The Ghostbusters Adventure Live! at Lynton V. Harris Scream Park Sunway Lagoon

Bandar Sunway, 25 July 2016 – Ghosts and Ghouls took over Sunway Lagoon and only one ghost-busting foursome could put the sinister creatures to rest. Sunway Lagoon’s Lynton V. Harris Scream Park unveiled the first Ghostbusters attraction of its kind in the world, The Ghostbusters Adventure Live!

The Ghostbusters arrive to save the day!

Ghostbusters inclusion into the park marks the biggest annual investment to date since the launch of Scream Park some seven years ago. The attraction occupies the entire top level of Scream Park and takes visitors through a 20-minute harrowing journey through locations based on the relaunch of the movie.

“Sunway Lagoon is excited to have such an internationally acclaimed attraction such as Ghostbusters. At Sunway Lagoon we are constantly working to provide our guests with the latest and the best. The Ghostbusters Adventure-Live! provides park-goers and fans alike with a unique and interactive journey through the Ghostbusters world,” said Calvin Ho, Senior General Manager of Sunway Theme Parks.

The good people of Sunway Lagoon graciously invited the media to an exclusive session where they made sure bloggers and members of the media were thoroughly spooked. So, I decided to ask my husband on a date which I suppose worked out to be a good idea as I was holding him tight crushing his hands all the way.
You will sure be safe with a Ghostbuster around

The interesting part of this attraction is the interaction between the spookee and the spooker and a cast of live actors. Be well prepared for unexpected surprises and thrills. 

Make sure to get a shot with the Ecto-1 

After getting our tickets to Sunway Lagoon we were guided straight to the Scream Park entrance. The Scream park is one of the first things you see when you enter the theme park making it hard to miss. To our delight there was Sunway Lagoon's version of the Ecto-1 just outside the entrance and some of us had the chance to snap a picture with it.

Inside we were given instructions on what to do and what not to do. Pretty simple really. "Don't touch the ghosts. They will jump out, come near but they wont touch you. Remember, don't touch the ghosts." 


Our journey started at Slimer's pad, filled with lots of Ghostbusters memorabilia that would surely thrill any fan. So, I would suggest that you watch the movie first to get a full experience though it's not necessary. We then reach the Aldridge Mansion – New York’s oldest private home and museum, where a handsome tour guide introduced us to the story of Gertrude Aldridge.

No Ghosts

A detour took us to New York Subway’s Seward Street Station and we alighted to visit Old Zhu’s Chinese Restaurant, the new headquarters of the new all-female Ghostbusters. Rowan’s basement was next on the agenda, followed by the infamous Mercado Hotel, set in the iconic Times Square in New York, where our journey ends in a spooky, scary and slimy finale.

The journey is to be taken in single file so put the bravest of all in front. In our case it was my dear hubby. He seemed pretty cool throughout tho I did here some grown men screaming haha.

I ain't afraid of no ghosts!
