I really wanted to go pull out my paints and freshen up the place a bit. It was a little sad to see it in such disrepair. But as a roadside attraction, this park is going the way of old Route 66 and will be a memory in the very near future.
Yes, I do love a good photo opp.
Inside of each of the concrete replicas of Bedrock City were dusty concrete furnishings. I am sure that they were more detailed at one time, but with age, dust and a bit of vandalism, the insides were sparse and dark.
Personally, I love these types of road side attractions. And I am very glad we were able to stop here and see this one before it is gone. The family who has owned this property for the past 44 years has put it up for sale. For the sum of 2 million dollars, this property could be yours!
Since the Hannah-Barbera license is not transferrable, the new owner would not be able to continue with the Flintstones theme.
(Not that kids of this generation would even know who the Flintstones are).
That means that in the near future, this will probably be a casino, a gas station or an outlet mall. After more than four decades, this unique roadside attraction will be gone.
I find that a little sad. I asked Dave to lend me $2 million. He said he left his money in his other pants…
If you get a chance to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon, be sure to check out this kitchy amusement park from the past before it is gone for good. Located right on route 64, about 30 minutes from Grand Canyon National Park.
