Attention Ghostbusters fans. If you still haven't made pre-Halloween plans, then we have the perfect vacation rental for you. Vacasa and Sony Pictures are teaming up this year to give you the getaway of your cinematic dreams. A lucky group of up to five guests will have the opportunity to spend three nights in a replica of the firehouse where the characters from the Ghostbusters movie first studied and contained specters in Portland, Oregon.
As with similar film- and TV-inspired listings , the single stay will be available to book on a first-come, first-served basis, so set your alarm clock for 10 a.m. EDT on Oct. 21 and free up your calendar from Oct. 28 to Oct. 31.
The three-story firehouse dates back to the early 1900s and has two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and multiple common areas. And, in order to replicate the firehouse from the Ghostbusters films, guests will find tons of movie memorabilia stashed throughout the house. According to a statement released by Vacasa, the vacation rental company managing the listing, the Ghostbusters firehouse has been equipped with "a scientist-approved Ghost Containment System and a Dark Room where guests can develop and analyze photos of the Scourge of Carpathia."
Expect to find the pantry stocked with Stay Puft marshmallows and Cheez-It crackers, as well as many of Egon's gadgets (the character played by Harold Ramis), including "smoking ghost traps, a P.K.E. meter, proton packs, aura video-analyzer, and an ecto-containment unit." Staying true to the original Ghostbusters station, the firehouse is also complete with Janine's desk and phone, along with a seven-foot-tall Vigo painting hanging on the wall nearby.
The property also has a ton of movie-inspired '80s trinkets, including classic old-school arcade games. This experience is enhanced by a replica of the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Sentinel limousine used by the Ghostbusters and a closet filled with uniforms and flight suits.
The listing states that the property can accommodate up to five people sharing one bathroom, one queen-size bed, and three twin-size beds. Aside from the no-pets-allowed policy, there's just one more house rule, per the listing: "Don't. Cross. The streams. It would be bad. It would be a total protonic reversal… "
The firehouse is located in the vibrant Pacific Northwest city of Portland, known for its Victorian homes, independently owned shops, great eateries, and craft beer. Renting the Ghostbusters firehouse will cost you $19.84 per night, and you can try booking on Oct. 21 at 10 a.m. EDT here .

Though it’s been almost 40 years since Ghostbusters first hit the silver screen, the story about three oddball scientists who combat myriad supernatural creatures plaguing New York City remains a popular culture icon. Rarely do you find a movie so quotable nearly four decades later.
For those who can’t get enough and want to up the ante this spooky season, Vacasa , a vacation rental management company, recently announced it has collaborated with Sony Pictures to recreate the firehouse where the trio of paranormal protectors lived and worked from in the classic film. The look-alike is located in the Nob Hill neighborhood of Portland, Oregon (not in New York City) and it is being offered as an exclusive stay for up to five guests over Halloween weekend.
The rental comes with all the real and imaginary scientific gear guests needs for catching supernatural creatures.
Beyond two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a full kitchen, the three-story firehouse will also be stocked with ghost traps, unlicensed nuclear accelerators, proton packs, an aura video analyzer, and Ghostbusters uniforms that guests can wear. Naturally, the pantry will be filled with StayPuft marshmallows and cheesy crackers. Just be sure to watch out for the cursed painting of Vigo the Carpathian (the primary adversary in Ghostbusters II ) in the living room.
The three-night stay will run from October 28 to October 31, meaning guests can get out just in time before things get too spooky.

The Ghostbusters Firehouse Could Be Yours This Halloween
By Katie Schultz
Attention, Ghostbusters fans: mark your calendars for Friday, October 21. That’s when booking will open for an exclusive three night stay at the Ghostbusters firehouse, courtesy of vacation rental platform Vacasa and Sony Pictures. The meticulously recreated space is located in Portland, Oregon, rather than the New York City building where the first film was shot.
Whoever is quickest to snag the reservation will ring in the arrival of Halloween in the festively decorated two-bedroom, three-story firehouse from October 28 through October 31, 2022. The lucky group of guests will enjoy thematic details throughout the 1900’s-built firehouse, including a full kitchen with a pantry stocked with Stay-Puft marshmallows and cheesy crackers like the ones snacked on in the movie.
The Ghostbusters Vacasa rental is available for one three night stay. Guests will notice the desk of Ghostbusters secretary Janine Melnitz immediately upon entry.
The interior of the historic brick structure is decked out in such detail that one might believe the film’s heros just stepped out to vanquish some phantoms, if it weren’t for the Ecto-1, the logo-branded Cadillac that the Ghostbusters used as their preferred mode of spector-chasing transportation, parked in the firehouse bay. Once inside, guests will find the desk of Ghostbusters secretary Janine Melnitz, complete with a ringing phone. A closet stocked with the khaki flight suits worn by the Ghostbusters themselves and a plethora of high-tech ghost-catching equipment is begging to be rifled through, while a dark room offers aspiring Ghostbusters the opportunity to develop and analyze photos of Vigo, the 16th century sorcerer who terrorized New York City in Ghostbusters II . Needless to say, there’s plenty for Ghostbusters superfans to see and do during the three night stay.
Each night in the station costs $19.84, a price that was chosen to commemorate the year the first film in the blockbuster franchise was released, and includes 24-hour on call support from the Vacasa team. Booking opens on October 21 at 10 a.m. PT on Vacasa .
A closet stocked with the khaki flight suits worn by the Ghostbusters themselves is on view during the stay, along with a plethora of high-tech ghost-catching equipment.

