Best Family-Fun Activities for the Little Ones

We work hard to make the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park a memorable experience for people of all ages. Between the Tommy Knocker Playland, delicious foods, and life-changing views we have something for everyone.

Seriously, we’re sure kiddos of all ages will enjoy a trip to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park.

They’ll surely light up when they hop aboard the Silver Rock Railway mini train. Included with admission, the one-mile route on these open-air cars is a chance for the whole family to sit back before taking on the day. Be sure to hit the restrooms just inside the new Visitor Center before enjoying all the rides and adventure.

Stop by the Water Clock for a lesson on time and mechanics before climbing inside the new aerial gondolas for a scenic trip across the Royal Gorge, also included with admission. Stroll over to the Plaza Theater for some history on the man-made wonder of the Royal Gorge Bridge and the Royal Gorge Region. Throughout the summer months, talented aerial performer April Vollm and the magic of Christian Augustine mesmerize. Check out more of our upcoming events.

There’s no better way to stretch growing legs and burn off some energy than on the new giant Children’s Playland — Tommy Knocker Playland. Laughter and games are guaranteed on this two-story structure with ropes, slides, nets, and even a maze. For a small fee, a great memento can be created inside the wax hand shop. The splash pad is a great way to cool down on a warm summer day. Everyone can pick their favorite horse on the beautiful new vintage-style carousel for 360-degree views.

Once your kids have had their fill, cross the Royal Gorge Bridge on the way back to the Visitor Center. Make sure they find their state flag and plaque to grab a necessary snapshot for the scrapbook.

Too tired to make the trek back? Grab the people mover back to home base. There’s plenty to keep everyone busy and don’t forget, littles under three get in for free. Discounted admission can also be purchased online prior to arriving.
