X mas gift for my son. He tried it once and after that it didn't close. If he wasn't so excited I would not buy it again. Exchange policy forces you to buy it again while sending the old one back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Don't buy product!
By Disappointed costumer
I do not recommend this product because after opening it for not even a whole week the doors wouldn't open anymore or the doors wouldn't close fully. The sound that it makes wouldn't stop making noises because the doors don't close fully so the sound keeps going and going. This is just an awful product to waste your money on.

My son loves this trap. To have a replica Item from one of his favourite movies is really cool.
About Me Midrange Shopper
My son has been into Ghostbusters since he was 2. He has asked for a ghost trap and made many of his own out of various things. He lost his mind when he got this as a gift. He is 7 now and one thing he learned the hard way is not to lift the trap doors on your own without pushing the button. It ruins the open/shut mechanism.

The Absolute Best
By Burr Selfiedad
For you GB's out there that wanted to show off the ghost you trapped, but didn't want to take out your really expensive Matty one, this is PERFECT.Light weight and easy to clip on your belt, this trap looks awesome when you show up. Very close to looking movie quality, this trap is a steal at the price.
Good for a basic trap!

About Me High-end Shopper
I purchased the ghost trap so that I could modify it to be closely match the screen used prop. It's not bad as is, and if you're going for a budget costume to a Halloween party, I doubt anyone would be able to tell that it's not super accurate. The prop is missing the peddle portion of the prop, and the plastic is pretty brittle. In addition, the doors don't fully close. The paint also leaves a bit to be desired. All that said, if you use a coupon, then the price is worth it. There are files on the internet that can be 3D printed and hardware than can be purchased to make this a close representation of the trap used in the movie!
Definitely Worth Purchasing!
By Stay Puft
My 5yr old son absolutely loves the original Ghostbusters so when we decided to recreate Ghostbuster scenes as a surprise for his birthday - we couldn't go past this amazing life-like replica of the movie ghost trap!From the lights to the Slimer noises, everything about this toy is amazing! This is definitely as good as the thousand dollar equivalent that you buy elsewhere. From 1 Ghostbuster fan to another, this is well worth it.
Been looking for this for years!
from Mill Creek, Washington
My 6 yr old twins are obsessed with Ghostbusters but I wasn't about to pay hundreds for a real replica. The lights, sounds and the ability to open and pretend it's real is awesome. They are going to freak when they see it. It's not a durable toy so they will need to be careful and know it's a special toy to take care of.
Nice looking but cheaply made-and no cale or peddle
1. the staff in the store was first rate and great service and kind and friendly and very accommodating 2. the product how ever is low grade quality the door that open and close broke after a few uses and got stuck and would not close back down-- the handle is so cheap it started to crack after holding it bye it handle after a few times 3.the trap is also missing a key element to it no black tubing cable and push peddle to open and close it how do you make a trap with out this and still charge 50.00 bucks for it id of paid more for one with these options that I could really use in cosplay that I could toss on to floor and push roll it out then open the trap door with the push peddles and bright lights and multiple sounds .4. the pke meter I bought was also bad that also broke and got stuck after a few uses of normal use after just few hours of giving candy out on Halloween that all I did with it ..also none of the button on it did any thing but just light up and one of the ones I bought had one light burnt out which I saw when I got home and had to go all way back to return it and replace it --thank fully the folks here where nice enough to switch them out for me :) thanks again for that its customer service like that the keeps me coming back every year :)
Great movie quality prop.
Top trap for the price
By Ghost Hunter S
from Morris Plains, NJ
A must buy for original ghost busters fans. Add some grey to edges to make it look metal and used. Nu cable for foot pedal, but lights and sounds with button on handle.
By GB Fan
Looks great and a lot cheaper in price than Mattel, but also cheaper in quality. Broke with light use the first day I got it!! Luckily the manager at my local store let me exchange and now it just sits on my shelf. It's just for looks folks, the doors break easily and sorry NO REFUNDS, only exchanges.
Great prop and belt hangar
By Troy W.
from Tampa, FL
The secret is out! This ghost trap makes a great base for high-end cosplayers to build up into a very nice piece of Ghostbuster gear. It's light enough to hang on a belt, but sturdy enough to take modifications to make it more realistic. Many Ghostbuster franchise groups use these as a base, disassemble it, sand it down, repaint it, weather it, and add more "bling" to make it look more like the on-screen movie props. It comes with lights and sounds and is ready to go right out of the box. I bought mine the day before a charity event and it was fantastic. You'll want to buy two - one to keep as a spare, and one to mod-up as much as you want. Get them while you can!
Overall this is a really nice prop it has awesome lights and sounds and looks extremely accurate my only complaint was that it feels a little delicate but other than that it's not bad at all

Awesomeness I bought 4 of theses
A Great Item!
By Egon The Restructor
from Vancouver, B.C.
When I first laid eyes on this item, I was floored at how cool and acurate the design was. I love Ghostbusters. I grew up with it and still admire the awesome comedy and characters. The designs of the tech were great too. That's what makes these items so awesome. The attention to detail is spot on. The only drawback may be that it's a tad too delicate with the trap door. I'm just thrilled that SPIRIT has taken over the market from one of the worst companies ever created. Yup...that would be RUBIES. The RUBIES legacy is thankfully being erased from store shelves as they created, or shall we say, spat out....horrible quality items that were simply garbage. Thank you SPIRIT for making Haloween fun again.
Totally worth the wait!

About Me Adventurous
I really like everything about it. Looks pretty accurate in my opinion. I will be weathering it. Prepping it will not be a challenge. Not crazy about the open and close button for the trap doors. I can tell it's going to give me problems down the line. I will find a way to improve it. Too bad they are already sold out. Would like to buy another.
Great Prop/Costume Accessory for a great price!
Great Ghostbuster's prop/costume accessory especially for the price.Here's hoping Spirit Halloween comes out with some prop/costume reproductions form Ghostbusters 2 next year (e.g. Slime-blower, gigameter, Vigo painting)!
Busting Makes me Feel Good

I love this trap! I love the slightly longer design and weight of it. The sounds and lights are bright and paired great with the spirit proton pack. I do wish it came with the foot pedal but that's not s deal breaker. This is also great for any modding
1 day later the doors break. That's just lovely.

About Me Cool
As soon as i got this day 1, it was amazing. But 24 hours later, it breaks, the doors don't open and close properly. When it closes 1 of the doors hangs open. And even worse is that the screws are screwed in way too tight, almost like they're super glued to the shell. Meaning i can't fix it what so ever. I don't recommend to anyone unless they really want some Inviteable disappointment.
