If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, where are you going to stay? Preferably in a place that is equipped with all the gear you need to keep ghosts, specters, and ghosts at bay. Sony and vacation rental company Vacasa have joined forces to create a Ghostbusters getaway in Portland, modeled after the iconic firehouse headquarters of the paranormal exterminators from the 1984 film.
Fortunately, there is no serious metal fatigue in all load-bearing members, the wiring is not poor, it is not completely inadequate for power needs, and the neighborhood does not look like a demilitarized zone.
The three-story replica will be open to a lucky group of friends for three nights and includes all the amenities you’d expect from a crib inspired by the building shared by Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Will Zeddemore and Peter. Venkman. Complimentary proton packs, PKE meters, and ghostbuster flight suits are included, an Ecto-1 is parked in the bay area, and there’s even an ecto containment unit to deposit some ghosts. Remember: if the light is green, the trap is clean.
“We are dedicated to the details, and this Ghostbusters firehouse in Portland is no exception,” Vacasa’s director of marketing, Allison Lowrie, told CNN. “Each room brings a new discovery, from an interactive ghost containment unit to symmetrical stacked books and walls upon walls of scientific ghost-hunting equipment. It’s designed to be enjoyed by Ghostbusters superfans and travelers with a sense of wonder.” ’80s nostalgia alike.”
If you can’t make it to Portland, the good news is you can check out a virtual Matterport 360 tour of the building right now.
