Six Flags St. Louis contest to reward people who stay in coffin for 30 hours

EUREKA, Missouri  (KRON) — If you like small spaces and being in the dark, Six Flags St. Louis has got a challenge for you.

The theme park is hosting a Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge starting Oct. 13. The challenge runs from 1 p.m. that Saturday to 7 p.m. the next day.

What does that entail exactly? 

Well, Six Flags St. Louis will provide 6 lucky participants with these items: 

  • 2-foot-by-7-foot “slightly used” coffins. 
  • Meals, snacks, drinks. 
  • One six-minute bathroom break every hour. 
  • Phone-charging stations.
  • Random visits by “Fright Fest Freaks.”

Anyone who exits their coffins for any other reason than those alllowed will be disqualified. 

Participants can bring their own pillows, sleeping bags and blankets, though, to do their best to stay comfortable during their time inside. 

We’d also like to repeat that there will be phone charging stations inside the coffin, so you can Instagram and Snapchat the heck out of that coffin. 

All coffin dwellers who make it 30 hours will receive the Season Passes and a Fright Fest package.

If there’s more than one person remaining after 30 hours, officials say there will be a random drawing for the $300 prize. The winner also will receive two 2019 Gold Season passes, a Fright Fest prize package, two VIP Haunted House passes, and a ticket for two to ride the “freak Train” for October’s Freak Unleashed events. 

The winner can also take the coffin home to keep. 

Participants must be at least 18 years old. If you think you can spend 30 hours in a coffin, you must submit your registration form before midnight Oct. 3.
