If there's a big game, chances are the Goodyear Blimp is there. The beloved Blimp has been providing aerial coverage of games since 1955 and later this season will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame - the first non-player or coach to ever receive the honor.

Leading up to the Blimp providing aerial coverage of the rivaled college football game in Ann Arbor, MI, on October 26, you could score an overnight stay in the iconic airship, along with tickets to the game later that week.

The space
Sure, you’ve tailgated off the back of a pickup truck, but how about a Blimp?

Your Blimp accommodations will have you doing a touchdown dance. From the grill and fire pit to the cornhole toss, you’ll have everything you need for proper pre-game tailgate festivities. And it all takes place in the Mogadore, OH, hangar large enough to field a 99-yard pass… or hold a Blimp.

In the evening, you can step outside to enjoy the sunset over Wingfoot Lake with maybe even bald eagles soaring nearby before you retire to your cozy sleeping quarters inside the Blimp’s gondola.

You can then sport your brand-new gear to show your pride as you head off to the game.

Other things to note:

Like any good team player, it’s important to follow the playbook. So, stick to the house rules outlined below.

Reservation opportunities will roll out throughout the day on October 15. Keep an eye on this listing page so you don’t fumble your chance to request a stay on your desired date.

This is not a contest.

Mogadore, Ohio, United States

Known as "the Kitty Hawk of lighter-than-air aviation," the Wingfoot Lake Airship Hangar is the world's oldest airship base, dating back to 1917. In that time, Goodyear has built more than 200 blimps, including its three current airships.

I’m Jerry Hissem, a Chief Pilot with Goodyear Airship Operations’ blimp based at Wingfoot Lake in Suffield, Ohio. While I appreciate a good tailwind, even in a strong head wind, the Goodyear Blimp is just a lot of fun to fly. I have a lot of favorites on the job but mostly, it’s getting to know all of my passengers. On a 10-seater airship, that’s thankfully easy to do. Ask me about our unique takeoffs and landings, or my favorite pastime and hobby - building an aluminum 2-seat tail dragger airplane for the past seven years! If you haven’t guessed already, I love all things that fly.
