Explore The Royal Gorge

There’s nothing quite like a twilight ride aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad while enjoying Dinner in the Royal Gorge.

Enjoy our three-course First Class Dinner Train experience aboard our Club Car or Vista Dome, where you’ll begin with a beautiful mixed green salad, followed by a fantastic main course of your choosing. We complete the experience with a chef’s choice dessert you’ll love. For those who dine in Vista Dome, we’ll begin the evening off right with a complementary glass of sparkling wine!

We invite you to pair your dinner with wines from our Conductor’s List or by the glass, Colorado micro-brews or your favorite cocktails from our full-service bar in every class of service.

If you’re in the mood for a more casual dinner in the Royal Gorge, you’re invited to dine with us aboard Vista Dome, Club or Coach and order your favorites from the 403 Grill.

Throughout the journey, wander out to our open observation car any time to enjoy the 360° views of the Arkansas River, geological formations of the gorge, and historic sites while the wind carries echoes of an era gone by.
