We were pleasantly surprised by how much nicer everything was since the last time we were there. We went with 6 grandchildren and there was plenty to keep them entertained. There was a nice play land, a children's train, an antique carousel and the aerial gondolas. We had a great day and made many memories.

I had been here several years ago and it was an impressive place to see. It burned down recently and just reopened this Spring. Unfortunately they have turned it into a tourist trap. They have built the visitors center so you can't even see the bridge. You can't get in to eat at their restaurant without paying the fee to... More

My husband and I decided to take a side trip from our rental in Colorado spring and go see the royal gorge. It has been many years since I was there and he had never been there. While the views are stunning. What we were a bit bummed about were the prices. $23 per person just to walk the bridge.... More

While you're in the area, stop and see the Royal Gorge. We got there around 8 AM and it actually does not open until 10 AM. However, you can still go on the bridge...still have to pay full price.

The Royal Gorge bridge is the highest suspension bridge in the United States. The views of the surrounding mountains are amazing. What is even more amazing is the engineering genius of the bridge. Visitors can walk across the wooden planked bridge, and once on the other side can take part in a number of activities. There is a theater/museum where... More

We went with our kids and we all loved the gondola ride across the gorge. The bridge is impressive. The zip-lining looked like fun for the adventurer. Glad our kids could experience it as we did.

They were able to accommodate our group of 14 with two jeeps. Our guides were knowledgeable and fun.

I thought that $23.00 was pretty steep for what you get in return. The bridge across the gorge was nice but I think that commercialism is heavy in this gorge. It is a one-time only experience. Weren't able to go on the zipline there as the wait for this fee-extra attraction was over an hour. Too few harnesses for the... More

We truly hope that you were able to enjoy all of the other additional features that are included in your ticket price: the gondola (as often as you like!), the free tram to take you across the park, the three different theater shows, the new children's playland and carousel, and the many other vistas and vantage points within the park....

Vastly over priced. See just as much driving through the Rockies or going to another amusement park.

Royal G, Guest Relations Manager at Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, responded to this review

We are sorry that you felt that the price was not worth the experience, but we feel that the Royal Gorge and the engineering marvel that spans it are two of the most unique sights in Southern Colorado. We also strive to offer guests some additional attractions to keep them entertained and enlightened all day long. More
