Opened in the summer of 2016, the Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience provides plenty of insight to the dinosaurs that once roamed around what's now Cañon City and the Royal Gorge Region. In addition to full-scale fossil casts, hands-on exhibits and 16 different life-size animatronic dinosaurs, two ropes courses — a three-story option and a scaled-back version for little ones — provide plenty of thrills.
