If you're looking for suspense while getting one of the best views in Colorado, then visit the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. While on the bridge and walking on the trails in the area, you have magnificent views of the mountains and the river below the bridge. There are a few activities held each year that offer a bit of excitement for the family.
The suspension bridge is one of the highest in the world. It's a simple bridge that spans across the river. It's not for the faint of heart as it sometimes feels like you are walking on air. The bridge is safe, but it is very high. There are a few rides at the park for children and adults to enjoy. The children's playground features a carousel, climbing area with ropes and nets and a fun maze. The Royal Rush Skycoaster is for the thrill seeker. You fly 50 mph through the air while suspended in a harness. If you can open your eyes, you will have a unique look at the gorge and the mountains. Boo at the Bridge is a fun event where the family can enjoy treats and games. Circus characters walk along the bridge and in the park, providing fun photo opportunities.
