How much do you love your partner?

Do you love him or her enough to hang out together in a coffin for 30 hours to score a cash prize and some other perks from Six Flags?

Six Flags America is enlisting couples willing to be buried alive together at its park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

The couples who make it to the end of the Fright Fest 30-Hour Couples Coffin Challenge “will be rewarded with $600 in cash, full access to the park’s Halloween celebrations, and a pair of gold season passes for 2020.”

The Fright Fest 30-Hour Couples Coffin Challenge rules also state that no electronic devices are allowed in the coffin.

No smartphones and no watches. Just you, the person you love, and tons of time to kill.

Six Flags will provide the ambiance by filling the immediate area with “fog, dramatic lighting, flash photography, and extreme weather conditions.”

Extreme weather conditions might be the breaking point for most duos.

Luckily, the contest does allow for short breaks –

Participants in the challenge will, of course, be allowed short breaks from the coffin to eat and go to the bathroom, but anybody who leaves the coffin outside of these breaks will be immediately disqualified from the competition.

The competition runs from September 27 to September 28.

Check out the official Fright Fest 30-Hour Couples Coffin Challenge to sign up.
