MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– After more than 3 years, the Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway is once again running up Pikes Peak. After a few years on pause to replace the tracks and train cars, the railway is getting ready to reopen.
Tickets are $58 for adults and $48 for children under 12. Crews are installing the new coaches and tracks as part of the $100 million renovation in Manitou Springs to take passengers to the summit of Pikes Peak at 14,115 feet altitude. The first ride of the season was Thursday.
It’s a 9-mile trip to the top and a 3-hour round trip.
The railway urges riders to purchase tickets in advance. The new visitors center at the summit of Pikes Peak will open next month.
