  • We loved our time here!! Rode the gondola over and walked the bridge back. Amazing views! Wanted to zipline back, but the winds made it to where you had to weigh at least 150lbs. Maybe next time! We.....  more »

  • Stunning location of Colorado. Gorgeous overlook and bridge with all 50 State flags where you show your native pride. You can easily make a day of the Park and town. Be prepared to support the national parks though. Tickets are pricey but very well worth it. Make it a weekend and find a hike, rafting, ride the Royal Gorge railway, or, for you big spenders, you can get a helicopter tour over the gorge. Burger joint up the road had killer wings and green chili burger. Loved it even though it started raining as we parked. Classic Colorado experience.
  • Great place as always. The bridge is great to walk across and see the great views. The gondola ride is nice to see the gorge from a different view with the one side being totally glass. The zipline is great but unfortunately today winds were too high so they closed them down but do give you a refund if this happens. The swing over the gorge is the greatest if you like that kind of thing. It was a first time for me and my daughter and we had such an amazing ride. Glad we got on before the wind kicked way up. Will definitely be back again and again.
