I definitely recommend this to get the full effect. It's the highest zip line in America over the biggest gorge!! How many people can say they've done that? It's such an amazing view!

Cool location -- pretty spendy just to have a look. I suppose if you want to make a day of it then it's worth it

My friend recommended this to us and I was really impressed! All the staff who works there are really nice and make sure your okay. The Gondola was the best because you got to look out at the beautiful view and get some good pictures! I really recommend the zip line, it is scary the first few seconds but then... More

What a rip off! They wanted a lot of money just to walk out on the bridge. We just looked from the edge of the parking lot.

While of course the Bridge is our most awesome site, there's a lot to experience inside the park too! Glad you were able to see from our viewing point in the parking lot. More

Impressive views and plenty of entertaining activities, however this was very expensive, especially for how quickly you can see the sights! Cost our family of five $104 for less than 30 minutes of viewing(would have been less time, but there was a Wolf rescue organization on sight with a live female alpha wolf the kids thought was cool). Recommend taking... More

Yes definitely take advantage of our online booking and entertainment every day in July. Hopefully next time you can spend a bit more time riding the gondola, seeing our movie, riding the carousel, hiking our trails and of course showing your state pride on the Bridge. More

We wanted to walk across this bridge and they wanted 17.00 per person. Ridiculous. They have everything perfectly blocked off so you cant even get a look at the river unless you paid their fee. We left.

Without the incline railroad which was destroyed during a fire 2 years ago, this is no longer one of Colorado's top attractions. To charge a family of 8 $174 including a AAA discount to ride the skyway across the canyon & then walk back to your car over the bridge is a rip off. They do have a few kiddy... More

We miss our awesome incline, too :(. We are working on a new attraction to take guests down to the river so stay tuned! There's a lot included in the experience, sorry you didn't feel it was worth the admission. We are a very unique attraction in that we running our own tiny city, which comes with a lot of... More

It was kind of expensive for the fact that it was too windy to ride the gondola. The zip line was also closed because of wind. But it is an amazing wonder to cross over the gorge for sure. Not going to lie, I was a little afraid, peeking through the railroad tie spaces in the span. :) We had... More

Title says it all. The park and hiking trails before you get to the bridge are wonderful. We took a 5 mile hike along the rim of the gorge and the views were spectacular. After our hike, we drove down to the bridge and the wanted $25.00 just to walk across the bridge and we had just as great a... More

There is some pretty spectacular scenery around the Royal Gorge, as well as some pretty trails inside the attraction. We do have an AM Bridge only option, viewing areas from our parking lot and a ton to do inside. General admission includes the Bridge, aerial gondola, theater, water clock, trails, play land and summer-long entertainment. More

I had visited the park as a kid and did not remember it being so touristy. The views are spectacular but at $20-22 a ticket, it seemed very overpriced.
