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!

I have to say the view of the Royal Gorge and the Arkansas River was quite lovely. But $16 a person to walk back and forth across a bridge? Way too much, in my opinion. I realize there was a fire that wiped everything out and they are rebuilding. I am sure it will be nice once that is complete,... More

It was sad seeing all the fire damage as we drove up to the park. The tickets to enter were a little expensive. However the view from the bridge was awesome. It's a long walk across the bridge. But stopping often to enjoy the scenery makes it easier. It was pretty cool watching the train go by so far below... More

I believe this will be a great place to visit when all the construction is done and they have more things to do. The walk across the bridge offers wonderful views of the gorge.

The sights were simply remarkable and the experience traversing the bridge was a rush. For those that are not prone to height anxiety well worth it. Also for the thrill seeker, the giant swing that propels the rider (up to 3 persons per ride) goes over the edge and gives the prone rider(s) a view of the gorge unparalled to... More

I think $15 is too much to walk across the bridge especially if you have a large family. The view was good and we got good pictures. Gift shop is small but they are rebuilding after a fire destroyed most everything. There is a viewing platform outside the facility so you can get a good look at the bridge without... More
