Universal Studios is preparing to cross the streams to bring Ghostbusters to both it’s Orlando and Hollywood locations for Halloween Horror Nights! Prepare for mass hysteria! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Okay, maybe not that extreme, but you get the idea. Fan speculation became reality when Universal Studios announced Wednesday that Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston would be showing the spooks and specters how they do things downtown.

The announcement seemed inevitable to hopeful fans since Ghostbusters is not only celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year, but also fits perfectly into the 80s theme of HHN 29. (We also can’t overlook the fact that the film is getting a sequel release in 2020 that includes some of the original cast members).

According to the press release, visitors can expect:

…artfully recreated scenes from the film, including the firehouse, New York Public Library and the Temple of Gozer, as an army of ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms attack from every corner.

If that description isn’t enough to power your Proton Pack, just imagine eager haunted house goers coming face-to-face with “the voracious Slimer, the all-poweful Gozer the Gozerian, Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man and more.”

The Ghostbusters maze joins previously announced houses that will delight and give fright to horror fans, including Universal Monsters and a Stranger Things house that covers seasons 2 and 3 of the Netflix show. Additionally, three original houses have already been announced, including Nightingales: Blood Pit, Depths of Fearand Yeti: Terror of the Yukon. We are still awaiting details on four more haunted houses as well as the five Scare Zones, in addition to live entertainment and attractions.

Having gone to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Orlando for the last two years, I can attest that the houses make you feel as though you walked straight into your favorite horror flick (or a new original story that you can’t predict). I’m ready to make the call and get my tickets for this year’s HHN, which runs select nights from September 6th – November 2nd. I just hope that if one of my friends gets slimed this year they’ll save some for me!
