ROYAL GORGE BRIDGE
Celebrating its 90th Anniversary, the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park is home to spectacular views, thrill-seeker attractions, and

26 million visitors since it’s opening in 1929. Generation upon generation have returned with their families to create special
memories at this natural Colorado attraction, ranking it as one of the premier attractions in the state
Today, the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, just 10 miles outside of Canon City, provides all kinds of adventures! Check out the
Visitor Center and its massive deck to show off every angle of the Royal Gorge. The park offers everything from shopping,
food, fun, “high-fl ying” attractions and live entertainment this summer.
Thrill adventures include America’s highest zip line. The Cloudscraper ZipRider sends guests soaring 2,400 feet across the
Royal Gorge, and the Royal Rush Skycoaster “swings” guests out and over the Royal Gorge 1,200 feet above the river.

aerial gondolas take guests across the Royal
Gorge. Tommy Knockerland is a children’s
paradise with a 3-story climbing structure,
carousel, splash pad, wax hands, and sluice
box. The Plaza Theater and Historical Expo
has exhibits and a fi lm showing the beginning
of the Royal Gorge from the dinosaur
era to the building of the Royal Gorge Bridge
through present day.
