"A staggering view!" - Seattle Times


The tram operates load-n-go. Including travel and boarding time, cabins typically depart every 6 minutes. A trip is 4 minutes each way. Visit the upper terminal and nearby patios and cafes for as long as you wish.

The tram is typically crowded weekdays 7am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm. We recommend visiting any time we're open on weekends. Weekdays, a great time to beat the crowds is 10am to 3pm or 6pm to 9pm.

Weekdays: 5:30am to 9:30pm

Saturday: 9am to 5pm

Sunday: closed (Sunday service returns summer 2019)
