The trip across the bridge is one of those got to do things and we came on it just by chance when touring around the area. It is a bit pricey at $16 per person even for seniors, but guess they have to pay for all the work still going on. Stay in the middle of the bridge if you... More

I am glad to say that we had the pleasure and the opportunity to walk across the Royal Gorge bridge and that we were just mesmerized. The cost to us was around $16.50 each, which was well worth it. To me, it felt like the highest and only suspension bridge in the world. Let me remind you that I am... More

hopefully we will be able to visit again and be able to walk across the bridge now that the construction has been completed.

We visited there today and thought it was beautiful. We started not to go because of the reviews I read on here but decided to go ahead and we were glad we did. Yes it is under construction but the views were spectacular and we would love to come back when it's finished. The train is running but you buy... More

We drove up to this place as we headed west from Canon City. The recently opened visitor center looked great. We did not do the bridge walk because of time constraints. But you could walk to a couple of overlooks and take a picture of the bridge which is what we do. I'm sure as they keep re building there... More

We visited the Royal Gorge Bridge and had the opportunity to walk across it. The fee was $16.00 per person and at the time we were there we could either drive across the bridge or walk. We opted to walk so we could take in all of the views and go at our own pace. Unfortunately, the gorge suffered a... More

Mr. Lon Piper from San Antonio TX stepped on the rim of the Royal Gorge in 1928 and had a vision: he is going to build a bridge over this gigantic crack in the Earth and make it a world-known attraction, while collecting tolls in the process. After all, he already had experience building toll bridges and getting a good... More

Thank you for your feedback. The attractions that we will be adding in the future, as well as most that were built in the past, were added to enhance the experience of not only the bridge, but the Royal Gorge as well. There have been children's attractions added because they do not find the splendor of the views as magnificent... More

We had travelled here 16 years ago and remembered how awesome it was. We were disappointed everything was shut down during the week. We went the first week of September. Had to view bridge from a distant trail. Lots of plants are trying to make a comeback, but if we had known we couldn't get closer to bridge and enjoy... More

For those of you that don't know it, this is really a bridge to nowhere. It was built as a tourist attraction and goes from nowhere to nowhere. The other thing you need to realize that any noistalga you may have had about any attractions in the past you need to get rid of them because due to a tragic... More

Only the bridge to walk across. (Dodging the building trucks). Or you could pay an extra $25 to go on the Skycoaster ride. Everything else a building site. The railroad tracks for the Silver Rock Railway are not down yet. Even the water clock had no water. Phase 1 - according to the leaflet - is not complete. The board... More
