It was not long ago that Paris, France was saying no to everything AirBnb but it seems they have finally settled their differences. They are getting along so well they have decided to run a promotion for Halloween night in the city’s catacombs. Sounds like a luxurious adventure right? Forget the Haunted Houses this Halloween this will haunt you for the rest of your lives if you can survive this night in terror. The final resting place of 6 million souls has got to be one of the most desired places to be for a truly haunted evening.
You get to sleep inside a 200-mile underground labyrinth lined with 6 million skulls if you win this contest. One night only in a “bedroom” within the terrifying tunnels for the night of Halloween or October 31, 2015.
Not sure this will be much better than a stay at the Bates Motel or the American Horror Story’s Hotel Chateau Marmont. Maybe if you freak out and decide not to stay the night you still gain a historical tour of the site, dinner, a “private concert,” and a bedtime storyteller who will share the tales of the massive tomb. That actually sounds amazing.
To enter for a stay at Les Innocents is log onto Airbnb and submit up to 550 words explaining why you think you are brave enough to sleep in the catacombs. AirBnb will notify a winner after October 21. If you do not have an AirBnb Account then Sign-up here and get a $20 Credit for Future stays plus a chance to win this stay.
There’s also an incentive to stay the entire night because… Breakfast is included. Not there is also a First aid kit included in the amenities so that should keep your anxiety down for the night. Sorry, no Xanax is included.
Here is some history of this historic tunnel in the “bowels of Paris”:
The Catacombs, known as “The World’s Largest Grave,” were created in the late 18th century as a bone repository for the overflowing Cemetery of the Innocents. “Les Innocents” had been the crowded city’s main cemetery since the Middle Ages, and had become a source of sickness. So, the remains—mostly from mass graves—were dumped 65 feet underground. The Catacombs opened to the public soon after, and have been a popular tourist attraction ever since.
