The new visitor's center is fantastic, and the plans for rebuilding the lost structures looks good. The view from the bridge is awe inspiring as always. I had forgotten about the rail thing that used to take you down to the bottom of the canyon, I don't think they'll be rebuilding it and that struck me as a loss for... More

We drove up to see the Bridge and the Royal Gorge. We discovered we had to pay $16.00 each to go out on the bridge. There was no place to view the gorge except from the bridge. We left disappointed. One should be able to view natural wonders at least from a free overlook.

I understand that they was going through and doing a remodel or construction, but the place was a mess and just wasn't worth the money we spent to see it. I hear the best way to see the Royal Gorge is doing the train ride - I think its about $20 more - but from what I hear a way... More

The natural beauty of the Arkansas river gorge is spectacular beyond any doubt when viewed on the ca. 1929 suspension bridge. Being nearly 1000 feet above the river and canyon floor is sobering when peering over the railing. The only negative is the over commercialization of the area. $3 bottle of water, please! But don't let that stop you from... More

We took the coach but spend most of the time standing outside enjoying the rocky scenery. I would recommend who is not really willing to walks to enjoy scenery or unable to commute conveniently, you still can enjoy your vocation. The train going the same route back and forth for 2 hours, so if you want to have your meal,... More

Thank you for posting. The train is a separate company from the Royal Gorge Bridge. It is called the Royal Gorge Route Railroad and is certainly a spectacular attraction also. More

Lots of ways to see the Gorge and I think that we did them all. Took the trolley over, looked at the animals, walked back on the bridge, took the train to the bottom and back up. We didn't do the rip cord- too scary! Best thing was the train to the bottom so you can see the river and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. Most of the attractions that you mentioned burned in a fire last year. We are glad that you got to experience the park before that happened and hope that you will return and see the new park soon. More

Went on the reopening day and to walk across the bridge was just spectacular! I'm petrified of heights but I still visit these attractions otherwise I would have missed out on some great photos. To look down from the bridge 1000 feet down to the Arkansas River and the train line below was just magic. Then to watch people swing/fly... More

Arrived at noon on 9/13 with my wife. needing something to eat we went to the in-house restaurant.The menu is on an LCD screen above your head. The screen changes every 5 seconds leaving little time to read the info on the screen. With a bad back it is hard and painful to keep staring at the overhead screens so... More

A MUST-See and if possible, I highly recommend taking the "Segway on the Royal Gorge and Skyline Tour" to get the most out of your visit. I couldn't get enough of the views! You can walk it all, but the Segway tour was double fun. Visitors Center is closed until Oct 14, but it's still worth going to the bridge.... More
