RV Day 2

2 April 2015

Today we visited the Royal Gorge. This was special and I really liked it. There was a fired at the Royal Gorge in 2013 and it burnt down 48 of the 52 structures including the aerial tram, an antique carousel as well as the visitors centre. The bridge itself suffered minor damage to its wooden planks. They have since rebuilt part of the park and we went on the aerial tram which was a little scary because you were at the top of the gorge which is 1,200 feel below. We had a look at the other side and saw the zip rider and the royal rush sky coaster. We came back on the shuttle bus across the bridge and leant they are going to build a theatre and children's play park (including rock wall). There are also going to rebuild the western town (the driver said they had gun fights in the street) and a bridge view BBQ restaurant. At the end we went on the Silver Rock Railway which is a scale model of an old 424 locomotive from 1893. We got to see Yellowstone (whish was a yellow painted rock), Petticoat Junction (a watertower with petty coats hanging from it, Deadwood (a stack of dead wood) and my favourite was Little Rock and Boulder (a stone sitting on a boulder). It was a funny trip. We all agreed we would like to return when it's finished being rebuilt because it would be a cool place to visit.
