We actually had gone to the attraction before the devastating fire, but I was not a part of Trip Advisor then. It was magnificient, although even looking back on pictures of the bridge gets my heart pounding and makes me dizzy - ha. The scenery is breathtaking and I followed my family (slowly but surely) across the bridge to enjoy... More

Went with the hubby who was to afraid to venture out and walk the bridge. Bummer. I'm afraid of heights but was willing to give it a go but he wasn't having it. Grab some nice pictures from the area close to the rail car. Watched the thrill seeking zip line people shorting across the canyon... that takes sum guts... More

Maria - way to go to the both of you for at least facing that fear! We can assure you the Bridge is super safe, but we understand heights aren't for everyone. Here's to getting your hubby back one day! Feel free to share your photos on our social sites as well as here on TripAdvisor. More

The views from the bridge are breathtaking! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Included in your admission is the gondola ride over the gorge. You also get to view a movie about the history of the bridge and the fire that destroyed it.

I didn't make my wife walk the bridge but I did buy her a ticket and asked nicely. It was a very windy day so you could see the bridge flexing and she was freaking out a little bit. She ended up speedwalking all the way across and then turned around and walked right back. She actually enjoyed it but... More

This park is a must do even though it seems a bit pricy. The cost of running such a park is a bit pricy. Walked the bridge after taking the train ride below-- if you do one (bridge or train ride), do the bridge and skip the train ride. We walked the bridge and viewed the movie and thoroughly enjoyed...

Thank you so much for your review of your experience at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. We agree - it is a much-overlooked fact that the cost of running an historic attraction like ours is on the "pricey" side! We do our very best to offer our guests the best of all types of attractions - natural and man-made.... More

Walking across the Royal Gorge Bridge is definitely a must do while in Colorado. The entrance fee was just a little pricey to me, but the experience of walking across a bridge that is 956' above the Arkansas river was worth it. You walk on 3" thick pine boards and in-between some of the boards there are openings where you... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. We agree - the thrill of walking "on air" over the Gorge is pretty amazing. We are working hard to open all of the features and attractions that existed before the 2013 fire, and hope that you will come back to see us... More

The entrance fee to walk over the bridge was a bit on the high side (i am not really cheep i just didn't see the value in spending almost $50 to walk on a bridge) Great views from the parking lot i guess.

The bridge was still under construction at the time of our visit; however, there was no sign explaining you couldn't cross the gorge. We drove an alternate route to the top and had to climb down the side of the mountain. We didn't get very far with other families trying to do the same thing. Overall, it was extremely hard... More

Thank you for your feedback from your summer visit. Due to construction, and valuing the safety of our guests above all else, we did have mostly just bus tours available with Bridge access later in the summer. Now that we are open with so much to see and experience, we hope you make a visit back to get the true... More

Drove about 2 hours from Denver for a day trip. The site of the Bridge and Gorge was spectacular. The gondola ride which is included in the ticket was amazing, you can ride multiple times if you like. We took the gondola from the visitor center side to where the theater, playground, zipline and skycoasters were (1200 feet above the... More

Thanks so much for making the day trip down from Denver. So happy to hear you enjoyed the views and the experience. Sounds like you were able to experience much of the park and awesome that the kiddos got some adventure on the SkyCoaster. Please come back and visit soon! More
