I remember visiting the Bedrock City theme park in Bridal Falls, British Columbia, almost 30 years ago. (Wow, that’s a long time!) Back then I watched the Flintstones every Saturday morning, and I was always excited to visit their home. Bedrock City rebranded as Dinotown in 1995 but was forced to close its doors in 2010 due to owner Rob Ell’s health concerns. Thankfully he’s recovered, and I’m excited to announce that after several years on hiatus, Dinotown has a new home in Cultus Lake!
Last weekend we grabbed the kids and joined 20 other bloggers and their families for some fun at the newly relaunched Dinotown Funland.
We were hoping for sun and got rain instead, but in the end it really didn’t matter. The kids had a fantastic time at Dinotown anyway!
Dinotown attractions include:
- Live dinosaur shows featuring Dinoland characters Dusty Bones, Dina, Dee Dee, and Dexter
- Inflatable water slide (We didn’t bring our bathing suits, but we will next time!)
- Huge inflatable Ninjasaur dinosaur slide
- Giant maze
- Paddle boats
- Dinosaur mini golf
- Bounce castles
- Kids zipline
- Big wheels track
- Numerous fully furnished playhouses including a doll house, pet hospital, doctor’s office, police station, fire station, grocery store, and more
The girls were both mesmerized by the dino show. They loved dancing along with the friendly dino characters and shaking their pom poms in the interactive Dinotown parade.
They loved bouncing around in the extra large bounce castle too!
Close to a dozen furnished playhouses dot the grounds. The girls loved exploring them all and playing in the doll house and pet hospital while it rained outside.
I particularly enjoyed seeing a few pieces of memorabilia from the old Bedrock City. I remember pretending to drive those same Flintstones cars back when I was a kid too!
Both my kids are pretty young, so I really appreciated that there were plenty of things for both of them to do. Even Kay who’s too small for traditional rides had a great time. (She couldn’t get enough of those playhouses!) The girls were too small for the big wheels and paddle boats, but Tee did the ziplines just fine with a boost up. We grabbed ice cream cones from Frosty’s Ice Cream Parlour for the perfect ending to our visit.
Thanks to Mayor Rob Ell and all the staff for a fun day at Dinotown! See you soon!
