During a Mardi Gras celebration in the 1980s, Tulane hosted the International Para-Psychological Expo. The Ghostbusters drove from New York to New Orleans to attend this expo. However, they became focused on defeating the ghost Malachi. Without their equipment, the team went to Tulane and bought spare parts at the expo to quickly construct a makeshift Proton Pack and Trap.
