The Olive (also known as Olive Hotel and Casino) [1] is a hotel casino located in Las Vegas.


After a renovation project began at the Olive, a Vegas Ghost began haunting the hotel. It periodically bothered VIP guests but the Olive management was able to keep the haunting a secret for about a year. Eventually, they became worried their reputation would become tarnished. They contacted the Ghostbusters for help. In exchange for capturing the ghost discreetly, the Olive would give one Ghostbuster a free trip. Winston Zeddemore took up the offer and brought Tiyah Clarke with him. While Tiyah went to get a massage, Winston tracked the ghost to the basement. After a brief encounter, Winston gave chase to the ghost. It made its way to the kitchen on the second floor and formed a Meat Golem to possess. The bust crashed next door into a banquet room where the Ivo Shandor Awards were being held. Once Winston's Compact Pack ceased function, he hid in a hotel room and called Egon Spengler for help. After destroying the golem and trapping the ghost, Winston squared things with the Olive Manager then went for a massage.

The Olive began efforts to expand. During the closure and demolition of a small, run-down casino named the Golden Spade, the ghost of Ethan Kaine manifested. It tapped into the energy stored in a River of Slime underneath Las Vegas and wrecked havoc until Special Agent Melanie Ortiz and personnel contracted from the New York and Chicago branches of the Ghostbusters arrived. After Kaine's connection to the River of Slime was destroyed, every building except the Olive returned to normal. [2] Lou Kamaka and Dani Shpak captured Kaine.
