This was very interesting but looks very dated - as if no funds are being reinvested in the attraction. In need of a good cleaning/paint job. The roads in and out of the attraction are horrific with deep potholes, etc. A hodge podge of attractions i.e. magic show, live animal cages, etc.which didn't really fit in with the overall theme...

Thank you for taking the time to post. Your comments have been given to our management team for review. The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park does spend many thousands of dollars each year to repair, replace, and generally spruce up the park. Our attraction is generally handicap accessible, however, because we are located in the mountains, there are some natural... More

Disclaimer: this review may not be fair because we didn't pay the $50 to drive across the bridge. We had intended to arrive at lunch and spend the afternoon, but arrived an hour before closing. The whole park tickets (if you did it all) may have been worth it, but the bridge only tickets were almost as much! We choose... More

We paid $100 for a family of 4. The bridge was nice. The magic show was simple but nice. They wanted you to purchase stuff. The trolleys were nice. BUT, my children really wanted to get on the aerial tram and then the incline railway that takes you to the bottom. The line for the incline railwaywas huge - so... More

We visited Royal Gorge Bridge and Park after a morning rafting trip out of Canon City. After spending a week in the Colorado Springs area, I would say this park was one of my favorite stops. The scenery from the bridge was fantastic, as well as trip down and view from the bottom of the incline railway. We also enjoyed... More

We felt is was overpriced for what you got but it has the most spectacular views. If you have not seen it this is a tourist place to go. I would not suggest you eat the food there so make sure you eat before you get to the park.

I good tip i didn't know was if you go before 10:00 a.m. it is half price to cross the bridge. If thats all you want to do, it is worth it. We got there at 8:30 a.m. and only a handful of people were there. That was nice but nothing else is open until 10:00a.m. I have come here... More

I have mixed feelings about this attraction. The magnitude of the bridge is great and a neat thing to see. However, you must pay $25 per person to enter the park and there's not much offered. The line to get in was long the staff did not move very fast...they were friendly, but overexplained the details of the park to... More

As an outing with our son's family, which included our 3 grandkids, we had an outstanding time at Royal Gorge. Yes, had it only been my husband and me, we would have been very disappointed to find out that we could not walk across the bridge unless we paid a high admission price. However, we made it a day's adventure... More

I was very disappointed that the only way to access the bridge was to pay an arm and a leg for tickets. They have now made this into a "park" so that they can charge more to enjoy it. For a family of four, this would have cost a pretty penny. We didn't want to see the petting zoo or... More
