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.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports 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 each week.

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.
