There are not many attractions left that remind us of the old days anymore. Everything seems to be getting modernized by the day, and nostalgia has very few places to dwell. One such instance is the Flintstones Bedrock theme park in Arizona.
The stone-age motif theme park is also a campground that has its own attractions. The park has its own Fred’s café, Mt. St Wilma a volcano and many more attractions that you would see in the Hanna Barbera cartoon series.
However this family-owned business of 40 years hasn’t been getting very good reviews lately. This has resulted in the park to go out of business and eventually shut down.
The 30 acre ground is up for sale for about $2 million. The owner, Linda Speckels, will be selling the property off to redevelopers. Linda’s daughter, Holly Hulen, said in an interview, “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.”
However, Hulen said that the license agreement with the makers of the 60’s cartoon Hanna Barbera will be nullified when the property is sold.
