4 Reasons This Unique Theme Park In Arizona Will Have You Feeling Like A Kid Again Arizona

#1 Who doesn’t love a good theme park?

And not just any theme park, but one that transports you back to the days of your childhood — a glorious time where responsibilities were few and having fun was always your main priority. For anyone who remembers settling in front of the television to watch Fred Flintstone slide down the back of a dinosaur and foot pedal his car to work and home each day, a visit to this theme park will truly have you feeling like a kid again. Luckily, even if you don’t have kids of your own to bring along and share this classic cartoon with, no one will judge you for turning up at this kitschy theme park on your own. Each year, plenty of visitors drop by to spend a day at this non-judgmental attraction where everyone is free to be a kid again.

#2 Where else can you say you slid down the tail of a dinosaur?

That’s right! In true Fred Flintstone style, the park has a slide that offers you the chance to coast down the curve of a Brontosaurus tail just as Fred did in the intro to each episode. And not only that, but you’ll be able to get a picture with any of the characters from the show that you could possibly name. Spend the day wandering around the cartoon city and letting yourself be transported back not only to your own childhood, but also to the quaint prehistoric city of Bedrock that the Flintstones called home. If you don’t feel like doing it the authentic Fred Flintstone way — using your own two feet — catch the train ride that will take you through a volcano!

#3 Who would pass up a chance to eat at Fred’s Diner?

If you can’t handle fully immersing yourself in it’s corny nature, this isn’t the theme park for you. At Fred’s Diner, you’ll find options like a Bronto Burger, Chickasaurus Dinner, or Fishasaurus Sandwich. Of course, there are Dino Dogs for the kids and Gravelberry Pie for dessert! Sure, you could hate on the dorky names, or you could just swing by the dinner for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bedrock City has been around since 1972, so they have plenty of experience doing everything the Flintstones way!

#4 If one day simply isn’t enough, you can stay the night!

Their full service RV park offers everything you could possibly need to feel at home for a night. Enjoy electricity, water, and more, and be sure to swing by Barney’s Grocery if you find yourself in need of anything at all. If you’re staying the night, you’ll have plenty of time to check out the gift shop and game room before turning in for the day. In the game room you can shoot a game of pool, watch some TV (maybe old cartoon reruns?), or play a classic board game. At the souvenir shop, you’ve got options. Not only do they have a selection of Flintstones merchandise that is advertised at “rock bottom” prices, they also have souvenirs for remembering the Grand Canyon or Native American art. Did we mention that Bedrock City is in a great location? Spend a night here and you’ll find that you’re only a 30 minute drive from the Grand Canyon. And beautiful Flagstaff is only sixty miles away! What more reason do you need to come spend a day with Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty, and the rest of the gang?
