Are you afraid of ghosts? If you said no, you may have what it takes to be a Ghostbuster. In addition to busting ghosts with your proton pack, you can stay in a Ghostbusters firehouse with Vacasa as well. Vacasa and Sony have teamed up to give one group of friends the chance of a lifetime (or afterlife-time) to stay in a Ghostbusters-themed firehouse for Halloween. The best part of all is that your ‘Gram-worthy booking is also super budget-friendly.

While you know that the actual Ghostbusters firehouse you see in the films is located in New York City, this Ghostbusters Firehouse experience is happening in Portland, Oregon instead. Despite it being on the opposite coast, you will really feel as if you’re in Manhattan the second you step inside. The early 1900s three-story firehouse home has been fully decorated with props and decor that not only make it feel authentic, but also make it the perfect backdrop for some Insta-worthy snaps as well. If you end up being the lucky guest who gets to call this Ghostbusters home your own for the weekend, you’ll even have some Ghostbuster flight suits to wear so you can get into costume as you’re testing out ghost traps and screening calls from Janine’s desk. For anyone ready to take one of those calls and have an epic Halloween stay, you’ll need to set an alarm in order to book the Ghostbusters firehouse.
