Are you brave enough to sleep in the “Ghostbusters” fire station this Halloween?


(CNN) — Something strange is happening in this neighborhood of Oregon.

Sony and vacation rental company Vacasa have teamed up to give a brave group of friends an exclusive three-night stay at the Ghostbusters Firehouse.

The building, recreated from the 1984 film “Ghostbusters,” is in Portland, not New York, where the film is set. But it’s still the perfect place to start a ghost hunting business.

The three-story fire station includes all the essentials: a PKE counter, ghost traps, proton packs, Aura video analyzer and an ecto containment unit to store any evil spirits you catch. Ecto-1, the Ghostbusters’ vehicle, is even parked in the fire station.

Guests can wear the famous Ghostbusters battle costumes and snack on Stay Puft marshmallows, among other spooky activities. Just try not to make eye contact with the cursed painting of “Vigo the Carpathians”, the main antagonist of 1989’s “Ghostbusters II”.

One lucky group of guests will have the opportunity to experience a three-night stay, October 28-31, 2022, in an immersive recreation of where the Ghostbusters first studied and contained the spooky specters.

“We’re dedicated to the details, and this Ghostbusters Firehouse in Portland is no exception,” Allison Lowrie, chief marketing officer at Vacasa, told CNN.

“Each room brings a new discovery, from an interactive ghost containment unit to a symmetrical stack of books and walls upon walls of scientific ghost-hunting equipment. It’s designed to be enjoyed by Ghostbusters superfans and fans alike. travelers with a sense of 80s nostalgia.”

The immersive experience will run from October 28-31, the perfect time of year to stir the spirits.

Guests brave enough to book the three-night stay can do so Oct. 21 at 10 a.m. PT for a rate of $19.84 per night. This rate was chosen in honor of the year Ghostbusters launched, Vacasa said in a press release. The experience is first come, first served, so mark your calendars.

And fear not, even if you can’t stay at the fire station, you can still check out a Matterport 360 virtual tour of the building on the rentals listing.
