Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge


Six Flags Over Texas is looking for some seriously brave souls to take on the Fright Fest 30-Hour Coffin Challenge. Six coffin dwellers will be chosen to spend up to 30 hours in a coffin, from 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 until 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 14.

The Challenge:

Coffin Dwellers will be allowed to bring a friend along during Fright Fest operating hours, but they will have to brave the non-operating hours alone. Well, not exactly alone. You see, some of our Fright Fest friends will be lurking about in the darkness, ready to scare you when you least expect it. Anyone who abandons their coffin for any reason, with the exception of the designated bathroom breaks, will be out of the contest. 

What Could I Win?

  • $300 cash

  • Two 2019 Gold Combo Season Passes 

  • A Fright Fest Prize package including two VIP Haunted House passes  

  • Their coffin! That's right - the handcrafted coffin you choose is yours to keep!


If more than one participant remains at the end of the 30 hour challenge, there will be a random drawing for the $300 prize. Any participant remaining at the end of the 30 hours will receive the Season Passes and Fright Fest package. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and in good health. Participants may be exposed to: fog, dramatic lighting, and flash photography. We reserve 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 below and submit it before midnight, October 3.  The six Coffin Dwellers will be chosen by Friday, October 5 and must accept by noon on Monday, October 8. If all coffins are not filled, an alternate will be notified by the end of the day on Monday, October 8.
