Ghostbusters premiered to us regular folks (non celebs) on June 8, 1984. In recent years unofficially and officially the date has become Ghostbusters Day. Naturally its even more official during a milestone year for the Ghostbusters franchise.

What can we all be part of for Ghostbusters Day this year? Sony Pictures Entertainment has a handy press release.
Included in the cost of admission, the Ghostbusters Experience is a multi-layered and sensory environment immersing you into a fantastical and spirited world, inspired by the 2016 film.
From the eerie underground tracks of the NYC subway to the basement of a haunted mansion to Ghostbusters Headquarters to the streets of Times Square, brace yourself for several spooks and even catch a ride on Ecto-2.
Armed with insider tips and tricks, you’ll eventually be given the chance to capture your own ghost with the famed spirit hunters!
We all had the same goal – to create the most authentic “Ghostbusters” experience possible. We’re using the same sounds, 3D models, and textures from the film to recreate a world where you’ll struggle to capture ghosts and cause an unbelievable amount of damage.”
James Jensen, Chief Visionary Officer at THE VOID
The Ghostbusters world is the perfect fit with THE VOID because we literally strap our RAPTURE vest and gun on you and they turn into your proton pack and proton gun. You become a Ghostbuster, investigating an apartment filled with ghosts in a three player adventure, where hopefully you won’t destroy New York City.”
Our apologies we didn’t post this sooner. We were watching superheroes cause a lot of damage over international paper work. We know how that can go.
