We rode the early train ride through the Royal Gorge canyon. We ordered breakfast and it was fantastic! We rode the dome car to the half-way point and rode in the open car back. Highly recommend!

Loved the old time feel with the 30s/40s music. Majestic views and a trip back in time. The staff did a wonderful job and the open air car is really cool.

We rode the train after visiting the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. Doing both in the same day was a great way to see the Gorge from 2 very different perspectives. Our kids, ages 10-14, enjoyed both the Bridge/Park and the train ride. The open...More
