Eat a roach, go to the head of the line

UPI News Service, 09/20/2006 

Don't be alarmed if you find cockroaches on the table at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Ill., because they're the entree for entry into the theme park.

The park hopes to tempt those with discriminating palates to eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach Oct. 7 as part of a promotion for the park's annual FrightFest, the Arlington Heights (Ill.) Daily Herald said Wednesday. The winning diner receives a T-shirt and a pass to take three friends to the front of any ride line during FrightFest.

The park also will have an eating contest featuring cooked Madagascar hissing cockroaches to see whether anyone can break the Guinness Book of World Records entry of 36 downed in 1 minute, the newspaper said.

And for the weight-conscious, cockroaches are extremely low in fat and high in protein, a Six Flags spokesman said.
