Northern Arizona 'Flintstones' theme park finds buyer

WILLIAMS, Ariz. — A northern Arizona theme park designed around the “Flintstones” cartoon will now be strictly for the birds.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported this week that the sale of Flintstones Bedrock City, the 30-acre property north of Williams, officially closed Jan. 31.

The park will become Raptor Ranch: Birds of Prey park, a showcase for falconry.

Raptor Ranch co-founder Ron Brown says the property was purchased for less than the $2 million listing price but declined to give a specific amount.

Brown says most of the Flintstones structures won’t be staying.

Bedrock City owner Linda Speckels has been trying to sell the property since 2015 and retire.

She and husband Francis opened the park in 1972. The stone age village included a restaurant, gift shop and RV park.