You can sleep inside the ‘Ghostbusters’ firehouse this Halloween
- October 12, 2022
This Halloween, something strange is coming to Portland, Oregon, as one group of lucky fans will have the chance to experience a spooktacular three-night stay in a Ghostbusters firehouse!
This morning, Vacasa, North America’s leading vacation rental management platform, announced a partnership with Sony Pictures and shared a glimpse inside the private two-bedroom, three-story firehouse, dressed as an homage to what is seen in the Ghostbusters film series.
While the full kitchen and living quarters are enticing, of course, what grabbed our attention, was the various Ghostbusters props that adorn the rental household. This includes Ghost Traps, a PKE Meter, Proton Packs, Ecto-Containment Unit, and likely the most eye-catching, an Ecto-1 vehicle that sits alongside Janine Melnitz’s desk and a seven-foot Vigo the Carpathian painting.
In a statement to CNN , Allison Lowrie, chief marketing officer at Vacasa, said:
“Every room brings a new discovery, from an interactive Ghost Containment Unit to symmetrical book stacking and walls upon walls of scientific, ghost-hunting equipment. It’s designed to be enjoyed by Ghostbusters superfans and travelers with a sense of ’80s nostalgia alike.”
Just in time for Halloween, the space will be able to rent from October 28 to 31, with a highly limited first come, first serve booking available next week, October 21, at 10 am PT, being open to one group of lucky would-be Ghostbusters . In honor of the year the first movie was released, the nightly rate is a mere $19.84 (plus local taxes + fees). Vacasa has stated that it will also donate to the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association to commemorate the experience.
If you’d like a closer look, a listing page just launched alongside a virtual tour , allowing fans to comb through every highly-detailed room for various Easter eggs.

Where ya gonna book?
If you’re not afraid of ghosts and Ectoplasm doesn’t gross you out, there is the perfect, nostalgic getaway for Halloween. And you don’t have to wait until you get to the afterlife to stay there. Starting on Oct. 28, one group of lucky Ghostbusters fans can book the iconic firehouse featured in the classic ‘80s movies.
Vacation rental management platform Vacasa partnered with Sony Pictures for a once-in-a-lifetime chance for guests to book a three-night stay at the Ghostbusters Firehouse in Portland. Yes, the same firehouse in which Egon, Ray, Dr. Peter Venkman, and Winston lived, worked, and stored the ghouls of New York City. Here’s everything you need to know.
You can rent the firehouse for just $19.84.
The rental price for the firehouse is $19.84, paying homage to the year Ghostbusters debuted. The property will be available on the Vacasa website to rent for three nights on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 a.m. on Oct. 21.
Guests will be able to stay from Oct. 28 to 31. There’s also a first-come-first-served opportunity to stay for a single night by booking the firehouse at 10 a.m. on October 21, in which Ghostbusters fans and paranormal enthusiasts can try some ghost-hunting.
Ghostbusters fans will appreciate the nostalgic amenities.
The fully furnished two-bedroom, one-bathroom, three-story firehouse, includes a full kitchen, and is the exact replica of the film's firehouse, with several Ghostbusters features and gadgets such as Egon’s smoking Ghost Traps, a P.K.E. Meter, Proton Packs, and an Aura Video-Analyzer. There’s also a Dark Room where guests can develop and analyze photos of the Scourge of Carpathia, which fans may remember from the 1989 Ghostbusters 2 movie. But don’t worry, your photos won’t catch fire from a supernatural source. There’s also Egon’s Ecto-Containment Unit, just in case guests will need to send a ghost or ghost or two back to their parallel dimension.
The iconic Ghostbusters vehicle, the Ecto-1, will also be parked in the firehouse bay, but it's only for display (no, you cannot drive the Ecto-1!) And glaring seven feet up is an evil-looking Vigo painting watching your every move from the wall. And no Ghostbusters station would be complete without the gray flight suits and Janine’s desk, who will not be staying with guests and finally has the break Venkman promised her.
There’s only one house rule.
Don't. Cross. The streams. It would be bad. It would be a total protonic reversal. And if you miss your chance to book, no worries, you can always take a virtual tour of the warehouse, safe from your home, with no threats of ghouls creeping in from another dimension.
The nostalgic getaway is also going towards a good cause. Vacasa will make a donation to the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association to commemorate the stay. So mark your calendar to book on Oct. 21.

