Royal Gorge Bridge and Park
The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park has proven the test of time as a great attraction for all ages. Experience the breathtaking views, exhilarating thrills, and historical treasures that abound in this 360-acre natural wonder. Walk on air across America's highest suspension bridge, strung just under 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River. Take in stunning views from the largest single-span Aerial Tram swinging over the gorge or from the world's steepest incline railway as you descend to the bottom of the canyon.
One of the newer additions to the park is guaranteed to give you Colorado's biggest adrenaline rush. The Royal Rush Skycoaster releases harnessed riders from a 100-foot tower and swings out over the Royal Gorge, momentarily suspending you 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River! Thrill seekers will love the free-fall, plummeting up to 50 miles per hour with nothing but air between them and the canyon floor!
The Soaring Eagle Zip Line, the highest zip line in the world, opened in the Spring of 2012. Perched on the 1,000 foot granite wall on the northside of the bridge, the ride consists of two zip lines carrying two riders each, and will zip 700 feet over canyon walls from 1,000 to 800 feet above the Arkansas River, and then zip back at approximately 30 miles per hour. Unlike a typical canopy type zipline tour, riders are secured into a "chair" that gives guests freedom of movement for the arms and legs. This ride is very family friendly and is a perfect thrill ride to enhance the wonderful experiences that the Park already has to offer.
