It is also a possibility to zip in the morning and raft in the afternoon if your schedule requires. You choose what Royal Gorge zip line tour works best for your group.

The Royal Gorge whitewater rafting trip is for the adventurous only. It boasts class III and IV rapids on the Arkansas River, winding through the heart of the Royal Gorge and under the famous Royal Gorge Bridge. You’ll be humbled as you paddle down the river, between two thousand foot cliffs. You’ll be in a raft with a trained and certified whitewater rafting guide, paddling along with the guide’s commands through rapids such as Sunshine Falls, Sledgehammer, and Boat Eater. 

Zip Line Colorado

Adventures Out West is located in Manitou Springs, just 10 minutes west of Colorado Springs. The tour includes a half mile jeep ride from the parking area to the start of the course and of course a safety orientation and practice zip. Then it’s time to start zipping! Nestled at the edge of a canyon, the course includes 5 cables (you get to do the longest and fastest zips twice) and a “Leap of Faith”. On the “Leap of Faith”, you choose whether you’d like to run and jump over the edge or slowly stroll over. Regardless of the rush you’re looking for, this Colorado Springs zip line course is simply beautiful and it’s a good time for everyone.

This trip includes a morning Royal Gorge family train ride right along the Arkansas River and an afternoon rafting trip along that same river! This trip gives you both the perspective of the Royal Gorge from the relaxing comfort of your train car and the wet and wild perspective of the river from the edge of a raft. And trust us, the rapids feel much bigger than they look.

Royal Gorge Family Train Ride

We offer a few different trip combinations with this premium package. First off, you’ll meet us at our Echo Canyon headquarters outside of Canon City. We’ll then shuttle you down to the train where you’ll begin your ride through the legendary Royal Gorge. You’ll be dwarfed by the thousand foot cliffs on either side of you, and by the engineering feat that is the Royal Gorge Bridge. And you may even see some whitewater rafting action on the river. We’ll then shuttle you back to Echo and the 8 Mile Bar and Grill where you’ll have some time to eat lunch and get energized for your afternoon rafting adventure.

When making your reservation, your first decision will be whether you’d like to ride in Coach-class, where you’ll have access to snacks and an open –air train car, or in the Vista Dome, where you’ll enjoy delicious food and a 360 degree view through the curved window. You then have a choice of three different rafting excursions: the Family Float, the Bighorn Sheep Canyon, or the Royal Gorge. Whether you’re looking for a mild and relaxing float, a beginner to intermediate whitewater rafting trip, or a full blown Royal Gorge rafting and train ride combo, you’ve come to the right place.

We can’t wait to take you on a Royal Gorge family adventure! Call us at 800-755-3246 to reserve your spot today!
