You can play PS5 games and drink Slurpees all night in a 7-Eleven Airbnb

Getting locked in a grocery store or minimart overnight and having a chance to raid all the snacks, candy, and drinks inside is probably everyone’s childhood dream.

Throw in a PlayStation 5 console with a wide screen TV, a luxury gaming chair and some bean bags, and you’ll probably never want to leave. 

In an enticing publicity stunt, 7-Eleven is offering lucky residents from Dallas County, Texas a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend the night in the ultimate gamer’s paradise: an elevated 7-Eleven store complete with snacks, Slurpee machine, and a rare PS5 console during their stay.

Starting in February this year, residents from Dallas County who are 18 years old or older can fork out just $11 (P529) for one night in this gaming utopia before it formally opens to the public.

Each night, two gamers from the same household who booked the experience through Airbnb.com will get to enjoy a private gaming paradise in the “completely decked out, never-been-shopped-in 7-Eleven Evolution Store.”

Sleeping arrangements in the 7-Eleven store include two reclining luxury lounge chairs and plush robes, slippers, blankets, pillows and more.

The listing on their Airbnb page reads:

Why sleep when you can PLAY ALL NIGHT?!? Hey, Dallas County gamers – this one’s for you! Get ready for the ultimate one-night game-cation featuring a Playstation®5 console and all the Slurpee® drinks you can drink. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for gamers to have all-night access to the hottest console of the year in the coolest 7-Eleven® store around.”

The 7-Eleven store has been completely transformed into a plush futuristic gaming den, complete with a game pod featuring a big screen TV, and luxury loungers. Best of all, gamers can finally get their hands on of the most coveted item of the year, the PlayStation 5 console, along with accessories and games.

Each overnight stay comes with an exclusive one-hour Twitch streaming session with popular gamer and founder of world-renowned gaming organization FaZe Clan, FaZe Temperrr. 

If that wasn’t enough, lucky guests also get access to all the 7-Eleven drinks and snacks inside the store, including a Slurpee drink station, Laredo Taco Company® tacos and other favorites such as Red Bull, MTN DEW and Doritos. 

According to its Airbnb listing, 7-Eleven is taking extra steps to protect its game-all-night guests during the pandemic. 

“Sanitation measures include a team of certified biohazard professionals disinfecting the location prior to guest arrival, along with health screenings for guests, personal protective equipment (PPE) and hand sanitizer stations,” the store states in their listing.

The Evolution Store is one of only six across the nation, where customers can try 7-Eleven’s latest innovations in a revolutionary store format.

The unique gaming experience hosted by 7-Eleven will be available to book starting Feb. 1, 2021, and is expected to sell out fast.

Here’s to hoping the concept is replicated in other parts of the world!

This is not the first time limited-time stays have been made available through Airbnb. In August last year, Deschutes County, Oregon residents got the chance to have a ‘90s-themed sleepover at the last Blockbuster video store in the world. In 2019, guests also had a chance to book a stay at the Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse.
