The Goodyear Blimp is on Airbnb — here’s how you can stay in it

Ever wanted to spend the night in a blimp?

And it’s not just any blimp.

Now you can book a stay in the world-famous Goodyear Blimp, although, unfortunately, it won’t be airborne while you’re staying there.

In honor of the 150th anniversary of college football this year, it’s the first time anybody will be allowed to stay overnight in the blimp, which is resting comfortably in its hangar in Mogadore, Ohio, just outside of Akron.

For $150 a night (because of the 150th anniversary, of course), those who book a stay will get access to the hangar, which according to Airbnb is the size of 2.6 football fields. You’ll also have access to a football lounge, a lakefront area with a grill, fire pit and cornhole, space to invite friends over (even though only two people can actually stay in the blimp) and tickets to the Notre Dame vs. Michigan game in Ann Arbor on Oct. 26.

You can view the Airbnb listing here, but you won’t be able to request to book your stay until Oct. 15. There are only three nights available, so you’ll have to act fast so you can stay in the blimp on Oct. 22, 23 or 24.

Airbnb did not say how the reservations will be accepted, but the listing says: “Reservation opportunities will roll out throughout the day on October 15. Keep an eye on this listing page so you don’t fumble your chance to request a stay on your desired date.”

Airbnb and Goodyear will also donate $5,000 to the Cotton Bowl Foundation.
