Hey all you die-hard The Hunger Games fans out there, you can actually own where the film was shot! Well, that is if you have a measly $1.4 million lying around. The 72-acre location is located at the Henry River Mil Village in North Carolina. Just imagine being able to run around where Katniss and Peeta fought to stay alive. I think I just got goosebumps!
The property’s owner, Wade Sheperd, had said that he is sick and tired of fans coming and running around on his property, so he has decided to make a profit off if his land. Here’s what he had to say about the dilemma:
"I'm getting too many visitors, day and night, they're driving through, taking pictures, getting out and walking. I'm just bombarded with people."
Quite understandable, I guess - but honestly, if you have the biggest movie in the world filmed on your property, you know that the fans is just part of the price it comes with.
If you are just interested in visiting, not trespassing, it's $79 for a day or $389 for a weekend. During your stay you get the total The Hunger Games treatment. Visitors will also get the chance to learn many survival skills such as how to shoot a sling shot, lessons in archery, camouflage and many other cool tribute skills. All of this is done where the filming took place.
So how many of you will be begging your parents to come up with $1.4 million? Slim chance, but so worth the shot, right?
