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!

Title says it all, there isn't a LOT to do hate but the view is amazing. Guides are friendly and good about helping people who are scared or nervous about the trip. Wish it was open late at night for the city skyline view

Friendly rangers. Gorgeous views. It only takes a few minutes to get to the top. Definitely take your time and soak it all in! We should've brought food and enjoyed it a little longer.

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.
