Each year, more than 100,000 travelers from around the world experience the natural beauty of the Royal Gorge aboard Colorado’s first and finest scenic streamliner – the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. This grand Colorado train takes guests on an epic and culinary adventure along the tumbling waters of the legendary Arkansas River deep within the granite cliffs of the Royal Gorge.
Classes of service hark back to a time when travel was an elegant and leisurely affair and have earned the Royal Gorge Route its reputation as one of the premier passenger excursion trains in the country. In fact, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad was recently named one of the Top 8 Train Rides in America by Trains magazine.
Choose from classic coach and vista dome seating with a la carte food and drink or inspired seasonal multi-course menus paired with sommelier appointed wine lists upon Royal Gorge Route’s lunch train, wine lover’s train, dinner train, or murder mystery train.
Whatever seat you choose, be sure to enjoy your favorite cocktail in the newly renovated bar car before visiting the open-air car for a 360-degree view, where you might spot a bald eagle, blue heron, or even a bighorn sheep.
The Royal Gorge Route Railroad is located just 45 minutes southwest of Colorado Springs and less than 2 hours southwest of Denver.
