The scenery was absolutely amazing! We had tickets in the club car which was nice. Food was good and service was great. The open air car is the place to be if the weather permits. If I did it again, I'd get the cheapest ticket and go to the open air car immediately. Maybe a little pricey for the short... More

We took the mid day train through the Royal Gorge and sat in the club car. Table service was excellent and the server, Shannon went the extra mile for us to make sure we had everything we needed. If you happen to be in Canon City don't miss the opportunity to ride the train.

12:30pm departure. Only trip of the day in early April. Not sure what the schedule is during the summer. Had a great lunch on the train, very good local brews also. Views were great. Spent most of the time on the open-air car. Able to take great photos of the bridge, river, wildlfie, etc. Absolutely recommend this ride.

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to ride Royal Gorge Train with my family. With our little ones in tow we did not know what to expect but we're greatly surprised. The quality of service on the train was remarkable. Our servers name was Porsha and I can not say enough good things about her. She is the definition of... More

Two hours in the beautiful Royal Gorge by a comfortable train. Great accommodations, comfortable seat, good food and amazing scenery. We took the Dome Coach, but spent some time in the open air coach. Relaxing and beautiful!

This is a must see if you are in the area. The scenery is amazing and it was an interesting way to spend an afternoon. However if you are afraid of heights this isn't the place for you. We decided not to travel over the bridge or anything else the place had to offer. I felt that it was too... More

You've walked over the bridge - this is better! 3-hour train ride, including a fabulous lunch, through the Royal Gorge alongside the Arkansas River. Really knowledgeable and busy staff. Get a seat in one of the Observation cars, but go to one of the outdoor cars if the weather is nice. The views are just spectacular. Really a wonderful way... More

The railroad ride through the Royal Gorge is absolutely beautiful. Takes about two hours and one gets to see the gorge from a perspective only available to white water rafters. Great staff, good food available at modest prices. Make sure you take the opportunity to view the gorge from the open cars.

My fiancee and I paid extra to get seats in a car with glass bubble observation windows. It turned out that the weather was nice enough, that the only time we spent in our seats was for the lunch. The rest of the time we spent on one of the cars that was open to the weather. It was a... More
