Day Trip to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park

The Royal Gorge Bridge is the highest suspension bridge in North America, and because of this it is often called “America’s Bridge”.

This 360-acre amusement park sits 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River and features nearly 20 different things to do and see.

The Royal Gorge Gondola is free to ride and is included with your Royal Gorge Bridge tickets. The Cloudscraper ZipRider zipline, however, costs an additional fee.

1. Cross the bridge

Strap in and get ready to be pushed out over the gorge at 1,200 feet above the floor, with nothing but the open air below.

2. Ride the Skycoaster

This mountaineering adventure allows for safe and protected rock climbing using hand and foot holds.

3. Go rock climbing

Grab a seat and learn about the history of the bridge and surrounding park from 1929, as well as some fun facts.

The Tommy Knocker Playland is the perfect stop for kids of all ages. The three-story playground is accompanied by a large carousel and a splash pad.
