Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge

Take the Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge!

Calling all Coffin Dwellers! Six Flags Over Georgia is celebrating Fright Fest 2019 with the return of the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge from 5:00 PM Friday, October 11 until 11:00 PM Saturday, October 12. 

Six coffin dwellers will be faced with a test of extreme endurance. They will battle for their chance to win $600 in cash and prizes. The contestants must spend 30 hours in a wooden casket and compete in unnerving elimination challenges.

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 or challenges, will be out of the contest. 

The Coffin Dweller remaining after the 30 hours will receive $600, two 2019 Gold Season Passes and A Fright Fest Prize package of two Express Haunted House passes! If more than one participant is remaining after 30 hours, there will be a tie breaker. All remaining participants 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, September 27. Please check out the following Coffin Challenge info before entering.
