GOONIES GROUPIESThis is why we can't have nice things, people. The iconic home seen in "The Goonies," which is located in Astoria, Oregon, has been made off-limits to visitors.

The owners have put up a blue tarp around the house to ward off the estimated 1,500 daily visitors, according to the local news station KGW. They were apparently fed up with some of the tourists' bad behavior, like leaving behind trash.

"They park on the 'no-parking' zones, they park on the sidewalks, they relieve their dogs on their lawns," said Astoria City Councilman Russ Warr.

The owner bought the house in 2001, when there were far fewer visitors. For a little while, they even greeted the fans and gave tours. But with the movie's 30th anniversary this year, the number of pilgrims has increased significantly. Now, all they'll see is the blue tarp.

"It's a bummer as someone who just wanted to come see a piece of childhood and something you think you're a part of," said one disappointed tourist.

Guess it is time to say die, Goonies.
