Royal Rush Skycoaster

The Royal Rush Skycoaster is one the most awesome adrenaline rushes in the state of Colorado.  Imagine a free-fall sweeping you 50 mph to hang momentarily over 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River. You’ll have bragging rights with all your friends as the Royal Rush was named the world’s scariest skycoaster. There is no better way to add a little adventure to your Colorado vacation!
