A few weeks ago, Six Flags Great Adventure issued a challenge: live in a coffin for 30-hours. The response was scary!

Great Adventure said that more than 4,300 people nationwide put their names in to be an official "Coffin Dweller."

The "Laying to Rest Ceremony" is Sunday, October 28 at 1 p.m. and finishes up Monday, October 29 at 7 p.m. in what Great Adventure is calling the "Raising from the Dead Ceremony."

One of the six participants is Howell native, Leticia Gomez. A Six Flags press release said:

No stranger to coffins, she has worked as a funeral director for 25 years. Will her embalming skills help keep her composed during the challenge?


The six participants will lay in a wooden coffin for 30 hours, receive a six-minute bathroom break each hour, limited cell phone usage, meals in their coffins and unannounced visits from the Fright Fest freaks. Dwellers who complete the 30 hours will receive two 2019 Gold Season Passes and Dining Passes, two Haunted Maze Express Passes, $300 and oddly enough, they get to keep their coffins!

The five other brave souls that will be part of the challenge include a paranormal investigator from Bear, DE, a Navy veteran from Staten Island, an active member of our Navy from CT, and a Dad from PA who says “the three H’s” his life’s passion – Halloween, haunts and horror."

Here's a preview of what to expect from the Coffin Challenge.
