Royal Gorge Bridge and Park fights back against fake news

FREMONT COUNTY, Colo. — Colorado’s Royal Gorge Bridge and Park is trying to put the rumor mill to rest.

Officials said a post on the fake news site React365.com over the weekend said the park was closing June 1. The post was shared thousands of times, so now officials are doing damage control to stop the rumor from spreading any further.

“We are open 365 days a year for at least another 90 years,” a park official said.

This year, the park has new additions to the children’s playland, Tommy Knockerland. Children can pan for gold, ride the carousel, climb three-story towers and play on the splash pad.
