Sleazy hotel

When using your PKE Meter to track Slimer, go up to Room 1206, to the right of the vase he is hiding in. The sounds coming from the door are of a man and a woman arguing (or doing something else).

Spider Witch preview

When hunting Slimer, you will find room 1221, the Spider Witch's room. Looking through the Paragoogles at the lower left decoration will reveal a glowing spider.

Peter's desk area

Look at the wall behind Peter's desk. Some of things found there are funny.

  • Newspaper clippings: "Teacher's Death was Natural", "OMG Ten Ghostbusters They are Gonna Blow Your Mind" , "Beware Central Park at Midnight" (good advice), "Vigo Painting Melted: It was awesome when it exploded"
  • Degrees: "Your Name Here", "Hey", "The Big Apple: To the Cause"

Spanish headlines

Back in the firehouse after the "Shador Island" level, there are Spanish newspapers thrown all over. The headline reads "Un Cubano En El Cosmos," which means "A Cuban in Space."

Rookie's real name

Check your messages when you get back from the Stay Puft Marshmallow level. The new person's father or friend says "You're doing adequate work out there Luke, keep it up!". This reveals that his name is Luke Hoss.

Ghost "thruster"

In the museum, when you are chasing the Chairman with Alyssa, you will enter an exhibit that shows the burial customs of the Gozerian Cult. Once you enter this room, immediately turn to the right and you will see three portraits in the dark. Use the Stasis Stream to illuminate the painting. You will see a skeleton creature kissing a woman, but he has pulled up her dress and appears to be touching her.

The Extreme Ghostbusters reference

When you are in the firehouse, go down by the containment unit. Look on one of the work desks to see a circular ghost trap that was used in the late 1990's cartoon called The Extreme Ghostbusters.

Fan fiction reference

Go upstairs at Ghostbusters headquarters. You can find a drawing by a child on pink paper hanging near some electrical equipment. The text "To Uncle Egon, from Ed." Appears on it. This is a reference to the fan fiction Ghostbusters videos "Freddy vs. Ghostbusters" and "The Return Of The Ghostbusters" which features Egon's nephew Ed Spengler.

Ghostbusters reference

  • When you are in the hotel ballroom with Slimer, press [Action] by the piano to sometimes hear the same notes that Peter played in Dana's apartment in the first movie.
  • In the Sedgewick Hotel level, you will pass room 1204 while hunting for Slimer. Inside you can hear the original Ghostbusters commercial from the movie. This is also a reference to Dana Barrett, who had a habit of leaving her television turned on too loud.

Ghostbusters II reference

  • In front of the water fountain in the firehouse is a window looking back into storage. You can see the "Ghostbusters II" sign and some doors from Ecto 1A.
  • When you are in the firehouse just before returning to the closed-up Sedgewick, play through the phone messages. You will hear a woman asking for the number to Ray's Occult bookstore.

Indiana Jones reference

One of the messages on the answering machine is from a Professor Jones who is trying to locate the Vigo painting, stating that it belongs in a museum.

Madame de Pompadour reference

The portrait of Ivo Shandor's mother we see on Shandor Island, is in fact modeled after Francois Boucher's 1750s portrait of Madame de Pompadour, courtesan to Louis the XV of France. Though a political and historically significant figure, she was essentially a prostitute.

NES Ghostbusters reference

Look at one of the monitors on a desk upstairs at the Ghostbusters headquarters. You can see the ending screen from Ghostbusters on the NES.

O.J. Simpson reference

One of the messages from the Vigo painting is a reference to the O.J. Simpson trial. It reads, "I see the evil in the times to come. The glove won't fit."

The Real Ghostbusters reference

In the basement, on the far work station there is a PKE meter modeled after the one from The Real Ghostbusters.

Watchmen reference

When listening to the answering machine messages, one will be of a man talking in a gruff voice asking, "Who busts the Ghostbusters?"
