The Ali El-Baluu's Irksome Rug is a Cursed Artifact found in the Checking Out the Library level of Ghostbusters: The Video Game


A strangely buoyant Persian rug.


c.1256 Antique carpet imbued with the power of flight by minor Persian magus Ali El-Baluu. On its maiden flight around his palace, the rug dipped erratically, and the corpulent El-Baluu tumbled off while more than 90 feet in the air. He died instantly on impact.

Where to Find ItEdit

In the Field: After going into the alternate dimension of the library, right after defeating the first Book Golem, go straight up the center stairs and hit the portal on the left. Use your P.K.E. Meter to track down the rug which should be straight ahead.

At the Firehouse: Second floor in the sleeping quarters, closest to the main room door you use to enter it.


  • In Ghostbusters International #2, on page 10, in panel 1, on the right, is an advertisement of the Ali El-Baluu exhibit.
  • On page 10 of Ghostbusters 101 #5, panel 4, Ali El-Baluu's Irksome Rug is rolled up on the floor like it is after it is collected in the game.
