Experience one marvel after another at the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, where a wonder of man-made architecture crosses a stunning example of nature’s raw power. Over 956 feet above the crashing Arkansas River, the Royal Gorge Bridge — one of the world’s highest suspension bridges — connects visitors from one side of the millions-plus-years-old canyon to the other, where even more adventure awaits.
Awe is the closest word we can find to describe what you’ll feel as you take in the staggeringly beautiful views of the canyon and the surrounding region. You’ll definitely want to bring a camera with extra memory (or film, if you’re old-school) to capture every moment of your trip. But the views aren’t the only reason to visit.
The Royal Gorge Park is packed with fun ways to spend a day, like the thrilling Cloudscraper ZipRider zip line or chill-but-awesome gondola rides across the canyon. And the pulse-pounding Skycoaster helps you make your acquaintance with the Royal Gorge’s steep drop like no other ride can. For the younger set, Tommy Knocker Playland offers climbing structures for unleashing one’s inner mountain goat and a fabulous carousel to spin all your cares away. And don’t miss out on the new water clock by the visitor center, too. It’s absolutely fascinating!
You can bring lunch from home for enjoying at one of the many picnic areas — or you can leave the cooking to the folks at Café 1230 or the Bridge View BBQ (sometimes you can smell that tasty goodness all the way across the bridge!). Both have hearty and light options, so no one will leave unsatisfied. Oh, and there’s also the Cliff Side patio, where you can enjoy sweet snacks like slushies and cotton candy or adult beverages.
The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park is also known for its summer concert series, Park After Dark. Rock, funk, country … you’ll find several different artists and genres gracing the stage each season and you’ll love grooving under the stars with all your new, music-loving best friends.
Head out and make a day of it. You won’t be sorry you visited the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park — and you certainly won’t be bored!
Coming Soon: Via Ferrata, aka The Iron Road, a horizontal climbing trail on the canyon walls! Summer 2019.
