A Farewell…Maybe

It has been kind of a difficult summer for us born-and-raised Black Hills kids, hasn’t it? First we had to watch our beloved Rushmore Waterslide demolished and flattened into housing lots.

Then word that, after 50 years in business, The Flintstones Bedrock City has been sold and most likely will close for good after Labor Day.

My daughter and I made one last visit to the park this past weekend as did a lot of other people. So many, in fact, that we had to stand in line for about 15 minutes to enter the park, when usually there is no wait.

I completely understand the owners’ need to move on with the new chapters of their lives, but I couldn’t help but get a bit nostalgic thinking of all the kids from all over the world who enjoyed the park in those 50 years.

Thank you for the memories!
