Coney Island [1] is a neighborhood in southwestern Brooklyn known for its amusement parks.

HistoryEdit

In 1944, a very young Jonas Schultz watched as Luna Park burned to the ground. [2] He lived his whole life wishing it to come back, just as it was. Over the years, the good will generated by amusement parks on Coney Island were absorbed by a pool of Psychomagnotheric Slime below in the sewers. [3] In the present, while on a bust, Ray Stantz made a slight error on his calculations and almost sank Coney Island. A few years later, on the morning of his death at 4:13 am, Jonas manifested as a ghost. Empowered by the pool of positively charged Psychomagnotheric Slime below in the sewers, Jonas was able to generate a construct of Luna Park over its former site. He watched in awe. Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore trapped Jonas while Egon Spengler and Ray tried to neutralize the slime with negative emotions. Egon urinated into the pool and Ray used a Proton Grenade. They underestimated the reaction and the slime flowed to the surface, raining down all over Coney's communities. The mostly neutralized slime animated some playground equipment and it ran off. [4] A week later, the EPA decided to fine the Ghostbusters for willingly introducing a toxic element to a residential area as well as the Paranormal Contracts Oversight Commission for not being able to keep them in check. To make matters worse, the projected fine would financially ruin the Ghostbusters. To circumvent it, Peter pitched an idea for a fantasy camp that could double as a recruiting program.
