Most people go to amusement parks for thrills, but they would typically find those in high-flying rides like rollercoasters and not, you know…coffins. But spending 30 hours in exactly that is what the Six Flags in St. Louis is inviting guests to attempt this Halloween season, WATE reports.

The “Coffin Challenge” is to take place during the park’s Fright Fest and aims to help people see what it would be like to live as the undead. The people who take the park up on their dare will crawl into “slightly used” coffins at 1pm on October 13th and remain there until 7pm the next day.

Slightly used? Nope nope noppity nope.

If you feel differently (and are, I’m assuming, not at all claustrophobic) and want to take Six Flags up on their dare, you should know that you are allowed to bring pillows, blankets, and sleeping bags and you will be allowed meals, snacks, drinks, and one short bathroom break per hour.

I’m sure you’ve realized by now that successfully completing this challenge will come with a reward from Six Flags – if you last the entire 30 hours, you’ll be the proud owner of 2 Six Flags 2019 season passes, a Fright Fest prize package with two VIP haunted house passes, and two tickets to ride the park’s haunted train ride.

Anyone who attempts the challenge, regardless of finishing it successfully, will be entered in to a random drawing for an unnamed $300 prize.

Oh, and you get to take your “slightly used” coffin home with you, so…free decorations?
