With all the buzz over the new “Ghostbusters” film released this weekend, it seemed like the appropriate time to release some information on the world’s first ride based on the original movie. This will be opening soon at MOTIONAGATE Dubai.
That’s right kids, Ghostbusters – Battle for New York is a trackless dark ride that transports guests to the rooftops of New York City, where the paranormal activity begins aboard your very own Ecto-Pod vehicle. Armed with a ghost-blasting proton pack, guests are inducted as honorary Ghostbusters with one goal – to exterminate Slimer, Gozer the Destructor, and The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
“Ghostbusters is a classic film that has transpired generations over the past 30 years,” said Dubai Parks and Resorts Chief Parks Operating Officer Standford Pinto. “MOTIONGATE Dubai is finally giving the world the chance for guests to immerse themselves into the film through a world-class Ghostbusters ride, the Ghostbusters live street show and a themed diner. Guaranteed to be crowd pleasers, we can’t wait to introduce our action-packed Ghostbusters theme park experiences to the world.”
Here is where I get lost in all of this. There will be a Ghostbusters Boy Band show just outside the firehouse. Yeah, I am scratching my head on that one too. In addition, guests will be able to visit Slimer’s Diner, where they can peruse themed food including green slime slush. As a fan of the original film, I can’t wait to see how all this turns out.
