'Flintstones' Bedrock City Theme Park, Campground Listed for $2M
"Yabba dabba doo!"
For Flintstones fans that want to live in a real-life "Yabba dabba-doo!" land, a $2 million package deal is available.
Located 30 miles south of the Grand Canyon, Bedrock City is a Flintstones theme park and campground in Williams, Ariz., that is up for sale, ABC News reported. The family-owned business was established in 1972 and has a gift shop, restaurant, RV park and convenience store with the potential for buyers to build a casino, resort or outlet mall on the 30 acres, according to the brochure.
"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," said Holly Hulen of why her mother wants to sell the Flintstones theme park.
Hulen said that the license agreement with Hanna-Barbera, the studio behind the cartoon, is not included in the sale and would need to be renegotiated by the new purchaser.
A similar Bedrock City in South Dakota opened in 1966 and is managed by Hulen's distant cousin, according to ABC News. Her grandfather and father worked for the South Dakota property prior to establishing the Arizona attraction.
The brochure also states that the "Property includes a 3,800 sq. foot residential housing that offers two separate living areas, two kitchens, four bedrooms complete with vanity sinks, and two and a half baths. This would provide excellent employee housing."
