You’ll have a gay old time exploring this run down roadside attraction next to the Grand Canyon in Williams, AZ.
Established in 1972 — six years after the animated show ended its 166-episode run — this roadside attraction features replicas of Fred and Barney’s favorite haunts, including their homes, a grocery store, movie theater, gas station, doctor’s office, and a dinosaur with a built-in slide. Make sure you go to the restroom before entering the park because there’s only one that actually works and it’s located in the parking lot. Oh, and don’t forget to get the security code that unlocks the only bathroom on the premises from the lady behind the cashier. Hope there’s not a line.
Yeah you could be lame and just take a few freebie pictures with the characters outside in the parking lot or you could be totally freaking awesome, give the cashier your $5 bucks and have a gay old time in Bedrock City.
There apparently used to be a tram that would take guests through the volcano and a loop around the park but like most things around here, it no longer works.
The famous foot-powered cars also make an appearance, though attempting to drive one of them is an exercise in futility.
Bedrock City is licensed for merchandising by Hanna-Barbera, and although that confers benefits — such as some stylish new fiberglass statues of the principal Flintstones characters — it has drawbacks as well. Pressure platforms in front of Fred and Barney once triggered nutty audio patter, but the suits at Hanna-Barbera, blind to the multimedia needs of tourists, told Bedrock to shut off the tapes.
I don’t remember ever seeing a giant snake on the Flintstones but there’s one here and you can crawl through it by entering its gaping mouth and exiting through its small anus [just watch out for the peebles all over the disgusting floor and the cobwebs in the middle].
Oh look, its a giant dinoslide.
WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT ME?
I took the Dino stairs up to the top, because I just couldn’t stop myself from sliding down a dinosaurs tail.
Fred and Wilma’s house is kind of cute. They’ve sext it up with some exotic animal print window treatments.
Their old school media center is pretty bitch’n too.
Betty and Barney must like watching Animal Planet.
They sure watched a lot of TV back in the prehistoric days.
They have one of the nicer kitchen’s in the hood.
…you’re on Catty Camera.
Hot for teacher.
I guess their #2 pencils were a little bigger back then. Bubble tests must of sucked.
Just waiting to take your temperature…anally!
Get your hair did.
See, oil really does come from the dinosaurs.
So ugly but oh so cute.
