Inside* the Goodyear Blimp (and No, We’re Not Kidding)

Inside* the Goodyear Blimp (and No, We’re Not Kidding)

The blimp will be available for three one-night stays on October 22, 23 and 24.

The Airbnb host for the listing is none other than Jerry Hissem, Goodyear's chief pilot. The bookings lead up to one of college football's biggest rivalries-the Notre Dame vs. MI game that kicks off on October 26. The booking does not include a ride in the blimp, which will be docked at Wingfoot Lake Airship Hangar in Mogadore - the world's oldest airship base, according to Goodyear.

To celebrate 150 years of college football, Goodyear is working with Airbnb and offering one-night stays in the blimp for $150 a night, plus taxes and fees.

Lakefront spot with a grill, fire pit, cornhole, and other tailgate essentials, flawless for taking in views of the sunset and maybe even the resident bald eagles soaring by.

A stay runs only $150 a night-if you're lucky enough to snag a reservation.

In terms of sleeping arrangements, there is one bed located inside the Blimp itself, as well as one bathroom.

The cost is around $150 per night, and a blimp stay for two comes with two tickets to the game, exclusive access to the blimp hangar and more.

"Your Blimp accommodations will have you doing a touchdown dance", the listing reads.

The 192-foot-long, football-shaped airship bearing the company's blue-and-yellow logo is synonymous with Saturday game days, and has been providing aerial coverage over the gridiron since 1955.

Many sports-loving Americans can say they've spotted one of Goodyear's famous blimps hovering overhead at a football game.

The signature blimp is also being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a honorary member, becoming the first non-player or coach to be given recognition.

The company said it will roll out opportunities to book a stay throughout the day on October 15, so fans should keep an eye on the Airbnb listing.
