Just 1.5 hours from Colorado Springs is The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, which is unlike any destination you’ll ever experience . A journey of epic proportions with more than 360 acres and 21 rides, shows and attractions to explore. Where families and friends alike will marvel at the awe-inspiring panoramic views from one of the world’s highest suspension bridges – hanging 956 feet (over 291 metres) high and spanning across the canyon.
But whether you’re looking to sightsee, have an adventure, go on a family vacation or a day trip, this one-of-a-kind attraction has something for everyone.
For those more adventuresome don’t miss the famed Royal Rush Skycoaster, the most awesome adrenaline rush in the state of Colorado. Imagine a free-fall tower sweeping you 50 mph (over 80 kilometres per hour) to hang momentarily over 1,200 feet (over 365 metres) above the Arkansas River, which looks like a tiny blue line far, far below.
The Royal Rush Skycoaster is one of only 87 in the world, and was recently named the scariest Skycoaster of them all. There's no better way to add a little adventure to your Colorado vacation!
