was only a 10 minute ride it was a bit scary when the gondola started to sway in the gusts! Also, the gondola stops as passengers are being loaded & unloaded at the top & bottom! If I had on appropriate shoes I would have hiked... 更多
I thought it was reasonably priced. The family that owns it was very nice. The view at the top was spectacular. The cars feel very safe. My son and I hiked for a little bit at the top before coming down. Plan on bringing warm clothes with you. May not want to wear shorts.
The views from the top of the mountain are amazing. I was scared to death during the tram ride up. It was a windy day and the tram car was swaying quite a bit. It was well worth it once we got to the top. Amazing. We had tried to ride this tram twice before and it was closed for... 更多
The tram seats about 4 people . It slowly goes up the mountain and you can get off and observe all the mountain. You can even walk around on top. It was cloudy and rainy when we went but still such a spectacular view.
A modest cost to literally get to the top of the mountain ($8 for my senior ticket). It was a clear day and, as they advertise, you could see nearly forever in all directions. Open only during the summer. The cars are closed in, so there should be minimal worries about being “up there” above the ground on the way... 更多
My family and I visited this on a rainy day with heavy cloud cover. We did the tram just for the novelty of it. Actually if you drive to get to this was really cool. We took a dirt road along the old Monarch Pass and then hiked to the top of a mountain. It was with a two-year-old and... 更多
This is a great little attraction for the whole family. The tram turned 50 years old this year. The tram cars are antiques, but they add to the experience as you feel like you have been transported back in time as you take the trip up the mountain to 12,000 feet. The view at the top is magnificent and the... 更多
The scenery at the top of Monarch Crest was amazing. Was 70 degrees with a light wind. Enjoyed the ride and fudge and free popcorn in the gift shop.
On our way home from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, we stopped here after seeing it a few times but never stopping. The staff was really sweet and kind, getting you all set and ready for the ride up. The old style feel of this tram was really cute, and worth the trip up. We wandered around up at... 更多
