    They had a fire back in 2013, but they're making a great comeback from it. Go show them some love! But ride the gondola across first, then walk back toward the Visitor Center. Or else it's ALL uphill.

    Amazing. $23 for GA for most people (cheaper for seniors, military, and kids). That does not include the zip line or the coaster but it does include the gondola!

    Don't go on the rocks! The park ranger will freak out on you from his golf cart. Lol price is outrageous to walk across a bridge. Just drive up and look out at it from your feet. Neat experience.

    The lookouts over the gorge are amazing. Bridge-walking is a must, but don't look down! Well, do look down, but be prepared to realize just how high you are above the canyon floor!

    Great little park. The team and incline rail are included in park ticket. The zip line and sky coaster are extra, but so awesome! We had a fun, family day!

    My husband and I went water rafting under the bridge and were intrigued, so we went up for a visit. It is truly a work of art... Make sure you're not afraid of heights!

    The view is fantastic! The bridge is lined with state flags, find yours and grab a selfie! Lots of walking, bring water, try all the attractions!

    About as close as you can get without paying $20+ per person to walk across and catch a gondola. Amazing views but way overpriced for the experience. Mixed feelings about this because of price.

    Still closed! Don't bother calling for information either. I did find a spot to see the Gorge by the picnic area, but you have to walk down quite a bit!

    Go during october and its off season. Tickets are almost half price. Bring a picnic drive across the bridge and go up and sit under the crazy people slingshoting themselves above Gorge.

    Have your video camera ready for the first time your family member or friend looks through the spacing between each plank!

    Not cheap ($23 general admission) but it's also quite a unique place. Worth a visit for sure!

    This was awesome, riding the in the rail car across the bridge, the vertical train was aweing, it put everything in perspective on how tiny we were compared to our surroundings. Get the fudge! Read more

    The bridge is closed until spring but you can still drive to see the canyon. You can also see the river & bridge.

    Cross America’s highest suspension bridge, then navigate the rapids right through the gorge on a whitewater raft trip, or slide along treetop cables with Royal Gorge Zip-Line Tours.

    Breathtaking views, with zip lining across the gorge ... Plan on spending the whole day there... 2 hours is not enough!

    The nature is quite impressive but the entry fee is definitely overpriced. The black canyon of the Gunnison is not that far away, cheaper and even more scenic

    It costs 25$ per person to be in your vehicle to cross the bridge.(they do have a special right now) You are just paying for an outdoor in the nature amusement/theme park. This was a disappointment a

    Currently closed due to a fire which burned most of the buildings and attractions. Planning to rebuild, but will be at least a year before reopening.

    There's an overlook on the far side of the bridge that lets you get an amazing view of the gorge and bridge.

    Unless you want to spend 26 dollars to walk the bridge, stop at the flags, walk to the viewing area and take pictures there

    If you ride the tram, be careful of emergency stops. You just might s*** your pants a little.

    Watch out - it costs $25 per person to get in to the amusement park where the bridge is. There is no way to just visit the bridge and gorge. What a scam.

    The Royal Gorge suspension bridge can support an excess of 2 million pounds.

    $25 admission fee is not cheap, but there are plenty of things included in the price of admission. The most important: don't miss taking the train that takes you to the bottom of the canyon.

    Tourist trap. Avoid it, not worth your time or money (expensive also)
