Full-Size Replica of Famous Utah Arch

The real Delicate Arch in Arches National Park is 46 feet high and 32 feet wide. While this replica is interesting to see, it is not full-size.

According to Boondocks Fun Center, its arch is 54 feet high: eight feet higher than the real one. Someone needs to visit both with a tape measure.

Delicate Arch replica

Jack Cox, a feature writer for the Denver Post, alerts us to the recent erection of a replica of Utah's famous Delicate Arch. "The 54-foot arch serves as signage for a new Boondocks fun center (miniature golf, go-carts, video arcade, laser tag, etc.) due to open in mid-March."

The ersatz arch is a fitting addition to a town filled with avid straddlers of the Artificial and the Natural ... metropolitan culture and comforts, but oh-so-close to the Great Outdoors. In the Utah wilds, park rangers and environmentalists panic if a tourist makes a loud noise near the real "Delicate Arch." But Boondock's sturdy bit of American engineering can likely withstand a head-on SUV collision.

There is another Delicate Arch at the Boondock's Fun Center in Boise, Idaho.
