To celebrate National Ice Cream Day on July 18, two pairs of travelers will get to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — staying overnight in a decked out ice cream truck. Yes, really.

Booking.com created what they call an “ice cream lover’s paradise” in the back of a totally-customized ice cream truck. It’s a fully-functioning dessert delivery service parked in New York City’s Union Square and it’s stuffed to the brim with sweet, melty fun including a stocked-up ice cream fridge, a milkshake-making station, and an all-you-can-eat toppings bar.

And yes, there’s even a double bed big enough for two so you can get comfy while you eat ice cream to your heart’s content.

But the fun happening inside the truck is only part of the experience. Those who nab a booking will also receive an ice cream-themed weekend itinerary filled with awesome experiences like a Downtown Manhattan ice cream shop walking tour and tickets to the Museum of Ice Cream.

If you’d like to score a sugary-sweet overnight, head over to Booking.com’s Ice Cream Truck listing on Friday, July 16 at 10 a.m. ET. There are only two nights available to book — Saturday, July 17 or Sunday, July 18, and your overnight will only set you back $7.18 (to commemorate the date of National Ice Cream Day). You just have to be over 21 years old and provide a valid photo ID and credit card when you arrive at the truck. Bathrooms and showers are located in a nearby trailer.

The only downside to this stay is that you may suffer a bit of brain freeze while you’re there — but so be it! Bring on the ice cream.
