Drop everything, Venkman, we got one: A blast of ectoplasm will slime Universal Studios Hollywood this Halloween when a Ghostbusters-themed maze makes its debut during Halloween Horror Nights.

The maze is set to recreate some of the most memorable set pieces from the original Ghostbusters film—which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. Here’s the setup: You’re following in the footsteps of Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston as they set out to clean up some paranormal agents of chaos in New York. Familiar locales include the firehouse, New York Public Library and the interdimensional Temple of Gozer, all of which are teeming with “ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms”—Universal’s words, not ours, because yikes does “ectoplasm-dripping” sound gross.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Ghostbusters without its signature ghosts: The maze is set to include appearances from Slimer, Gozer the Gozerian and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man—though we’re not exactly sure what form, whether digital or analog or edible, that they’ll take.

Ghostbusters joins a bunch of other big-name properties in Universal’s annual after-hours, terror-filled event. This year’s Halloween Horror Nights run also includes mazes based on Stranger Things and the classic stable of Universal Monsters, along with the permanent The Walking Dead experience as well as five additional to-be-announced mazes.

Halloween Horror Nights and the Ghostbusters maze will first make its debut in Orlando, but you’ll be able to see it here in L.A. starting with a preview night on September 12, followed by the Halloween tradition’s regular run on select evenings from September 13 to November 3. Tickets cost between $67 and $77, depending on the evening.
