My sister and I visited Royal Gorge and, while there, noticed the train in the canyon below. We got online and made reservations for the next day and I am so glad we did. We rode in a Vista Dome car that had larger, curved glass windows so that we could see both out and up. While on the train... More

We rode the Royal Gorge RR after visiting the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It was perfect planning. We rode in the dome car. The seats were super comfortable and it was air conditioned! We rode in relaxing comfort and took in the amazing views! We requested to be on the river side of the train. The other side is often blocked... More

This was our first train ride like this and it was fabulous! We splurged and bought the Vista Dome seats and had a better than average breakfast with souvenir coffee mugs... BONUS!!! But after we ate (and the service was great) we went to the open air car and spent the rest of the trip out and back mixing and... More

The train ride through the gorge was beautiful with a rushing river next to the tracks. We sat in the dome car and had a delicious breakfast while photographing rock formations and the Royal Gorge Bridge overhead. We were free to move to the open air car or bar car. Service was average to slow at times, so pack your... More

We are a group of 6 that rode the train yesterday, Monday 29th June and we all had a great time. The booking process was easy over the net, the staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery was fabulous. We had lunch on the train and it was also nice. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Canon... More

We had not done this activity in the past. Nice train, great staff, pretty good food. Very nice ride, great views. It was a nice relaxing two hours. We had been on the go for several days so this was a nice ending to our trip. Canon city had more to offer than we knew.

We've ridden the train during the daytime before. While a beautiful trip, it was hot and crowded in coach. This time we rode club with the family night deal (kids free with adult) and had a marvelous time at a lower cost. The temperature was perfect in the open car, yet we had assigned seats in the air conditioned club... More

Very informative and has an open air car! Get your tickets early because the less expensive seats sell out fast.
