The six-month transformation of the property on Pandora Cresent in Pacific Pines on the Gold Coast, designed by a family of Halloween enthusiasts known to the locals under their pseudonyms Mr and Mrs Strappleberry, was inspired by the book and Stephen King's IT film.

After a year of planning, the & # 39; Neibolt Well House & # 39 ;, the abandoned house where IT lived, finally opened its doors to the public for Halloween on Thursday.

The redesigned building has a complete white brick front, densely paneled windows, broken shutters and creepy vines.

It also contains a decayed metal fence and a scary witch who evokes a smoky brew in her cauldron.

Other quirky features include a giant spider, an incredible maze that wraps around the entire site, a lead-through mine, and a life-size figure of Georgie, who is captured by nightmarish clown Pennywise in Stephen King's story.

Mr. Strappleberry previously told Daily Mail Australia it is the second year that his family created the event after initially celebrating the spooky season with a limited budget.

& # 39; We turned off a smoke machine and a few cheap cobwebs a few years ago and noticed how many families and children were trick-or-treat & he said.

& # 39; It was great to see excited kids having fun, so we decided we could do more. & # 39;

Strappleberry then explained the idea that snow was falling during last year's attempt and they came up with & # 39; Panic on Pandora & # 39; up.

& # 39; We didn't know if anyone would show up, but ended up with more than 600 happy families and pursuers & he said.

He knew that this year's Halloween home transformation would be even greater.

& # 39; We didn't know what to expect that first year, but we said that if we did it again, we would plan, plan, plan & he said.

& # 39; Halloween is a 24/7 thing, ideas never stop. Planning may take six months to limit what we wanted to create this year & # 39 ;, he said.

The visionary of Hallows Eve also explained knowing how much the local children love it is the best part.

& # 39; We are convinced that you must be the change that you want to see in the world, & # 39; the father explained.

& # 39; The streets are filled with children and families enjoying the time together … children really excited, neighbors talking / meeting each other … it's just an incredible atmosphere where the community comes together. & # 39;

While Mr. Strappleberry would not give away the total cost of the project, he joked: & # 39; It was a jet ski for me or a Halloween event for everyone & # 39 ;, and said the family used it to do a & # 39; creative itch & # 39; to scratch.
