Ghostbusters Battle for New York

Now that the new Ghostbusters movie is finally in theaters and people can stop bantering whether it is better than the original or not, we can focus on something that IS based on the classic Ghostbusters film, the awesome new Ghostbusters – Battle for New York, which is coming to Motiongate Dubai.

The new ride will feature trackless technology that will take riders on the rooftops of Manhattan.  Once guests board their custom ECTO-1 ride vehicles, they will battle iconic Ghostbusters characters, including Slimer, Gozer and Stay Puft!

Here is the description via the official Motiongate Dubai website:

There’s something strange in the neighbourhood. Who they gonna call? You!

Duty will soon call and you’ll become the new recruit of the Ghostbusters team to help save the city! This high-stake and interactive ride will take you to the Temple of Gozer where you join an epic rooftop battle. Show off your ghost-busting skills in the shooting games and save New York City!

And get this.  There will even be a Ghostbusters Boy Band show just outside the firehouse.  Awesome.  Right?  And there will even be a Slimer’s Diner, where guests can try, of course, a green slime slush.
