You’re feeling inspired by all the epic travel videos making news lately, but jet setting away remains a distant dream. Thankfully, the geniuses at Airbnb have come to the rescue with a creepy-cool contest in the spirit of Halloween. One lucky winner gets to spend the holiday sleeping in a Parisian catacomb!


If you’re unfamiliar with the word, catacombs isn’t a fancy word for a kitty salon. It’s a mass grave that houses the bones (and ghosts?) of many historical French figures. The wildest part of all: more than six million people are buried here!


Winners of this spooky sleepover will get a tour of the facility before getting to “savor a dazzling culinary experience while enjoying a private concert in the most incredible acoustics under the earth.” After dinner (assuming you can keep anything down) “a storyteller will have you spellbound with fascinating tales from the catacombs.” This description almost sounded innocuous until Airbnb ended with this zinger “Finally, enjoy dawn with the dead, as you become the only living person ever to wake up in the catacombs.” Like zoinks, Scoob!

Disclaimer: there are no bathrooms or WiFi so you won’t be able to document the moment for all the world to see until the next day. To enter, craft a fantastic, original spooky story in 100-words or less about why you’re brave enough to take on the adventure. Contestants will be judged on originality and the tale’s relation to the catacombs.
