If you were a kid in the 1980s, there may have been nobody in the world quite as cool as Ferris Bueller. The character portrayed by Matthew Broderick in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was the coolest teenager in the world, capable of getting away with anything. If you ever daydreamed of being just like him, a new contest is going to give you that chance. Just in time for the movie’s 30th anniversary, you can recreate the famous day off by going to all of the places that Ferris went with his friends on that fateful trip.

The contest is a joint collaboration between Fathom Events, who is running screenings of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off this month as part of the film’s anniversary, and GroupOn. Between now and May 16, you can enter to win a trip to Chicago that will include spending time at all of the major landmarks seen in the film. You can go to the Willis Tower (formerly Sears) deck, visit the Art Institute of Chicago, and have lunch at the Everest restaurant. In addition, you’ll be able to attend a “hometown baseball game.” For some reason, it does not mention the Chicago Cubs or Wrigley Field, which was the location used in the film, whether it was an issue of not having the rights to use the names, or because the game will not be at Wrigley Field is not clear. Finally, you’ll get a luxury sports car rental in order to get you from place to place. Just be careful which valet you leave it with.

This is only one of the ways that fans are celebrating the anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. If you’re already in the city of Chicago later this month, the city is planning Ferris Fest, where fans can sit in the same seats at Wrigley Field where the famous friends chanted at players, and see a recreation of the parade float where Matthew Broderick did a Lip Sync Battle worthy rendition of “Twist and Shout.” You’ll miss out on these festivities if you win the trip, however, as that prize won’t get you to Chicago until July.

So, if you always wanted to be Ferris Bueller, you have a chance to walk in those footsteps. Who did you think was the coolest kid of 80’s cinema? Was there somebody else you’d rather have been when you were that age?
