Royal Gorge Bridge and Park
The Royal Gorge is a canyon on the Arkansas River. It is located near the city of Canon City, Colorado. In 1929 the city authorized the construction of the Royal Gorge Bridge at a point where the canyon cliffs are 1053 feet above the Arkansas River. The site has now grown to include several other features of interest to thrill seekers. It encompasses some 360 acres and 21 rides. These include but are not limited to the world's highest suspension bridge, the world's longest single span aerial tram and the steepest incline railway. The park is open all year round. Peak season runs from the end of April to the end of September with off season running the rest of the year. Adult admission is $23 with children 4 to 11 years of age $19. It is possible to get a bridge only pass however the hours for this are between 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 1/2 hour before the park closes until dusk. The park opens at 10:00 a.m. but closing hours vary by the point in the season. They vary from 4 p.m. during off season to 7 p.m. during peak season.
