Salt Lake City Resident Recreates King Kong Scene for Halloween
Ammon Smith, a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah has recreated the famous King Kong scene in his front yard. His front lawn is decked out with a gigantic replica of the Empire State Building with the gorilla huddled at the top.
The 40-foot display which was taken from the classic films has everyone in their neighborhood awed. Interviewed by Inside Edition, Smith said: “We love Halloween. We also really enjoy doing crafty things. Every year, Halloween gives us an excuse to build something gigantic and have fun with it.”
Working with his wife, Tera, on every Halloween project, the couple’s house has been a favorite attraction for many people around the neighborhood. In 2014, their motif was a gigantic pirate ship with a skeleton train.
This year’s Halloween project took the couple around 100 hours to complete. The Empire State replica is made of wood and Styrofoam and the giant King Kong is made of fabric, pool noodles, and wood, the couple spent around $140 on the set.
And this does not include their expenses on candies and treats. When asked how much he put in for the candy, Smith said: “probably a good $500.”
Smith also said that other people contribute to the candy supply and, “bring bags of candy by and leave it on our doorstep. Otherwise, it´d probably be a lot more.”
The creative homeowner said that the important thing about their project is the happiness it brings to their community. He emphasized that they create themes which are not scary for young kids.
He said: “We stay away from the blood and guts so everybody feels comfortable coming by and asking us for a piece of candy.”
Smith added: “I guarantee right now there are probably four cars stopped in front of my house. It´s pretty constant. It´s fun for everybody.”
