Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge - Couples Edition

We're Dying to Celebrate with You!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is celebrating Fright Fest 2019 with the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge - Couples Edition. Whether it's with a friend, sibling, partner, etc., three lucky pairs of coffin dwellers will be chosen to spend 30 hours in a coffin, from 8:00am on Friday, September 27 to 2:00pm on Saturday, September 28.

The Basics

A pair of 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.

  • Must sign a waiver at check-in
  • Must be able to lie completely flat and dead still
  • 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 three hours
  • Random, terrifying visits by the Fright Fest freaks
  • NEW Elimination challenges/contests


A pair of lucky winners will recieve: 

  • $600 in Cash
