Ghost Adventures host Zak Bagans, just dropped an incredible amount of money on Ghostbusters memorabilia. Bagans, 42, will most likely display the items in his Las Vegas Haunted Museum.
Zak spent more than $310K on the memorabilia.
People shared news that Zak spent more than $310K purchasing the Ghostbusters items. Bagans, 42 said, “I’m a DIE-HARD Ghostbusters fan and being able to actually own the screen-used Hero Ghost Trap prop, used for all the close-up and special effects scenes in both Ghostbusters films, is like a dream come true.” Zak continued, “I grew up watching Ghostbusters and wanted to be one… look at what I’m doing now!”
Zak jokingly added that instead of hunting Slimer like the Ghostbusters, he is hunting real ghosts and demons.
Bagans is also a huge fan of the late Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler. Ramis passed away in 2014. Zak shared that he has Ramis’ whole costume from Ghostbusters on display in his Haunted Museum now. It’s right next to the Ghost Trap where Zak says it belongs. He says it’s there for all paranormal fans to appreciate.
Which props did Bagans acquire?
Daily News shared that Zak dropped $230K alone just to purchase the Hero Ghost Trap prop. In addition to the trap, Zak also purchased Harold Ramis’ entire jumpsuit, including his utility belt, boots and a proton pack shell.
Zak said of Ramis, “I was sad when he passed away, but I think he would think it’s very cool to have his whole costume on display at my haunted museum.”
