Beautiful train ride along the rapids of the Arkansas River. Gorgeous views of a roaring river with white water rafters paddling by, mountain views and historic landmarks. Multiple types of rail cars to include great food and beverages. Open air car to go out and enjoy the ride and take pictures. Most of all an extended stop to enjoy the Royal Gorge Bridge.

This train ride is extremely enjoyable. Wait staff was excellent. We loved the atmosphere of the train and enjoyed the open air car after we ate. Food was also very tasty. We highly recommend this trip. It takes just about two hours.

This was a great way to see the Canyon and the Royal Gorge from a different view! We placed our ticket order online and then went to Will Call to pick up our tickets, it was a nice, easy process. They tell you where to board the train and even have a photographer there to take a souvenir photo to purchase if you would like. The train cars were nice and clean and the staff was friendly. You can walk out to the open air car and take photos too! This was a special treat and a nice relaxing ride! Would highly recommend to anyone coming to this area!

This train is the smoothest ride you'll ever take on a standard gauge train. We bought coach tickets but spent the entire two hour trip on the open air gondola car...stood the whole time but it was fantastic. We are photographers so if you want pix go to the furthest car away from the engine...and bring that wide angle lens!

We went on the 3:30 train ride in a Vista Dome car. Our whole family (kids ages 5, 8, and 10) thoroughly enjoyed this ride. The service in our car was very good, although the menu prices were a bit high in my opinion. We went in the open air car when we passed under the Royal Gorge Bridge which was really neat. With the bridge and park being closed, I thought this was a neat way to view the area.
