Next best thing to being in Florida in ’92

Imagine if you could get to see the entire Ghostbusters Spooktacular nearly 15 years after Universal Studios Florida closed it down. Well, maybe you can, after a fashion…

Being in the wrong country and being of the wrong age, I never got to see the Ghostbusters Spooktacular at Universal Studios Florida. I heard a lot about it and there are many fans who recall their visits fondly, but I missed it, as did many others, I’m sure. So I thought I’d try something – using the small handful of videos of the show, which can be found on YouTube, I was able to stitch together an entire run of the show. It’s not great video or audio in places, but the availability of a couple of Universal promotional videos allowed for a unique version of the show, not unlike watching a stage play on PBS. I apologize in advance for the sight and sound quality in places, but I hope those of you that never got to attend to show will find this illuminating and I hope that those of you that did get to attend find it reminiscent of your visit.

In case you’re wondering, yes, I am currently working on a version of the second version of the show. In time, I might even attempt the final version of the Ghostbusters at Universal Studios, their Great Fright Way show, which ran outside until 2005.
