Something strange is coming to Universal's "Halloween Horror Nights" neighborhood.
For the first time ever, "Ghostbusters" will be featured at the attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort. The immersive mazes will incorporate memorable scenes, characters and supernatural spirits from the iconic 1984 movie.
Starting in September, visitors to the two theme parks can follow in the footsteps of the Ghostbusters — Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston — as they venture through the movie's famous sets, including the firehouse, New York Public Library and the Temple of Gozer.
Visitors will come face-to-face with an array of paranormal creatures, from the voracious Slimer to the all-powerful Gozer the Gozerian and in its ultimate destructor form — the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
