The suburban Salt Lake County city of Herriman says it's seeing a surge of visitors after a replica of the house in the Disney/Pixar movie "Up" opened to widespread publicity.
An estimated 27,000 visitors have come to Herriman since the vibrant
green-and-pink house opened this summer. One of the home's builders, Blair Bangerter, says about 1,000 people visit the home
Herriman's population is about 20,000.
The 2,800-square-foot, 4-bedroom home is a precision re-creation of the house in the 2009 movie. It features a stenciled mailbox in front of the house that reads "Carl & Ellie" as a nod to the main characters.
Bangerter says he and his brothers -- who collectively own Bangerter Homes -- wanted to replicate the house because it's iconic and plays an important role in the movie. They got permission from Disney to use the movie to promote their creation.
