Can you stay in a coffin for 30 hours straight? The inaugural 30-hour coffin challenge was a hit last year and is coming back October 13 and 14. Six guests will be chosen from among thousands of applicants to survive 30 hours in a coffin during Fright Fest for prizes and bragging rights. The Munsters star Butch Patrick will join this year’s festivities as a guest emcee! Individuals and pairs are welcome to apply. Interested coffin dwellers can complete the application on beginning September 9.
