As soon as October hits the freaks really do come out at night…and day. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of haunted houses, haunted hayrides or Halloween for that matter, However I do tend to enjoy a good costume. One of the things that Halloween notoriously births every year are different contest/ opportunities for individuals to push the limits, how far you will go in engaging your fear for a cash prize? 2018 marks the 30th year of Screams for Six Flags Fright Fest this year they are challenging six contestants to stay in a coffin which they claim is “slightly used” for 30-hours… to win the grand prize of $300. Now it’s a strong “No” from me, but would you do it?
Via the Six Flags website:
St. Louis is celebrating 30 Years of Screams during Fright Fest 2018 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 13 until 7:00 pm on Sunday October 14.
Coffin dwellers will be allowed to bring a friend along during Fright Fest operating hours, but they must brave the non-operating hours alone. 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 the designated bathroom breaks, will be out of the contest.
- 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
- Their coffin! That's right - the handcrafted coffin is yours to keep!
If more than one participant is remaining after 30 hours, there will be a random drawing for the $300. All participants remaining will receive the Season Passes and Fright Fest package.
If you think you can spend 30 hours in a coffin, fill out the registration form and submit it before midnight, October 3.
