One fun tradition that Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood has is that each night a new password is shared on their official Twitter account (@HorrorNights). This year, if you share the password with Ghostbusters character Louis Tully (played by Rick Moranis in the film), he’ll give you his business card as a keepsake. You’ll find this character wandering around the entrance to the maze.
