We Rode Around In A Ghost Mobile Replica From The "Ghostbuster" Movie

Who ya gonna call?!

Posted on

And today, we had the opportunity to take a ride in a replica of the Ecto-1, which is modeled just like the original.

In honor of the new Ghostbusters movie, which hits theaters on July 15, Lyft is offering a special service called Ghost Mode. On Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2, fans of the film can request a free ride in the Ecto-1 between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. if you live in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, or Washington D.C.


Our trusted driver Jim agreed to take us around the block, so we hopped in the front seat and embarked on a [quick] journey for all of New York City to witness.

Well, at least everyone who saw us driving around near Gramercy Park.


We were basically living the dream (amongst the dead).

.@AlannaBennett and I literally rode around in a ghost mobile today, things got pretty crazy

Everyone was definitely staring.


Before we knew it, our awesome ride was over and we had to leave the ghost mobile so other people could enjoy it. But we definitely felt like ghost-busting champs at the end of it!
