The Six Flags in St. Louis has an unusual twist to Fright Fest this year: They’re inviting people to spend 30 hours in a coffin . Why doctors say that could be dangerous.

Couples can bring pillows, sleeping bags, and anything else they need to make their tomb feel more inviting, just as long it fits inside the coffin when the lid is closed. After settling into their temporary resting places late Friday afternoon, contestants will have a few more chances to see daylight before the challenge ends. They'll be allowed to leave for designated bathroom breaks and sit up in the coffin to take meal and phone breaks. Each contestant also gets a “Get Out of the Coffin Free Card" they can use to rise from the grave for six minutes at any point in the challenge.

To keep things interesting, and to ensure one couple is left laying when the 30 hours are up, contestants will face mini-challenges throughout their trial. Some possible tasks might include fishing a mysterious item out of a bucket, laying in a coffin covered in worms, or retrieving a prop from a haunted house. Both halves of the couples must complete the challenges together; the only exception being if a contestant wants to use the one “Skip the Challenge Card” they receive at the start of the contest.

Spending 30 hours in a coffin isn't for the faint of heart, but people have endured worse. Several people have survived being buried alive for days—though, granted, they didn't have to share the experience with anyone else.
