This 7-Eleven store got a gaming makeover, and I want to spend the night

...If only I lived in Dallas County, Texas

If you reside in Dallas County, Texas, you have a chance to spend the night in what I think is the ultimate gamer’s paradise: a 7-Eleven complete with snacks, a Slurpee machine, and the hard-to-find PS5 available to use during your stay.

Starting February 1st, residents who are 18 years or older will have the chance to spend $11 for one night in the utopia for gamers before it opens to the public. However, the rules are a bit strict as two gamers from the same household who book the experience through Airbnb’s website will have the chance to spend the night. Only two dates are available: February 26th and February 28th.

During their stay, two lucky guests will have access to the store, which has a futuristic gaming aesthetic, and it is truly #gamingroomgoals. There’s a game pod that includes a big-screen TV, some comfy-looking furniture, and did I mention there was a PS5, too? Not only that, but guests will also have access to an exclusive one-hour streaming session on Twitch with FaZe Temperrr.

Guests will have access to drinks and snacks available inside the store, including an all-you-can-drink Slurpee machine, tacos from the Laredo Taco Company, and all the Doritos and Mtn Dew you can drink.

As a gamer, I was deeply upset that I am ineligible to try to book a night at this 7-Eleven store due to living in Maryland. I mean, I have a PS5, sure, but do you know how many brain freezes I could have achieved with access to an all-you-can-drink Slurpee machine? There are endless opportunities for fun to be had in just one night. But don’t take my word for it; check out the pictures and see for yourself.

This is not the first time limited-time stays were available through Airbnb. In September, the company allowed residents in LA County to spend the night in the same mansion featured in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In August, Deschutes County, Oregon residents could have a ‘90s-themed sleepover at the last remaining Blockbuster video store, and in 2019, you could stay at the Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse for just $60 a night.
