After taking the train we wanted to walk over the bridge. It was about 3:30 and they charged us full price, it cost almost 90$ for seven of us to walk over the bridge and back!!

We drove from Cripple Creek to visit Royal Gorge; such a beautiful drive! We went with the understanding that a few attractions would be open (based on the website); however, the bridge was the only thing open. The new visitor center/cafe was very nice. The price was a little steep to simply walk across a bridge; however, if other attractions... More

Took my breath away looking over the edge of the highest bridge in the United States! I loved that I was able to bring my dog right along with me into the park. I really enjoyed walking around the park and seeing the amazing views.

After seeing this on the list of scariest bridges, I decided we needed to detour there on our way home from NM. The canyon and view from the bridge is gorgeous. No pictures can do the place justice, you just have to see it first hand. Most of the place is in the rebuilding phase after a fire destroyed many... More

Looking over the side of the 955'-high Royal Gorge Bridge while it twists gently in a 45-knot wind is quite an experience. The bridge and the main visitors center is back up and running (fires destroyed much of this area last season) but some of the buildings and attractions are still being rebuilt. The bridge walk (or you can ride... More

At 16 dollars a person basically just to walk across the bridge we weren't impressed. Also after a very nice walk with lovely views the coffee in the cafe was a real let down. Certainly would not recommend as a place to visit

Royal Gorge is still recovering from the devastating wild fire of 2012. We visited shortly after their reopening this summer, and it is a great place to visit. The views are incredible and the bridge walk still takes my breath away. If you can, wait until spring of 2015, when most of the structures that were destroyed by the fire... More

I went here as a child 50 years ago, then brought my children 20 years ago, and now have returned in my retirement. It's been an exhilarating visit all 3 times. Even after the great fire that almost destroyed everything last year. There is a new visitor center with wonderful views, observation deck, cafe, and gift shop. The bridge is... More

The view is breathtaking. The bridge actually goes nowhere, but you have to walk across it to get the feel of just how high you are, feel the strength of the wind, and you should definitely look down. This got caught in the terrible forest fire, The restaurant and tourist entrance is rebuilt, but there's still a lot more to... More

Love the Royal Gorge, a beautiful must see. Unfortunately it has become a corny tourist area with a carnival like atmosphere but if you can look beyond the sideshows the canyon itself is magnificent. We lucked out and saw some Bighorn Sheep too!
