Fright-loving couples can now spend 30 hours laying in a coffin, and get paid for it. Six Flags offers couples to join the Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge, where they have to lie inside a coffin for 30 hours straight, with provided six-minute bathroom breaks. Contestants are required to leave all their gadgets (such as smartphones and gaming devices), but they can use their gadgets, take a toilet break, eat, or sit up from their coffins during their six-minute breaks. While the prospect of getting paid by lying around in a coffin (with your boo) for 30 hours sounds nice, Oddee details that it isn’t all convenient:
In 2018, the first 30-hour Coffin Challenge was in St. Louis last year and all the contestants won. It wasn’t easy though as they faced cold weather and had to literally sprint to the bathrooms to make it to and fro in the alloted 6-minute time frame.
Also, the entire top of the coffins were open the first time around. “The open top was brutal,” contestant Brian Johnson said on Facebook. “Lights everywhere, people talking, you could barely sleep.”
