Imagine, you're submerged in three million liters of water, surrounded by sharks, for an entire night, alone. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity could be a reality, because the Aquarium de Paris is having their first sleepover in their Shark Aquarium, and the feature will be a bedroom in a large plastic cylander that's lowered into the tank. The bedroom will provide 360-degree views of 35 sharks, circling around the room all night.
Airbnb is running a competition to allow a lucky couple to spend the night sleeping with sharks. Oh, and if you don't live in France, no worries, they'll fly you in, if you win. World record-breaking freediver, Fred Buyle will be your host for the evening, and he'll evening toss on his diving suit and swim with the sharks. In addition, you'll get a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium, and a sneak peak into the secret lives of sharks.
"During check-in, you’ll be shown to your bedroom for the night. Our home is your home, so get comfortable, as your host will dive into the tank and formally introduce you to a few of your neighbors for the evening. You’ll enjoy an intimate meal inside our aquarium, with gorgeous tank-side views of your favorite neighbors. Opened in 1867 and located in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Aquarium de Paris was the first built anywhere in the world. Your submarine bedroom will live on even after you leave, acting as an observatory for our biologists to study the behaviors of these majestic fish. How can you be the first to ever spend a night at home with the sharks? Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and why you belong with the sharks for a night by 11:59 p.m. CET on April 3rd, 2016. Submissions should be between 50-550 characters or less in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese and 50-300 character or less in Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), Japanese or Korean." - AirBnB
Here's some of the rules:
- No selfies after dark. Remember, sharks are sensitive to light.
- Avoid seeing Jaws before your sleepover. They’re kinder than you think!
- No sleepwalking or night swimming.
- No diving.
- Keep your heads and feet in the bedroom at all times.
