Have dreams of being a Ghostbuster? Ride sharing company Lyft is going to try and make them come true this weekend.

Residents of New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. will all have the chance to ride in the all-new Ecto-1 this weekend, designed for the new Ghostbusters film which will hit theaters on July 15.

Those looking for a ride must tap the ‘Ghost Mode’ button between the hours of 10am – 6pm on July 1 or 2. Each rider will also get some free Hi-C along with a Ghostbusters themed Twinkie.

The original Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis that was specially built while the modern reincarnation is based on a 1989 Cadillac Brougham.

Lyft has done this type of thing before when the brand offered rides in a DeLorean around New York City to celebrate Back to the Future.
