  • We stopped here for a laugh and that we did have. Its rather run down but the lovely warm fire inside on a cold day and the buildings and space outside to let the kids run around on a long car journey...  more »
  • This place was really weird. We stopped in thinking that it would be a cool, nostalgic spot. However, it was actually really rundown and dark. Due to the conditions in the giftshop and restrooms, we e...  more »
  • Fun place to see and the coffee really is 5 cents! (8 oz.) At the restaurant the soups are home made and the service was splendid. Very friendly place to go. Home cooking!  more »

  • We read about this place when we were planning our trip to the Grand Canyon. We stopped by after we left the Grand Canyon and arrived around 4 pm. We looked around the store and they had a lot of cheap souvenir type items. There was a little cafe and we thought we might try to eat there before we left. We paid the $5 each to go into bedrock city and were told to come back through the same door we went into. We looked around and at first thought it was going to be pretty cool. Then we looked closer and realized that it looked like it had not been maintained at all. Everything was fallen apart, windows were broken, there was tagging everywhere and hardly anything worked. There were a lot of things that were vandalized and they didn’t repair anything. They had a “train ride” which was a golf cart and a trailer that was made to look like a flintstone car. We went over to the “train” and nobody was there. We looked closer and saw that it was chained up so we decided to just leave. We went to the door and it was locked. We heard people inside so we knocked and pounded on the door but it never opened. It was 5:00. The sign said open for dinner, so we didn’t think they were closed yet. We walked to some windows and found all of the lights off. We pounded on the door some more, but heard nothing. We were locked inside the theme park. We tried finding a way out, but there were no exits we could get through. Luckily there was no fence or wall and we were able to escape. To do so, we had to walk about 1/4 mile through an overgrown field and climb through a hole in a barbed wire fence, where there were some dead fish just hanging there, to get back to our car. All of this with our 4 year old child. When we did finally get back to our car, the employee that let us into the park was standing by her truck. We later found out her name was Charlie. We tried to get her attention by saying, “excuse me?” And she responded, “I’m busy” and ignored us. We went next door to their “campground” which was a bunch of permanent, broken down looking, motor homes that it looked like people were living in. We spoke to someone there, who was very friendly and apologized, and said he would speak to the owner about it. Overall, we were VERY disappointed and wish we would have just kept on driving.
  • I believe the idea of this place is what draws people in, because the actual experience was not at all what we envisioned. This place is not winter-friendly, with freezing cold winds and all attractions closed inside the park. On arrival, we entered a gift shop and waited for the cashier to become available to let us in. She was super nice and rattled off a bunch of things that were closed. It was $5 per person, but we saved 10% because I'm a Veteran. However, with everything closed they should only charge $2 for this less than hour visit. My 11-year old daughter's first words to me after going through the entrance door was "Daddy, this place is kind of sad". The hills had eyes in this creepy place, we stuck together as a group. There didn't appear to be any walls or fences (just a huge plain), so we kept worrying what we'd find with each little building we walked into (wolf, snake, who knows). Nothing happened, we were relieved. The train that goes through the volcano was closed, as was the animal exhibit and whatever show takes place on the stage. The women's bathroom was "Closed for the winter" according to the sign and the men's gave my wife and daughters nightmares (awful smell and not well maintained). Areas of the park looked half way through demolition, like some collapsed building by the single table picnic area. The buildings we're in need of fresh paint and some TLC, but we're neat if you let your imagination wonder. The dinosaur slide has ridges that hurt your left leg going down according to the kids, but was cool to look at and offered a nice view point of the whole little city. If we ever return, it will be during summer.
  • The cafe is great! The food was amazing and the .5 cent coffee delicious. The Bedrock Area reminded me of the TV show. It was in a large area and children can run around and play. Lots of picture opportunities. Nice stop before you head to the Canyon. Establishment was clean and staff was super friendly. Very homey feel.
  • We stayed at the camp ground. Very simple accomodations. The first site we were given didn't have proper running electricity. They had us move to another site. Dirt site pads made the camper very dusty when we left. Staff were friendly. The Bedrock exhibit is fun to see if you are a Flintstones fan. It is also a bit sad because maintenance upkeep is pretty bad. Fun for some photo opportunities and nostalgia.
  • We camped here out of necessity. The bathrooms were in major need of repair and cleaning. The laundry facilities weren't working properly and when we left we found the nastiest large thorns had poked holes through the bottom of our tent (we set up at dusk so we didn't see them everywhere), we also had hundreds of these thorns embedded in our shoes. It took several hours to pick them out of our shoes. The people we talked to at the office were very nice and helpful though. They allowed us to use a seperate washer & dryer they set up in the back, and the price was reasonable. With some much needed maintenance and perhaps camping pads that could have the thorns swept off this campground could be very nice, but we won't be staying again like it was when we stayed.