Ghostbusters' Firehouse Vacation Rental Is the Perfect Halloween Getaway
The vacation rental company Vacasa teams up with Sony to create a Ghostbusters-themed getaway just in time for Halloween.
Just in time for Halloween, vacation rental company Vacasa has partnered with Sony to create a replica of the Ghostbusters ' firehouse headquarters.
Vacasa showed off the getaway with photos shared on Twitter, which showed a redesigned firehouse in the heart of Portland, Oregan made to look exactly like the Ghostbusters' iconic New York station. This includes some iconic settings from the movie such as the front desk of Janine Melnitz (played by Annie Potts), the ghost-containment room, and a dark room where guests can run photos through the Spectral analyzer.

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom getaway features a fully operational kitchen -- complete with Stay Puft Marshmallows and cheesy crackers -- as well as a Rec Room where guests can enjoy a classic Defender arcade machine, pinball machine and a pool table. However, the biggest draw for fans of the Ghostbusters film might be the plethora of little details Vacasa has added to this vacation home.
These details include Egon's gadgets, which are on display for guests to enjoy, such as smoking Ghost Traps, a P.K.E. Meter, Proton Packs, an Aura Video-Analyzer, and even an Ecto-Containment Unit. Guests who want to look the part can also don their own Ghostbuster uniforms for their stay in the firehouse and can pose next to the replica of the Ecto-1 sitting in the firehouse bay. More details include the dancing toaster, newspaper and magazine clippings.

Though sold out at the time of writing, booking for the Ghostbusters Firehouse opened on Oct. 21 at 10 p.m. EST for $19.84 per night, to commemorate the year that the first Ghostbusters film was released in theaters. Vacasa will also make a donation to the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association when fans book their stay.
This is not the first time Vacasa has created a film-inspired vacation home. In December 2021, Vacasa opened up bookings for a stay in the Grinch's cave in collaboration with the 2018 Illumination Grinch film. The venue, which was built inside a cave just outside of Boulder, Utah also featured several amenities and memorabilia inspired by both the book and the film.
Directed by Ivan Reitman, the original Ghostbusters debuted in 1984 and starred Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. The film inspired a franchise that consisted of two subsequent sequels as well as a 2016 reboot and another sequel titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife in 2021 directed by Jason Reitman. Most recently, Illfonic released a solo/multiplayer video game titled Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed .

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Will Now Premiere One Week Earlier
Now debuting march 22..
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire will now debut in theaters on March 22, a week earlier than its previously announced March 29 release date.
Frozen Empire was originally announced for December 2023 , then pushed back to March 2024 last July. Interestingly, that March 29 release date would've overlapped with another highly anticipated Sony movie, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. However, that trilogy-ender was delayed indefinitely during the writers' and actors' strikes over the summer.
Frozen Empire is a continuation of the original Ghostbusters story and a direct sequel to 2021's Ghostbusters: Afterlife , which starred Carrie Coon as Callie Spengler - the daughter of original Ghostbuster Egon Spengler - and her children, Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace). The sequel brings the story back to NYC and the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse.
Here's the official plot synopsis from Sony:
In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.
Coon, Wolfhard, and Grace return for Frozen Empire alongside Paul Rudd and original Ghostbusters Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Bill Murray. New to the cast are Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife writers Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman have penned the script for Frozen Empire, with Kenan taking his turn at the helm.

‘Ghostbusters’ Finally Replaces Beloved Legacy Character in ‘Frozen Empire’
in Movies & TV
Ghostbusters has replaced the beloved Egon Spengler with a new character in the upcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (2024). But is it the right thing to do?
Empire magazine continues to unleash major reveals from its exclusive Frozen Empire preview. Last week, we learned that the Ghostbusters’ former secretary, Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts), who only had a brief cameo in Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), will finally be suiting up as one of the paranormal eliminators for the first time on the big screen.
Janine joins fellow legacy characters Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson), and the Afterlife crew, Phoebe Spengler (McKenna Grace), Trevor Spengler (Finn Wolfhard), Callie Spengler (Carrie Coon), Podcast (Logan Kim), Lucky Domingo (Celeste O’Connor), and Gary Grooberson (Paul Rudd).

Seeing Janine step up to make the original Ghostbusting gang whole again will put a smile on many faces. While no one can ever replace Egon Spengler, who was killed off in Afterlife as a way to (tastefully) write the late Harold Ramis out of the film series, given the fact Janine is also a beloved legacy character, she’s more than worthy of being a stand-in of sorts.
However, the new film seems eager to replace Egon Spengler outside his Ghostbusting duties. According to Annie Potts in her interview with Empire , “it’s all hands on deck” for the Ghostbusters, which explains why there are many characters, Ghostbusters both old and new, preparing to take on the new villain Garraka , who plunges New York City into a new Ice Age.

