  • The views are fantastic and the gondola ride is exhilarating! The $30 per person admission is a little steep, but for a once in a lifetime experience and driving all the way out to see it we decided.....  more »
  • $30.00 USD for an Adult Ticket. Im Sorry, but that is a Frigging Rip Off Drove out after riding the Royal Gorge Route Train, which was Awesome.  more »
  • If you enjoy waiting in line for 3 hours minimum this is the place. There is no way to reserve activities in advance and there is a chance the activity will shut down due to high winds. There were no....  more »

  • Stunning location of Colorado. Gorgeous overlook and bridge with all 50 State flags where you show your native pride. You can easily make a day of the Park and town. Be prepared to support the national parks though. Tickets are pricey but very well worth it. Make it a weekend and find a hike, rafting, ride the Royal Gorge railway, or, for you big spenders, you can get a helicopter tour over the gorge. Burger joint up the road had killer wings and green chili burger. Loved it even though it started raining as we parked. Classic Colorado experience.
  • Great place as always. The bridge is great to walk across and see the great views. The gondola ride is nice to see the gorge from a different view with the one side being totally glass. The zipline is great but unfortunately today winds were too high so they closed them down but do give you a refund if this happens. The swing over the gorge is the greatest if you like that kind of thing. It was a first time for me and my daughter and we had such an amazing ride. Glad we got on before the wind kicked way up. Will definitely be back again and again.
  • Coming here was absolutely breathe taking and a little a little bit of an adrenaline rush! There's something here for everyone in your family. One tip is to not go on a windy day like how we did, they ended closing everything early. We had fun despite. We'll just have to come back :)
  • An absolute must visit for all ages. The zip line is fantastic! The walk across the bridge now breath taking. The gondola ride is fun as well. Play area for the kids includes a small merry-go-round. Rock climbing added this year is also worth it if you have the time. Plenty of parking. Nice gift shop as well. This is really a national treasure to see the size and beauty of this gorge.
  • Beautiful is all I can say . The people that work there are awesome. I love to talk and when my family were going go go across on the tram I was a little bit of a coward and stayed in the gift shop . I had a really nice conversation with the security guard and a couple others all who were extremely friendly and helpful. The last time we came was probably 18 yrs ago but it was when you could still drive across the bridge. So glad to be able to see it with my kids as small children and again as young adults.
