The ghouls of the night haunt the resting dead.

Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge

Six Flags America is celebrating Fright Fest 2018 with a 30-Hour Coffin Challenge. Six coffin dwellers will be laid to rest aahhh chosen to spend 30 hours in a coffin, from 5 pm on Friday, October 12 until 11 pm on Saturday, October 13.

The Basics

Coffin dwellers will be allowed to bring a friend along during Fright Fest operating hours only, but they must brave the non-operating hours alone. Well, not exactly alone, some of our Fright Fest ghouls will be lurking about in the darkness. And, to make it even tougher, NO TECHNOLOGY ALLOWED – no smart phones or watches, earbuds or headphones.  You will only be allowed to use your devices during designated break times. Anyone who gets out of their coffin for any reason, with the exception of the designated bathroom and meal breaks, will be automatically disqualified and not eligible to win the contest. 

The Winnings

  • $300
  • Four 2019 Gold Season Passes 
  • A Fright Fest Prize package  
  • Their coffin! That's right - the handcrafted coffin is yours to keep!


Each participant remaining after 30 hours will receive $300. All participants remaining will receive Four 2019 Season Passes and Fright Fest package. Participants must be 18 years of age or older, and in good health. Participants will potentially be exposed to fog, dramatic lighting, flash photography and extreme weather conditions. Safety is our number one priority. We maintain the right to alter any rules and conditions at any time. 

If you think you can spend 30 hours in a coffin, fill out the registration form and submit it before midnight, October 7. The six Coffin Dwellers will be randomly chosen and notified on Monday, October 8.
