|You must make your own reservations if you would like to experience a train ride in the "Grand Canyon of the Arkansas" (The one on the Left above, lucky you.)
If you are arriving early, or staying late, you will enjoy the Royal Gorge Route train ride. They offer 3-daily departures at: 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00. Ticket prices are $26.95 for adults and $16.50 for children ages 3-12. If you wish to experience this train ride that has been termed "The most spectacular 12 miles of railroad in America," we strongly recommend making advance reservations to secure your seat aboard The Royal Gorge Route.
The Royal Gorge Route follows the most famous portion of the old Denver & Rio Grande Western train line, 24 miles round-trip, from Canon City to Parkdale and return. The two hour train ride takes passengers through the "Grand Canyon of the Arkansas" on an unforgettable journey over the famous Hanging bridge, which clings precariously to the steep granite walls of the Royal Gorge, towering over 1,000 feet above.
You may call: 1-888-RAILS-4U or 1-303-569-2403. Please plan on arriving one hour prior to your scheduled departure to pick-up your reserved tickets. Delicious BBQ, refreshments, Espresso Coffee and other food items are available at the Santa Fe Depot with seating for 100 on our spacious patio. Food, beer and wine are available on-board the train.

THESE ARE PRETTY GOOD
|See one of Colorado’s most historic mining towns and enjoy a few hours of gambling. The meals are excellent and very reasonable.
If you would be interested in taking a bus to Cripple Creek, please send a message to Rally Reservation, where you mailed your other reservations, and let them know what day you would like to go. A bus can be arranged to pick you up at the Fairgrounds if a sufficient number of people show an interest. A small charge may be made, but this is normally returned to you at the casino in Cripple Creek.
Cripple Creek, Colorado, is one of three cities in the state approved for limited-stakes gambling. State voters approved gambling here in November 1990, almost exactly 100 years after Bob Womack discovered gold in Poverty Gulch (now Cripple Creek).
