Life-size sandcastle opens at Luna Park

Posted: Updated:

It's not every day you come across a life-size sandcastle in the city.

Now there is one, and it's open for guest stays this weekend. The "Sand-Sion" will be available to visitors who want to have the experience of staying overnight in a sandcastle.

The sandcastle is right in the heart of Luna Park in Brooklyn. It is 8 feet tall and 18 feet wide, and is the largest sandcastle in ever built in the city.

It features a bed, lounge chair, air-conditioning and a bathroom a few feet away.

The sandcastle is a collaboration between Bookings.com and Luna Park. It was designed by renowned artist Matt Long.

News 12 spoke to some visitors who said they were willing to try the sandcastle for one night.
