We rode the high window train and had a good meal served while on the train. The service was friendly and amusing. You could walk to open car trains and both the windowed and open car had amazing views.

Husband & I both enjoyed our ride immensely. Since it was a gorgeous day we spent the last hour of the trip in an open air car and we were able to see so much more.

We rode in the Vista Dome car through the Royal Gorge. What a gorgeous ride!!! The scenery is spectacular. The food was delicious; the dessert was simply decadent. I had the Colorado bison burger; it was very juicy for bison. Johnny was our server. He was very attentive to all our needs. Thank you, Johnny, for the great service. I... More

What a great train ride! My husband, 16-year-old daughter, and myself all voted it as our favorite on our trip to CO. We had gone to the Royal Gorge Bridge the day before and saw the tracks below and then the signs posted driving through Canon City, so we made the hour drive again the following day to take the...

This was my first time on a train, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is, of course, a scenic ride, so it is slow and relaxing. My husband and I enjoyed a cocktail, appetizer, and some cuddle time while watching the scenery go by. A little small, if you don't like enclosed spaces, although the open air car gives you... More

This is a diesel driven train that takes you through the Royal Gorge Canyon. The whole trip is a little over 2 hours and runs right by the river. During the summer months you can see all the rafters coming down the river. The train has multiple options, from coach, to an all adult bar car, to the vista dome.... More

As Colorado locals we decided to do the Royal Gorge Railroad for our anniversary. It was a 70 degree March day and perfect for the trip. We sat in the club car and had lunch. Server was attentive and friendly. We ordered drinks, nachos with pot roast and a bison burger. It took about 20 minutes and they drop off... More

We like scenic trains and this one was very good. the cars were all airconditioned. Food was avaialble, reasonably priced. The train goes along the Arkansas River through the Gorge wigh great valley views. Would be nicer if there were some elevated levels of the ride above the valley, but it was fun

My experience is as a solo and so it may be a little more expansive and more to the point. I thought this trip would be a good experience and be able to kill a couple of birds with one stone so to speak.. I parked the car in the parking lot adjacent to the ride, which was full of... More
