Bedrock City Flintstone Haven – Valle, Arizona

Flintstones.jpegBedrock City Dinosaurs – Valle, Arizona

Want to get up close and personal to a dinosaur?  At Bedrock City, halfway between the Grand Canyon and Williams, you have the opportunity to do just that.  Here you will see Fred and Barney, Wilma and Betty along with Pebbles and Bamm Bamm from the Flintstones cartoons as well as the giant dinosaur that you can slide down the tail, like a slide, just like Fred on the intro to the cartoon.  This unique stop is located between the Grand Canyon and Williams on Arizona Hwy 54 at the junction of US 180 in Valle.  Created to look like Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm from the Flintstones cartoons they will bring a smile to your face, regardless of whether you are still a kid or just remembering how the Flintstones made you laugh.  The statues are stationary, they are huge and they are fun.

Do you want to see a volcano without worrying about it going off?  Well, you can at this spot with the made volcano, there is a man-made hatching pterodactyl, man-made Fred and Barney cars and Goatasauruses (these are real goats).

The whole area is created in the Flintstone tradition, right down to Fred and Barney’s houses and the policeman’s house.  Both Fred and Barney have three-room houses for you to see complete with the TV and phone in Barney’s house and the bird-beak-needle phonographs at Fred’s house.

There is a camp ground here along with Fred’s Diner so you can stop for the night, enjoy the Flintstones and get something to eat, not a bad deal for just $4.50!

Just a little something rather different on your trip from the Grand Canyon and all it’s beauty, kind of fun to have something as silly as this place to relax and enjoy.

  1. I just did a fly by of the Bedrock City Flintstone Valle, Arizona attraction two days ago! Me and my brother were on a two day vacation at the Grand Canyon and drove by it! Didn’t see many cars or campers in the parking area. This is the slow time of the year though.

    We are both totally blind, however, we still have really enjoyed listening to the Flintstones for years and now, we have found a place where we will be able to actually come and actually visit them and their little village. It really sounds great. Hope to see you there soon, Kristy and Vern

    I spotted this place on our way to the Grand Canyon on Friday and made my husband promise to take our family on the way back to town on Sunday.
    We were so excited! I felt like I’d made my own little discovery since I’d never heard of it. The gift shop we walked into was a little dodgy and definitely smelled of smoke. (No fun for a family of asthmatics.) But the park itself was a fun travel back in time. The attractions are definitely worn down and some pieces are broken, but it’s great for those of us who appreciate true Americana without the glitz and polish.

    Word of advice though: Do not wear flip flops. There are stickers and burrs everywhere that go straight through flip flops. I eventually had to send my husband back to the car to get my sneakers and I ended up with bloody feet and a ruined pair of shoes. Start with sneakers and you’ll be fine.

  6. We went by in the winter on our way to the Grand Canyon. We stopped and had a great breakfast in the diner in front of a roaring fire. It was all decorated for Christmas and was pretty because of it. We didn’t pay to go in the back as it seemed a little to much for what we figured it was. I think if the entrance fee to get into see the back were a little more reasonable they might see a lot more business. Definitely a cute “Big Ball of Yarn” moment that is worth at least stopping for a 5 cent cup of coffee to see!
