  • In a word: Incredible. What an amazing experience! Royal Gorge Bridge is a foot bridge spanning a nearly 1000 foot deep canyon, and it is just gorgeous. Worth the price of admission. If you haven't been, you should see this at least once in your life. Recommend to: geologists, adrenaline junkies seeking a thrill (do the zip lining if you fall into this category), and those who love the outdoors. Go early: the parking lot can get crazy later in the day, and the canyon is most interesting to view when the sun is not directly overhead.
  • Very nice facility! Super nice staff! Only complaint was lack of parking... very frustrating! We did general extra fee attractions...took the gondola up and walked across the bridge to come back! Bridge is very cool ...has State flags along the bridge where you can take photos!! Great experience! Well done CO!
