Rode the Train ride with the family, great food and service, just make sure you go on a good weather day! It was really nice to be able to see out and up over our heads while riding in the train.. Then to be able to go out to the outside open train and take pictures and look at everything.... More

We were here several years ago... it was ok then. They are rebuilding after the fire in 2013 and the facilities will look great. This is a "do it once in your life"... don't need more than that. $16/person just to walk across a bridge to nowhere. It would sure be helpful and safe if the planners of this place... More

You could see the damage from the fire all around you. Very much an eye opener to the kids. The park was closed due to construction. Can appreciate that though due to the extent of work to be done. Still was a gravel road to get to drive on and park and hike to see the bridge and the expansive... More

We went to see the Royal Gorge Bridge, but it was still closed due to the damage from the fires 2 yrs ago, but we were able to drive up into the park to see it from the side and it was amazing. I would love to walk across it, maybe next time we are out there. We then stayed... More

The bridge was closed still when we went but there is a free overlook with awesome views of the bridge and the river below. Hopefully the bridge opens soon even though I won't be back this way for awhile if ever.

This is the tallest suspension Bridge in North America at almost 1000ft high. It was built to win a bet and it is the bridge 'to know-where!' A devastating fire went thru this region in 2013. Shame! But the bridge sustained minimal damage. They are rebuilding the park. Go and check it out. You won't be sorry

Sounds like they'll be re-opening soon after all the fire damage is repaired. The view is breath taking. We'll head up there next spring or summer.

Spent the last day Aug 10 th, before it was closed for completion of the destroyed building. They are trying for a Labor day opening. The facility will be improved from what they had before the fire.

We visited the gorge in Sept 2013 & the bridge was closed, well almost a year later we thought it would surely be open,no! Even though you cant drive over the bridge you can still go up & look around. But beware the traffic is awful & there is very little parking. Still a beautiful place

Thank you for your review. We hope to be more fully open by this weekend so guests can experience the bridge and park again. We are glad to hear you took in the sights from the free overlook. It is sad to see what the fire did, but we're staying positive and are excited about our rebuild and what our... More

Only saw the bridge over the Royal Gorge from a picnic area on a dirt road by the work entrance area, Will hope to get back to see it completed on our next visit.
