The very last Blockbuster in Bend, Deschutes County, Oregon, wanted to create a unique experience since it’s hard for people to go out these days.
So they partnered with Airbnb for just that!
Now fans of the franchise, or just people looking for a fun family activity had the chance to relive the days of VHS with a Blockbuster sleepover!
The experience will be available for single rentals on three different nights:
During those three nights, a party of four will be handed to the keys to the store, and will be allowed to relax in the experience over night!
As we’ve said, experiences and activations are fun, but you have to decide if they are right for you, and we created This article to help you make those decisions. As for what this activation is doing to help with that decision, they will be cleaning the location with enhanced cleaning protocols set forth by Airbnb with direction from the CDC. Additionally during the hand off of the keys, all parties must be wearing masks, and the location will provide additional face coverings, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer.
The space is listed as a “Studio” with one bed, and half a bath, but actually is a store with a pull out couch, and been bags and pillows.
The cost for this experience is only $4 a night! That’s almost as cheap as a rental at Blockbuster!
The ability to reserve the space is highly limited, and will go live on September 17th at 1:00 p.m. PST HERE, so I wouldn’t hold your breath that you will be able to snag this experience…
You can always make your own Blockbuster sleep over at home though!
