The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure!

Make sure to have this helicopter flight with Ely after you visited Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. Although it's not cheap and a thread for the holiday budget when traveling with the family, it's worth every dollar! The flight is smooth and exciting and you will get unforgettable views of the scenery! Visit the website and watch the videos. That's... More

Eli the pilot was so cool! He made us instantly comfortable and informed us what to expect from time to time. He took time to answer our questions and inform us about all the things we were flying over. I would highly recommend taking the tour! I will do it again, hopefully soon!

Our family of 4 had an excellent experience here. Will was very, very kind and accommodating, and Eli our pilot was excellent. They were both very interested in making sure we had the best experience possible, and they went out of their way to make sure our kids (9 and 8) felt very safe and comfortable. We took the shortest... More

Short but wonderful views of Royal Gorge. Not real expensive and wonderful video of trip. My granddaughter will remember it for the rest of her life. My wife sat with her mouth open for the whole flight.

We are from Texas and during our camping trip in Canon City Colorado we bought our kids (15 and 8) the Royal Gorge Run tour ($129) that took them over the Royal Gorge Bridge and around the surrounding area. The price is a little high for the length of the ride but considering the price of the helicopter and the... More

This was a great experience! We went during our vacation to Colorado Springs. We chose the shortest trip, and I wish we would've chosen a longer one! Breathtaking views and a great staff. Thank you for a wonderful time!

We all loved this! Breathtaking views and an awesome guide. You have to take this tour. Worth every penny. Our kids (11,8,3) wanted to do it a second time!
