Danny Fenton was a 14 year old boy, who had ghost hunting parents. His parents had built a machine that led into the Ghost Zone, which was an alternate dimension of Earth, where ghosts roam free. There are many dimensions inside of the Ghost Zone, of course, all which have a door that leads to another portal, either back into the ghost zone, or to the next dimension.
