Airbnb Introduces ‘Icons’ Experiences with X-MEN Mansion and Floating UP House

Airbnb has been putting together some fun fannish experiences for a long time. But now this category of stay has a brand new category behind it, Airbrb “Icons” experiences. Airbnb shares that the new Icons category includes “extraordinary experiences hosted by the greatest names in music, film, television, art, sports, and more. Icons let you step into worlds you’ve only ever dreamed of.” Hopefully, this means that not only will we see a greater depth and breadth of fun fandom Airbnb houses, but also that more people get to stay in them. Airbnb is kicking off its Icons category with 11 special icons that include X-Men ’97‘s X-Mansion (yes, in 2D) and a balloon-filled Up house that actually floats. Let’s take a deeper look at some of the upcoming Airbnb Icons that are particularly nerdy.

X-Men ’97 has captured the hearts of fans, new and old, with its perfect storm of wonderful nostalgia and excellent storytelling. Now, Airbnb Icons invites you to join the team and stay in the X-Mansion from X-Men ’97. We know it’s this specific X-Mansion because everything is 2D.

Airbnb shares about this iconic X-Men stay:

Live like the X-Men as you stay in a 2D animated re-creation of Marvel Animation’s X-Mansion in Westchester, New York. You’ll discover your mutant abilities and even train in the Danger Room. 

You can take a look at more images from the X-Men ’97 X-Mansion Airbnb below.

Who doesn’t want to float into the sky like the characters on Up do in their balloon-laden house? Well, as long as it’s safe, we do. Hopefully, this Airbnb Up house won’t hit any inclement weather because it does seem kind of cool, and, undoubtedly, it will make you tear up just a little bit.

Airbnb shares of this Icons experience:

Sleep inside one of Disney and Pixar’s most iconic homes—and yes, it floats. You’ll explore Carl’s world in this detailed re-creation of his home, complete with more than 8,000 balloons, and located in the scenic red rocks of Abiquiu, New Mexico.

8,000 is A LOT of balloons.

The final nerdy outing from Airbnb offers you a chance to get a little emotional with Inside Out 2. Like Riley’s emotions, you can find yourself in Headquarters. Just don’t bring any negative feelings with you, please!

Airbnb shares:

In anticipation of the June 14 release of Disney and Pixar’s new movie Inside Out 2, you’re invited to an overnight stay at Headquarters, the control center of Riley’s emotions. Your host, Joy, will welcome you into her vibrant world to witness the emotions in action and help keep things in balance. 

When Can You Stay in the Airbnb Icons Inside Out 2 Experience?

There’s no specific timing mentioned for the Airbnb Inside Out 2 experience. However, Airbnb does stipulate that it will happen “in anticipation” of June 14.

Airbnb’s Icons Experiences Promise More Fantastical Adventures to Come

This sounds like just the beginning of the Airbnb Icons fun. In addition to the three Airbnb Icons experiences detailed above, the first set of Icons releases also includes a night at the Ferrari Museum, an evening with Kevin Hart, a stay at the Musée d’Orsay, a session with Doja Cat, a stay in Prince’s Purple Rain house, a gaming experience with  Khaby Lame, a tour bus experience with Feid, and an evening with Bollywood star, Janhvi Kapoor.

Brian Chesky, Airbnb co-founder and CEO shares of these Icons experiences, “Icons take you inside worlds that only existed in your imagination—until now. As life becomes increasingly digital, we’re focused on bringing more magic into the real world. With Icons, we’ve created the most extraordinary experiences on Earth.”

Hopefully our favorite movies and TV shows will get the Airbnb Icons treatment. Personally, we hope for a stay in Fallout‘s vaults sometime soon.
