CANON CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – Royal Gorge employees are showing their team spirit for the Denver Broncos, but they’re also excited about opening the park for bridge tours in just six weeks.

The park lost 48 of 52 buildings and there was minor damage to the bridge during the Royal Gorge Fire last June.

The park is expected to open Phase I of the rebuild in August. It will include a new visitor center, aerial tram and several other attractions.
