We’ve seen the house from Up! go fly for real, and now it is as “real” as a house can be. The house is built in Herriman, Utah and Disney is absolutely fine with it.

Flying house recreates Up! in real life


National Geographic went the way of totally awesome when they created this real life version of the popular movie Up! A team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots worked to have the 16 feet by 16 feet, 18 feet high house airborne. They made use of 300 helium-filled weather balloons to launch the house off a private airfield east of Los Angeles. The house reached an altitude of 3000 meters and remained airborne for about an hour. The launch also set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. Creation of the even was a part of National Geographic Channel’s new series How Hard Can It Be? The show will debut in the fall of this year.
