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

Jeep tour was great and guide was both professional and personable. First time back to Royal Gorge since 1974. Only regret is that the bridge still isn't open to pedestrians. Family enjoyed trip from White Lake, MI to Buena Vista, CO. Day trip to Canon City was perfect and tour of fire zone around the immediate area was fascinating. Looking... More

We were in the area and decided to see what was left of this park after the fire that burned through there in June 2013. We visited the free overlook only, as that was all we had time for. The road is dirt and gravel, but our street vehicle had no trouble. Parking up at the overview is free, but... More

Experience was ok because of the scenery. Inside car outdated. Bathrooms disguising. Spent over $200 for coach.. Two adults one child for seats, food, and beverage. Food horrible. .. and Wow. To go containers for $106 in boarding passes before food and beverages. Come on what a shame!
