This Summer Is Your Last Chance To Visit Arizona’s Most Popular Roadside Attraction Before It’s Gone Forever
Most of us grew up watching The Flintstones on Saturday mornings and were delighted to discover an entire theme park dedicated to the prehistoric characters. Sadly, Bedrock City is closing for good at the end of this summer — but not before one last hurrah.
Since 1972, Fred Flintstone has welcomed thousands of tourists to his prehistoric town. Bedrock City was sold and shut down in January of this year, but popular demand led the owner to open the theme park for one last hurrah this summer.
All the building are pretty much exact replicas from the show. Take a walk down memory lane and reminisce on everyone's favorite childhood cartoon.
Race around the track, using strategically-placed bones as your guiding posts. Drive right underneath a volcano and hope it won't erupt before you come out the other side.
After burning all that rubber, you'll definitely need to stop for gas. The only question is what kind of fuel — will it be Regular or Dino Supreme?
Ditch the car for a little while and take a tour of Fred's humble abode. See where he eats, sleeps, brushes his teeth... maybe there'll even be a stray box of Fruity Pebbles in the pantry!
Cavemen go to school just like everyone else! Learn all the ins and outs of life as a barbarian and see if you're cut out for it. Just look at how enthusiastic these pupils are! Star students, for sure.
Before heading out, don't forget to stop by the movie theater! Although dreary rock walls and metal benches might not make for the most pleasant viewing experience, nobody can say it isn't realistic!
By far the most popular attraction among little ones, in particular, Dino is hiding a ridiculously fun secret. Though he isn't able to lower his neck so you can scramble on up, there is another way for visitors to climb the friendly reptile.
Surprise — his tail is actually a slide! Kids and kids at heart alike are sure to have a blast flying through the dusty, bone-dry desert air.
Address: 101 US-180, Williams, AZ 86046
Hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday until the end of summer. Admission is $5 per person.
