From a Finding Dory-inspired night floating on the Great Barrier Reef to a slumber party at Taco Bell, quirky accommodations have been a mainstay of Airbnb’s business. Now, TripAdvisor Rentals is getting in on the fun with its new “Eye Spy A Home In The Sky” contest, which will see one lucky winner and a guest become the first people ever to spend the night in the London Eye. It’s a one-of-a-kind view, to be sure: the one-night-only hotel pod will be perched 443 feet above ground and offer 360-degree views of the city.

The contest is being presented in partnership with online retailer Wayfair, which has taken its design inspiration from a high-end rain forest retreat, so you can expect a glasshouse-style structure with lots of leafy foliage and natural textiles. TripAdvisor’s site describes it as being a roof-top garden with views of London from every angle.

The winner will be announced on March 20, and will hop aboard the London Eye on March 30. In addition to the sky-high stay, the winner and his or her guest will spend three nights at one of TripAdvisor Rentals’ nearby accommodations. Enter to win here — acrophobes need not apply.
