Flintstones Bedrock City

Stop the comically prehistoric bulldozers! According to local TV news reports, the new owners of Bedrock City -- who plan to turn it into a birds-of-prey "adventure park" -- will be preserving much of its Stone Age decor. Troy Morris, co-owner of the new "Raptor Ranch," said that its children's area will have Fred and Barney's houses, the Brontosaurus and Woolly Mammoth statues, Pebbles and Bam Bam, the dinosaur slide and the big snake, and all of the Flintstones' cars. He estimated that the complete changeover would take three years. Apparently Bedrock-City-Raptor-Ranch-whatever will remain open throughout the transition.

Bedrock City is open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays for the rest of summer 2019. Then it will close and re-open in the future as Raptor Ranch for birds. Hoping they decide to keep as much of Bedrock as possible for nostalgia's sake.

The latest word is that the new owners plan to keep some, but not all, of the statues, and will begin a gradual transition to Raptor Ranch starting in 2020.

Stopped by on 4/19/19 and it was closed, with a sign on the door stating "Closed - Farewell Bedrock" with a frowning face. We still took pictures out front but it definitely looks deserted now. Bummer!

The end for Bedrock City? Not so fast! The new owners now say that they plan to keep Bedrock City open through 2019, and its transformation into a raptor attraction -- and the removal of the Flintstones statues and houses -- won't begin until 2020.

The final changeover isn't scheduled, they say, until 2025.
