This Abandoned ‘Flintstones’ Theme Park In Arizona Is Full Of Creepy Nostalgia





The Flintstones was a show that portrayed the life of a modern Stone Age family. Residing in Bedrock, Fred Flintstone worked an unsatisfying quarry job but always looked forward to get back home and spend time with his lovely wife Wilma and daughter Pebbles. Although the final episode of The Flintstones aired in 1966, the show’s popularity kept it rolling through several channels for many decades. We are all familiar with the show since we grew up watching it. The vintage cartoon about life in the stone age was an inspiration for many theme parks. Many of them closed down but there’s one that is still operating 364 days a year and is used as an RV park and campground for tourists and temporary visitors.

Bedrock City opened in 1972 and continues today as a 364-day-a-year campground and RV park.

Back in the day, live “Flintstones” characters roamed the park to recreate life from the classic cartoon. As the years progressed, the park’s isolated location finally took a toll on its appearance.

Many of the employees had to be laid down due to the rapid decrease in visitors.

The 30-acre property is currently for sale and is listed for $2 million.

Now, just the buildings and a few attractions remain from the park’s glory days. The property comes with a gift shop, restaurant, convenience store, RV park and campground, all with a prehistoric theme.

Visitors can walk around the park and witness the brightly colored buildings that look like they are carved out of stone.

For many years now, the eerie and almost entirely empty park has served as one of America’s weirdest roadside attractions.
