Six Flags will pay couples $600 to lie in a coffin together for 30 hours straight

What's the most amount of time you've ever spent with a significant other, without coming up for air?

You know, in those heady first days of a relationship where you simply can't get enough of each other, and you roll from the bed to make breakfast, then roll back into bed for the rest of the day.

Well, Six Flags is bringing a whole new meaning to 'coming up for air' in your relationship with their brand new test of endurance, and it's not for the faint hearted.

For this year's Fright Fest, Six Flags is challenging couples over the age of 18 to spend a colossal 30 hours together side-by-side in a 65-by-72inch coffin.

Now, you might be wondering - and with good reason - why anyone would take on this ghastly sounding challenge, but there is a prize on offer, and it's a doozy.

Those couples that make it through the 30-hour marathon win $600 to split between them, two gold season passes for 2020 and a Fright Fest prize package, Insider reports.

If you're interested, the challenge is set to begin on Friday September 27 at 4pm, and will conclude at 10pm the following evening. Thankfully, the coffins won't actually be buried underground, though after 30 hours of lying side-by-side in a coffin I think it's fair to say that you'll be feeling pretty claustrophobic.

Insider reports that couples selected for the feat of endurance will have to leave all technology out of their "temporary resting place", and that smoking is not allowed.

The official rules state that eating and drinking will take place during designated breaks, and that participants are allowed to bring pillows, sleeping bags and blankets, so long as they comfortably fit in the coffin with the lid closed. There will be six-minute restroom breaks every three hours.

This isn't the first time Six Flags has run such a competition. Last year, the amusement park paid people $600 to lie in a coffin for 30 hours, the twist this time round being that participants must now do it in a couple.
