Ghostbusters gets its first-ever theme park ride in Dubai
Finally, you don’t have to call anyone else when there’s something strange in the neighborhood: A new interactive ride at Motiongate Dubai is initiating everyone who steps on board as Ghostbusters.
Inspired by the 1984 classic comedy and its recent reboot, Ghostbusters: Battle for New York equips riders with their own proton packs with the goal of shooting as many ghosts as possible. The Ecto-Pod cars carry guests along the rooftops of New York City, where projections of some of the franchise’s iconic ghosts, such as Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, will appear and taunt riders. The ride opens this October.
In addition to the new ride, Motiongate Dubai will also be celebrating Ghostbusters with a new musical show and a themed diner. Ghostbusters Boy Band will feature actors portraying the original four ecto-exterminators singing and dancing and also posing for pictures with fans. The park will also open Slimer’s Diner, specializing in Ghostbusters-themed food and a specialty green slushie.
