How Much Would It Cost to Be a Ghostbuster?


According to a recent survey of Swagbucks members, over 30% weren’t afraid of no ghosts and would be willing to pursue a career as a Ghostbuster! Pretty surprising though, considering all the positive press Ghostbusting has been getting in preparation for Ghostbusters debut in theaters July 15th. However, the real costs of bustin’ may put it outside of their price range even if you save on movie tickets with a Fandango Gift Card


The Cost of Being a Ghostbuster

1-jumpsuit-headerJumpsuit – $29.99 – The most affordable part of Ghostbusting, even if you shelled out a little extra for patches and name tags.

2-startupfees-headerStartup Fees – Approx. $2,000 – Starting a new business is never cheap. The Ghostbusters operate out of The Big Apple, one of America’s most expensive cities.

3-hearse-headerCustom Hearse – $7,000 – The new Ghostbusters are rolling in style with a custom 1980’s Cadillac Hearse. You’ll have to spend extra for all the bells and whistles.


4-firehouse-headerFirehouse Rental – $910,600 – You can’t be a true Ghostbuster with no HQ! Unfortunately, leasing costs are pretty high in Tribeca, where the building from the 1984 film still stands.


Proton Pack $20,000,000 – Those hefty backpacks worn by the Ghostbusters are basically unlicensed nuclear accelerators, and those do not come cheap. Might be time to take out a small business loan.


7-master-containment-unitMaster Containment Unit – $14,000,000,000 – The closest you’ll get to a working model is ITER, an international large-scale science experiment to build a fusion generator. While it’d be strong enough to hold a ghost, it’ll also do quite a number on your bank account.


8-muon-trap-wandProton Wand and Muon Trap – $125,000,000,000,000 – Ignoring the fact that stable antimatter doesn’t exist in our universe, the price of antimatter is $62,500,000,000,000 per gram, and we’re guessing that it’d take more than 2 grams of antimatter to catch and hold a ghost indefinitely.

Total Cost = $125,014,020,919,629.99

Now that’s expensive! I don’t want to slime all of your hopes and dreams but I think it’s safe to say you’re better off sticking with your day job. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop dreaming and what better way to dream of Ghostbusting then enjoying a night at the movies with a Fandango Gift Card.
