I visited the bridge as a kid and came back 20 years later to check it out with my husband. This was just how I remembered it. Such spectacular views! It was a little windy when we went so the bridge was swaying but we just kept going. We enjoyed watching the helicopter flying all directions down the canyon. They... More

We hope you'll be able to come back and visit once the new park is finished - as always, you'll have the same amazing scenery, but we'll have new rides, attractions, and facilities! Thanks again for taking the... More

You must go to Pizza Madness when visiting Canon City. The best pizza ever, great decor that is worth taking photos. The wait staff especially Deanna who seems to have 10 hands, as she attends to everyone there! You will be talking about this place for a long time!

I visited the park July 2006 and it was so awesome. I was saddened to hear about the fire last year that destroyed everything. I'm planning a trip this summer. The last week of august to be exact. I'm hoping the bridge will be fully open by then and at least a visitor center with gift shop. My husband wants... More

We went to the royal gorge bridge on march... Only the bridge was open none of the thrilling games were open... They said that everything is closed except the bridge because everything was damaged because of forest fire... We were able to see the bridge from a trail on the side and the sight was amazing... Ppl there said that... More

Hello and thank you for your comments. We are in the process of rebuilding and are working as fast as possible to get reopened. This past weekend we just opened our Skycoaster (extra pay feature) as we finally got electricity to the south side of the gorge. This is a super high adrenaline ride and people love it!

Most of the Royal Gorge Park facilities were destroyed in the fire that occurred last year. Recently, after much prodding from the public, they’ve begun running limited bus tours. The tour starts on the north side of the bridge where buses take visitors to the middle of the bridge where they can get off the bus and view the gorge.... More

Many people planning their vacations out West this year will see old reviews of the Royal Gorge Bridge and make their plans only to find the park is closed for the most part. A wildfire destroyed the park last summer, and only a few parts were spared. The SkyCoaster, which is a supreme adrenaline junky's paradise was left unburned, as... More

Thank you for your post! It is great and we appreciate the help in spreading the word on what we're up to. You covered it well and there's nothing to add. I only have one slight correction as there was a typo. The bridge planks are 956' above the Arkansas River. The 1,056' is actually from the top of the... More

This is a really great place to visit. I've visited it several times over the years with family and friends and am saddened to learn that a fire affected it in June last year. There is also a ride down to the river as well as a trolley car over the gorge. Awesome beauty and the history of the bridge's... More

bridge closed for the winter, but we had the nearby picnic area to ourselves in a light snow cover. I have the feeling the bridge would not be built today, for ecologic reasons. Some day I'd like to paddle the gorge and ride the train in the valley. There are plenty of vendors for raft trips. We followed the Arkansas... More

Greetings. Thank you for the review. Typically the bridge is open 365 days a year; however, we've had to close this year due to a wildfire which destroyed much of the park (the bridge was barely damaged - just some planks replaced and it was deemed structurally sound). We are in the process of rebuilding and will be open on... More
