Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge

We're Dying to Celebrate with You!

Six Flags Great America is celebrating during Fright Fest 2019 with the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge. Six coffin dwellers will be chosen to spend 30 hours in a coffin, from 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 5 until 7:00 pm on Sunday October 6.

The Basics

Coffin dwellers must brave the 30 hours in their coffin alone and with no connection to the outside world. Well, not exactly alone, some of our Fright Fest freaks will be lurking about in the darkness. Anyone who gets out of their coffin for any reason, with the exception of challenges and designated bathroom breaks, will be out of the contest.

Coffin Dweller Requirements:

  • Must be 18 or older and have a valid photo ID;
  • Cannot have medical conditions that would make lying in a coffin for 30 hours a risk to health or well-being;
  • Must sign a waiver at check-in;  
  • Must be able to lie completely flat and dead still; and
  • Must provide own pillow and sleeping bag or blankets

 

Six Flags Will Provide:

  • Deluxe, slightly used coffins;
  • All meals in bed…aka, coffin;
  • One, six-minute bathroom break every 80 minutes;
  • Random, terrifying visits by the Fright Fest freaks; and
  • NEW Elimination challenges/contests

 

The Winnings

The grand prize winner of the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge will receive:

  • $600
  • Two 2020 Gold Season Passes
  • A Fright Fest Prize package including two Express Haunted House passes
  • Their coffin! That's right - the handcrafted coffin is yours to keep!'

 

For all participants remaining after 30-hours they will receive:

  • Two 2020 Gold Season Passes
  • A Fright Fest Prize package including two Express Haunted House passes
  • Their coffin! That's right - the handcrafted coffin is yours to keep!
