Coffin competition

Six Flags St. Louis, a theme park in Missouri, says it’s staging a ’30-Hour Coffin Challenge’ between 13 and 14 October, in which half a dozen people will be chosen to spend 30 hours in a coffin – with the prize for the person who lasts the full time being $300, two 2019 Gold Season Passes, a ‘Fright Fest’ package of two VIP Haunted House passes, a ticket for two to ride the ‘Freak Train for Freaks Unleashed’ and the coffin. There will be six-minute “bathroom breaks” every hour; contestants will be eliminated from the competition if they otherwise get out of the coffin.
