'Coffin Challenge': Six Flags Looking for 6 Guests to Spend 30 Hours in a Coffin


Six Flags St. Louis in Missouri is offering up a frightful challenge just ahead of Halloween.

The Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge will see six guests take up residence in "slightly used" 2-by-7-foot coffins from 1 p.m. Oct. 13 to 7 p.m. Oct. 14 — a total of 30 hours. 

Don't worry, though — the caretakers aren't completely unreasonable. Every hour, the lucky chosen ones will be allowed one six-minute bathroom break. Food and water will be provided, and contestants will be allowed a friend to keep them company during the day.

At night, however ... you're on your own.

What do you get for completing such a task? Two 2019 Gold Season passes, a Fright Fest package that includes two VIP Haunted House passes and a ticket for two on the Freak Train, as well as $300. If there is more than one winner, the $300 will be awarded by random drawing.

Oh, and the coffin — you get to take that home too.
