"Ever since the filming of the movie here in 2011, thousands of fans have come - and continue to come - to this area to see the filming locations from the first movie," said Trapp, owner of the fan tours. "It's been our pleasure to show them these sites. Collaborating with the staff DuPont State Recreational Forest, the Transylvania Tourism Development Authority and other local partners has provided us with a great way to share the filming sites - and all that Transylvania County has to offer - to tourists around the globe. It's had a tremendous positive impact on the tourism industry economy here in Transylvania, as well as in Buncombe and Burke counties."

Good Morning America airs on ABC between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.
