It looks like the Flintstones are going to have to start looking for new digs. After 50 years, Flintstones Bedrock City — a theme park and campground in South Dakota based on the beloved cartoon — is closing its doors after Labor Day weekend. (Video via Warner Bros., Flintstones Bedrock City)
The owner, Joe Speckels, is retiring and told the press, "It's been really great. I've enjoyed it, but I'm tired."
The site sits on 62 acres. That includes the theme park made to look like Bedrock, the campgrounds and a drive-in diner.
