Wyler Aerial Tramway Celebrates 16 Year Anniversary of Reopening

Wyler Aerial Tramway at Franklin Mountains State Park is celebrating its 16 year anniversary since its reopening and the public is invited to join the festivities Saturday, March 18, noon to 4 p.m.

Park visitors will be able to partake in interpretive tours, win door prizes, visit several educational exhibits and local food vendors, and enjoy live entertainment. The event is free and tramway rides are $8 for adults and $4 for children.

The Wyler Aerial Tramway first opened to the public in 1960 as El Paso Aerial Tramway. Fifteen years later it was established as a Texas State Park and reopened in 2001 as Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park.

The park features gondola rides, hiking trails and a 360-degree panoramic view of some 7,000 square miles covering two countries and three states.

Parking for the event will be at Bien Vivir Senior Services, 2300 McKinley Ave., El Paso. Roundtrip shuttle services will transport visitors to and from the parking area.

Regular park hours are Friday and Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the site, contact Wyler Aerial Tramway at 915-562-9899.
