30-hour coffin challenge

Six people have survived a 30-hour coffin challenge in a bid to win cash and season passes for a theme park.

The competition, at Six Flags Great America, dared contenders to lie in the caskets and allowed one bathroom break per hour, six 15 minute meal breaks, and 13 minutes with their phone each hour.

Participants included a 70-year-old grandmother, a funeral director and embalmer, a student studying to be a funeral director, a paranormal investigator and two coffin dwellers – one who lives and works in a cemetery, and a second who claims to be part zombie and part vampire.

The prizes included $300, two 2019 Gold season passes, two express haunted house wristbands, a chance to be in the Uprising Parade and their coffin.
