Abandoned Flintstones Theme Park Is Equal Parts Nostalgic And Creepy

We all have our favorite television shows. But no matter how much you may love it, do you really want to live in that world?  Think before you give an answer. It’s probably not as cool in real life as it is on TV.

Take Bedrock City as a shining example of this.

For those that don’t know, Bedrock City was the attempt to bring The Flintstones to life in an interactive theme park experience. Seeing as you’ve probably never heard of it, you can guess the unfortunate fate of this idea. Thankfully, the memory lives on through hundreds of creepy pictures.

You Can Still Visit Bedrock City

If this article inspired you, then you’re in luck. Bedrock city may be forgotten, but it’s far from gone. You can still visit Bedrock City 364 days a year (even the Flintstones celebrate Christmas). So what can you expect when you lug your friends and family all the way to the middle of Arizona?

Well, don’t expect much.

Essentially, Bedrock city is just a life-size version of the television show but a little more depressing. You see, Bedrock city opened back in 1972 with a promising dream of bringing happiness to diehard fans of Fred Flinstone and company. However, due to its isolated location, the majority of the employees were let go.

Along with the employees went most of the fun. You won’t find any cool rides, dancing, costumed characters or fried food here. No, all you’ll find are the broken dreams of a failed idea. That doesn’t mean it’s not interesting, though.

Just check out these pictures. You can slide down the brontosaurus tail just like Fred did and you can even walk inside a real replica of the Flinstone homestead.  If you’re really lucky, you can even catch a ride on the Fredmobile Tram, operated by one of the last remaining employees.
