The views are breathtaking!! The ride on the gondola across the Gorge is scary and beautiful. You must walk across the Bridge for the full effect of the Gorge.. This was an amazing adventure for us!

i feel sad to see how such a marvelous creation of nature has been turn into a 100% commercial Idea. 25 dollars is just to much just to be able to take a picture of the gorge.

This was a beautiful spot for all of us to take pictures! The gorge is SO huge it literally took my breath away! We also rode the sky coaster over the gorge and that was so much fun! A must-see while in Colorado!

There is not much at the Gorge since the fire. The Gorge it's self is of course fantastic. But for the price of admission it's a little pricy for a family. There's no need to come back for a second day.

We arrived at the Royal Gorge around 9:30 am and found out that they did not actually open until 10:00. We were allowed to go ahead and purchase tickets, which were $25.00 per person, which included the walk over the bridge, the Gondola ride over the Gorge, access the gift shop and theater (with a historical short film and magic...

Our first time there was right after the 2013 fire and everything was closed. Two years later they're back in operation and bigger and better than before. The walk across the bridge can be a little intimidating but so worth it. What a spectacular view. They also offer gondola rides and zip lining across the gorge. Definately worth a trip.

We visited as a family and thought we were all going to take the gondola across and walk over the bridge on the way back. Except for my husband he was going to zipline back. Unfortunately the winds picked up and they shut the gondola and zipline down while we were there. It was ok for me though. Once I... More

We're sorry to hear you weren't able to do the zip line, it really is a rush! You'll have to come back and ride the gondola now that you've conquered some of your fear :). More

We have traveled all over the United States and this BY FAR is the most overpriced LET DOWN. 23.00 to get in to walk a bridge and ride a gondola!!! A magic show that was lame-o. And zip lining ONE TIME across the gorge is 50.00 a person!!! Maybe 1-2 minutes to get across. NO JOKE! Cedarpoint is 44.00 a... More

When you go in get on the Gondola. Take a video while crossing. The Gondola puts you at the top most part of the part and then you just walk down hill for all the other attractions. Once you arrive you can walk down to see (im my case) the skycoaster (costs extra), it pulls you up high and swings... More
