Buy this Flintstones-themed campground and theme park for $2 million

Theme park or desolate wasteland? You decide. Considering the tax burden I think they’d have to pay me an awful lot to take that place off their hands.

Where’s Barney? Can I send Barney off to “re-education school”? And, uh, is Betty free for coffee later? Oh, and somebody go find Dino–he’s been in the godamned trash again.

Sweet! I know where I’m spending my retirement!

There’s a dirty weekend hotel in the Lake District with a Flintstones themed room. I doubt Hannah-Barbera know though (we stayed in the Cleopatra suite).


#6

Dang, of all the times to be caught two million short.

I stayed in the South Dakota one as a small tyke and recall loving it.

Just once, I wanna scream, “Yabba-Dabba-Doo!” and slide down the dinosaur’s tail.

Also, what would Wilma and Betty look like with more realistic features?

[quote=“frauenfelder, post:1, topic:59007”]“The license agreement with Hanna-Barbera, the studio behind the campy 1960s cartoon, The Flintstones, is not a part of the sale and would need to be renegotiated.”[/quote]So, otherwise, it becomes a campground themed on Dref Glintstone? And his signature cry of Yooba-Dooba-Da? Maybe go for the sci-fi angle about how they are actually descended from a group of astronauts stranded with nothing but sophisticated gene manipulation technology. Yah, that’ll do it.

Ah, that explains the “why do I think I’ve been to this place” feeling I just had.


#10

Hey, I’ve been there before. We had to go there when we went to Arizona because my wife had gone there as a kid.

I have stayed at this place a few times. Cheap place to camp on the way to a few fun places to go backcountry. It is not terrible but there are no trees to speak of and it is a bit uninspiring. The Flintstones theme does not even carry your interest as far as you might imagine it would


#14

Yes, looking at the photos I can say I would definitely augment my perceptions in the parking lot, then go in.

This must depict Fred after he was hit on the head with a stone bowling ball, again.

Thank you for keeping Rosie O’donnell out of it.

Yep, my family stayed there in 1978 or so, and I remember it being even more run-down and desolate than these current pictures portray. But my sister and I attended a year-round school, so my mother had us going on vacations during the off-season to avoid crowds. We were the only family staying here.

It was like The Shining only weirder and somewhat less violent.

Wasn’t this (or a facsimile thereof) in one of the New Vegas expansions?
