CAN YOU AFFORD TO OWN A THEME PARK?

(AP) – Bedrock City, a Stone Age theme park inspired by the animated TV show "Flintstones," is on the market for just $2 million and has everything a modern
cave dweller could ask for.

In addition to several fake rock-style huts, future owners will inherit a camp
ground, volcano train, a themed diner, brontosaurus slide and convenience
store with statues of cartoon characters nestled around the property.

Located in Williams, Arizona, Bedrock City is just a 30-minute drive from one
of America’s most famous rocky formations—the Grand Canyon.
