CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park is opening for its first full season since a 2013 wildfire destroyed 90 percent of its structures.

The Canon City Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1FQBY0v ) that the park will showcase new rides and attractions during a grand reopening that starts Friday and will run through the weekend. The park reopened in August 2014.

The Royal Gorge Fire started June 11, 2013 and burned more than 3,000 acres. It also destroyed 48 of the park’s 52 buildings, but left the bridge nearly unscathed.

New attractions include a zip line that travels 2,400 feet across the Royal Gorge, an aerial tramway and a roller coaster.

Prices through May 22 are $21 for adults, $15 for children ages 4-11, and free for children 3 and under.
