We’ve seen a lot of unique ideas when it comes to holiday light displays over the last few years, but this one might take the cake… A drive-thru experience on America’s highest suspension bridge.

Starting later this month, the Royal Gorge Bride in Canon City will become a drive-thru holiday lights display for the first time ever.

Guests will be able to drive across the bridge, which sits about 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River, to view thousands of lights.

According to a press release, “Bridge of Lights will give every guest the opportunity to not only drive across America’s Bridge, but to do so at night while enjoying the wonder of the season through beautiful light displays. Holiday music will be playing throughout the drive on the park-wide sound system. The Park will showcase thousands of lights leading to and from the centerpiece of the event, the Royal Gorge Bridge; an experience sure to become a time-honored Christmas tradition.”

The event will run from 5:30-9:30 PM on November 18-27, December 1-4, 8-11, and 15-31 (with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day).

At the gate, tickets will cost $40 per car and include free hot cocoa or cider, a souvenir cup, and and holiday cookies.
