Colorado Rafting at it’s Best!
Two exciting attractions in one fun and easy day! Combine a half-day Colorado white water rafting trip through the Arkansas River’s Bighorn Sheep Canyon with an afternoon at North America’s highest suspension bridge: the Royal Gorge Bridge. A family-class rafting float trip starts your day off with miles of scenery and a chance of spotting Bighorn Sheep grazing the banks of the river. This package offers a family-friendly Colorado rafting trip at it’s best. You’ll raft approximately 6 miles of the Arkansas River and encounter class II-III rapids – fun for all ages and experience levels. After your white water rafting trip, you may wish to grab a bite to eat at our conveniently located restaurant – 8 Mile Bar & Grill – before embarking on the second half of your adventure.
Royal Gorge Bridge – Enjoy at Your Pace
A short four-mile drive from our office takes you to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, where you can enjoy the entire park at your leisure. Included in your admission to the park are the new aerial gondolas, theater shows, expansive Children’s Playland (including a vintage carousel, slide complex, splash pad, and playground toys), numerous scenic vistas, tram ride, and mini-train. Newly renovated since a fire in 2013, the park boasts all-new attractions with over $30 million in improvements! If you haven’t been in a few years, you’ll wonder at all the changes being made to this world-class attraction. As always, the Royal Gorge Bridge stands at the center of the park, offering views of the canyon and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the distance – an unparalleled panorama. Children will love participating in the Park’s Junior Ranger program, where they’ll explore the park and receive a special prize at the end of your day!
Want More Excitement?
For an added fee, you can also brave the Royal Rush Sky Coaster or the thrilling Cloud Scraper Zipline. There isn’t another zipline like it in the world, as it sends you flying over the entire span of the 1,000-foot-deep Royal Gorge. (Age limits apply.) If you are interested in more Colorado rafting excitement by upgrading the rafting portion of your trip to an adventure-class section of river, please call us before making your reservation and we can help find the package for you!
