My experience is as a solo and so it may be a little more expansive and more to the point. I thought this trip would be a good experience and be able to kill a couple of birds with one stone so to speak.. I parked the car in the parking lot adjacent to the ride, which was full of... More

We took this last weekend and did the lunchtime tour. We chose the Vista Class dome primarily for the views. There were four of us and we had a booth and were able to order off a menu. They served pretty much sandwiches and hamburgers. The food was surprisingly excellent. We had great service from Johnny & he was very... More

Amazing and magical adventure!!! The boys had a blast and loved it!!! They were safe and contained, so were able to run free in our train car. Santa Claus came through to visit and the looks on their faces was priceless!!!

The train ride altogether is one hour down the track and another hour back to depot. The only thing that I was disappointed with was the route. Other than that the train runs by the river the whole time and passes under the Royal Gorge bridge which is cool. They have observing cars that allow you to watch the scenery... More

We bought tickets on line in the club car which I recommend. You have a table to eat at & nice clean windows. The dome car windows were extremely dirty. I'm glad I didn't pay extra for the view. It's about two hours round trip. Very relaxing, great views. We had a fruit salad which was very good& local wine.... More

I love trains and this is one of the coolest ever! The train goes threw the canyon and under the royal gorge bridge. You can go inside or outside the train during the ride. But I personally think trains are fun in general so I highly recommend this activity!

Brought 4 boys (ages 6-13) and at the end of the week, it's that train ride that they're still talking about. We got seats in the vista dome. So glad we did . Worth every penny. We road one way for 50 minutes, got off for 20 minutes, then rode back. The kids just loved their lunch (which came quickly)... More

It doesn't matter which car you are in. We chose the dome car because we didn't want to miss out on the views. What you must do is be in the open air car as it travels through the Royal Gorge area. It will be take your breath away!
