Whether in person or on TV, we’ve all seen the Goodyear Blimp soaring high over a college football stadium at some point. Now, you have a chance to see the blimp in a whole new way — by actually sleeping inside it. The iconic blimp is now available for three one-night stays on Airbnb, to celebrate college football’s 150th anniversary. The stays will take place October 22 through 24, and will cost a pretty reasonable $150 for two guests.
Guests will be received in the blimp’s massive hangar in Mogadore, Ohio, where pilot Jerry Hissem will teach you about what it’s like to fly the Goodyear Blimp for a living. The hangar will be equipped with an AstroTurf football lounge, including a TV and fully stocked bar, so you can enjoy all the college games. If you’d rather spend your time outdoors, however, you can also choose to head to the nearby Wingfoot Lake State Park, with a lakefront area outfitted with a grill, fire pit, and cornhole.
When night rolls around, you’ll be sleeping in the blimp’s gondola — the bottom part that usually holds the pilot and crew — which maximizes the small space with armchairs, a nook, and a sofa bed.
And once the experience is over, guests will receive complimentary tickets to the Michigan-Notre Dame football game on October 26, which also includes fan gear.
Reservations for the blimp open on October 15.
