The Royal Gorge Bridge is a tourist attraction near Cañon City, Colorado, within Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, a 360-acre (150 ha) theme park. The bridge deck crosses the Royal Gorge 955 feet (291 m) above the Arkansas River, and held the record of highest bridge in the world from 1929 until 2001, when it was surpassed by the Liuguanghe Bridge in China. The Royal Gorge Bridge continued as the world's highest suspension bridge until the Beipan River Guanxing Highway Bridge was completed in 2003, also in China. The bridge remains the highest bridge in the United States and was among the ten highest bridges in the world until 2012. The main span of the bridge is 880 feet (270 m) while the total length is 1,260 feet (384 m) and the width is 18 feet (5.5 m), with a wooden walkway with 1292 planks. The bridge is suspended from towers that are 150 feet (46 m) high.