This also explains why there’s a new scientist stationed in the iconic Firehouse’s laboratory, as revealed in an image shared by Empire , which shows British comedian James Acaster’s Lars Pinfield, who’s been brought in to develop some helpful technology for the Ghostbusters now that the Firehouse doors are open for business again, tinkering with what appears to be a new weapon while Lucky, Trevor, Podcast, and Ray look on.
“James [Acaster] is not playing a Spengler, but he really falls in line with the Egon Spengler ‘type,'” Jason Reitman, co-writer and co-producer of Frozen Empire (and co-writer director of Afterlife ), tells Empire.

But do we need an “Egon Spengler type”? Didn’t we close the door on the beloved character in Afterlife , which, in its entirety, is a tribute to both the character and the late actor?
Acaster’s character might not be a Ghostbuster (although it’s possible he’ll suit up at some point in the film), but giving him the role of the Firehouse’s scientist feels unnecessary. And having him continue Spengler’s legacy — even if it’s just in terms of style (the specs and swirly blonde hair have deliberate Real Ghostbusters -Egon vibes) — feels redundant when the new films are already focused on the deceased Ghostbusters’ daughter and grandchildren.
When is Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire out in theaters?
Frozen Empire will now be released on March 22, 2024. The first issue in a tie-in comic book series titled Ghostbusters: Back in Town , which bridges the gap between Afterlife and the upcoming film, will be released on March 27, 2024.
Check out the original trailer for Frozen Empire below, per Sony Pictures :
Frozen Empire stars Carrie Coon (Callie Spengler), Paul Rudd (Gary Grooberson), McKenna Grace (Phoebe Spengler), Finn Wolfhard (Trevor Spengler), Celeste O’Connor (Lucky Domingo), Logan Kim (Podcast), Dan Aykroyd (Ray Stantz), Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz), William Atherton (Walter Peck), Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore), Bill Murray (Peter Venkman), and James Acaster (Lars Pinfield).
The film also stars Patton Oswalt (Dr. Hubert Wartzki), Kumail Nanjiani (Nadeem Razmaadi), and Emily Alyn Lind in an undisclosed role.

Ghostbusters Director Says Late 80s Animated Series Inspired Frozen Empire
Posted: January 17, 2024 | Last updated: January 18, 2024
Instead of drawing inspiration from the 1980s films, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire uses the animated series The Real Ghostbusters instead.
The Real Ghostbusters often featured creatures such as a werechicken, a boogeyman, and an alternate reality with Peoplebusters. Speaking to Empire , director Gil Kenan described these villains as "wild and weird as f—k." However, it was the originality that attracted the filmmaker. "We wanted to bring that show's looseness and fearlessness to this movie," Kenan explained. "I think it's going to surprise people just how big this film is."

Jason Reitman, who directed, co-wrote, and produced Ghostbusters: Afterlife , also mentioned that Frozen Empire drew further inspiration from other films of the 80s. "John Hughes was a big touchstone," Reitman said. "That thing of a family in a station wagon, living in a crumbling home, the teenagers kicking back against their parents. [Finn Wolfhard's] Trevor's 18 now, so he's like, 'I'm an adult!'"
Frozen Empire Explores Reality of Living At The Iconic Firehouse
The film was also influenced by Wes Anderson. "We wanted that Royal Tenenbaums thing of a family living on top of each other... but in the Ghostbusters' Firehouse," Reitman said. "We see the Firehouse way more than in any previous Ghostbusters film. What's it like to sleep there and do laundry there? What's the attic like?" he added.
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire follows the Spengler family, who move back to New York City after defeating Gozer at the end of the 2021 movie. Per the official synopsis, the story begins "when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes a mysterious evil force called the Death Chill on the city. Ghostbusters, new and old, must join forces to protect their home and save the world."
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Will Release Sooner Than Expected
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire will once again feature Carrie Coon as Callie Spengler, McKenna Grace as Phoebe Spengler, Finn Wolfhard as Trevor Spengler, Paul Rudd as Gary Grooberson, and Logan Kim as Podcast. The original team of Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Annie Potts will also play a much more significant role in the film.
Newcomers to the franchise include British comedian James Acaster as Lars Pinfield , Patton Oswalt as Dr. Hubert Wartzki, and Kumail Nanjiani as Nadeem Razmaadi. Hudson previously discussed Winston's part in reviving the team . "Winston's a wealthy guy now, and he's funding research into new technology and the science behind ghostbusting," he said. "When the world is threatened… He suits up with the rest of them."
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire hits theaters on March 22.
