Airbnb Offering Chance to Spend Halloween at Dracula's Castle

Whatever your Halloween plans are—trick-or-treating, attending a house party dressed as Ken Bone, what have you—we're guessing your evening won't be as memorable as the one that two contest winners will spend as part of a promotion from Airbnb.   

That pair will get to sleep at Dracula's castle in Romania—making them the building's first overnight guests since 1948. 

To apply, all you have to do is use your "vampiric wit" to come up with an answer to the question, What would you say to Count Dracula if you met him?

Winners will be flown to Romania and then taken to the Carpathian Mountains for a stay at Bran Castle, famous for its connection to Vlad the Impaler, who inspired Bram Stoker's 19th-century vampire story. 

The prize includes a tour of the castle, a candelit dinner in the grand dining room, and a meet-and-greet with one of Stoker's descendants, who'll be in character as Jonathan Harker from the novel. And yes, the winners will have the chance to sleep in coffins lined in red velvet (though there will also be beds nearby if that idea creeps them out too much).

Airbnb's rules for the evening: no garlic, silver jewelry, or mirror selfies.

The deadline for entering is Wednesday, October 26.
