Royal Gorge Bridge & Park
No personal vehicles will be allowed on the Bridge at any time. Pre-scheduled car clubs may be given an exception. If you have a car club and would like more information, please call 719.276-8320.
The Park is open year-round (weather permitting), even on holidays. Rides and attractions open 10AM. Closing times vary depending on season. During peak tourist season, all attractions are open. During off-season, attractions are limited.
The easiest route through the Park starts at the Aerial Gondolas on the north rim – at the Visitor Center. Ride those to the south side, then walk down to the Bridge.
Looking for some high-altitude rides on the Zip Line or Skycoaster? Get here early to skip the wait times and start soaring.
There are some uneven areas in the Park, so be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes.
The Park is at an altitude of 6,700 feet and in an arid region, so keep hydrated and slather on some sunscreen, even in winter.
Speaking of winter, the Park is 8-10° warmer than Denver and Colorado Springs. And there is always a breeze in the middle of the bridge, year-round.
Colorado weather is unpredictable, and afternoon rainstorms are common. If rain rolls in, temporary ride closures may occur. Refunds will not be given for these closures.
Yes, the Park is handicap accessible, but please be careful on the steep trails you may find throughout the Park.
Gondolas and the Theater are wheelchair accessible. The South gondola platform does not have a handicap ramp, so guests with wheelchairs will need to ride the gondola round trip.
Rides, such as the Skycoaster and Zip Line, have additional restrictions concerning height, weight, and physical ability.
