If you loved ‘The Flintstones’ and always dreamed on one day owning a theme park, you may be in luck. Bedrock City, a Flintstones-based theme park and campground, is up for sale in Williams, Arizona.
Located 30 miles south of the Grand Canyon, Bedrock City opened in 1972. The 30-acre property has Flintstones sculptures, a green brontosaurus slide, a train ride that goes through a fake volcano named Mt. St. Wilma, a 3,800-square-foot residential housing, gift shops, restaurant and an RV park.
According to the brochure, redeveloping the theme park has the potential for casinos, resorts, or outlet malls. Maybe even Slate Rock and Gravel can employ their dinosaurs to help with the construction.
Linda Speckels and her husband built and operated the theme park, an offshoot of Bedrock City in Custer, South Dakota. Speckels’ daughter, Holly Hulen explained to ABC News why it was time to sell the property.
“My mother is 73 and she and my father built that business. My father passed away over 20 years ago. She’s been running it herself, and she’s ready to retire. She’s ready to enjoy her grandkids and not worry about managing a business.”
The offer price is $2 million dollars. Yabba dada doo!
