Six Flags St. Louis challenges guests to 30-hour coffin stay

six flags fright fest

To celebrate “30 Years of Screams” at Six Flags St. Louis, the park is inviting guests to spend 30 hours in a coffin to win $300.

The Coffin Challenge will run from 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 13 until 7:00 pm on Sunday October 14.

Six “coffin dwellers” will sleep in 2’ x 7’, slightly used coffins. They will spend all 30 hours in the coffin, apart from an hourly six minute bathroom break.

The participants are allowed to bring a friend along during Fright Fest operating hours. However they will spend the nights alone – apart from Fright Fest Freaks who will be lurking about in the darkness. Leaving the coffin will result in a loss of the competition.

Prizes for survivors

Anyone who completes the 30 hour challenge will receive $300. They will also get two 2019 Gold Season Passes, a Fright Fest Prize package including two VIP Haunted House passes , a ticket for two to ride the Freak Train for Freaks Unleashed. Winners will also keep their coffin!

Participants must be 18 years or older and have a photo ID for verification. They must also complete and sign a waiver and be able to completely lay in a 2’ x 7’ coffin.

Last month, Six Flags Entertainment Corporation and CBS Films announced an exclusive national partnership. It will see the creation of new attraction based on CBS Films and Lionsgate’s latest horror movie release, Hell Fest.

Six Flags and CBS Films are launching new haunted attractions based on Hell Fest at three Six Flags theme parks this Fright Fest. Those parks are Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA, Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ, and also Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL. Haunted mazes will depict real life replicas of the movie’s most unnerving, goriest and most epic scenes.

Fright Fest runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from September 15 through October 31.
