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).
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?

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.
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.
“If you want the tree, you need to make a reservation by Christmas.”
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
Yes, looking at the photos I can say I would definitely augment my perceptions in the parking lot, then go in.
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?
