Loved it! Beautiful views of the gorge and great food served in the Vista Dome area. Also, you can be outside in two of the cars designated for that and well worth it.

Even if the place had been open it would have been a waste of time....there's really nothing to see. I'm trying to put together a hundred characters for this review and I'm having a hard time with that...go if you must, but there's way better attractions in the area to spend your time on.

We took the Royal Gorge Railroad to see the suspension Bridge or the Gorge. We were told the park was closed until further notice. But the bridge from below is Amazing. I would recommend making it to the park once it opens.

This should be a nice attraction but its currently closed but plans to reopen later this year. There is a walk beside the attraction which is quite ok so you can get a look at the bridge. Nice views.

My 15 year old grandsons and I did this ride and LOVED it! It's definitely a thrill ride and we are adrenaline lovers! I am in my 70's and my teenage grandsons keep me feeling young with activities like this!

The gorge was very pretty, but I was a little surprised there was no official overlook. We had to walk down a little incline and look over the edge. The bridge was closed that day so we didn't see it. Long drive up the mountain and the dirt road was very rough. Thankfully they did have a bathroom on top!

I received e-mails and a magazine stating the park reopened in May. When I arrived in July, it was still closed. Nothing like driving three hours only to climb on the side of a cliff to get a view of the gorge.

We went to the helicopter ride place which is family run. Nice, nice people! Tons of fun going up and over the canyon. Would do it again in a heartbeat! Pilot Will is awesome!

It was nice to be able to go in this time, last year we were in the area but the fires damaged 90% of their buildings, glad that we had a chance to visit this year, they are working on rebuilding the park and is going to look great

We decided to swing by there on a road trip, so I had not consulted TripAdvisor first. I did not realize the 2013 fire had closed the private facility, including the bridge. We proceeded to the free overlook, but parking was limited. I was able to get a few good pictures. I'm not sure if out-of-staters realize the bridge is... More
