    Wanna cut in line? Eat a live cockroach

    GURNEE, Illinois (AP) -- Why wait in line when you can just eat a cockroach?

    That's the question Six Flags Great America is asking thrill seekers during a Halloween-themed FrightFest. The amusement park is daring customers to eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach in exchange for unlimited line-jumping privileges.

    The promotion, which has Lake County Health Department officials shaking their heads, starts October 7.

    Anyone who chows down the entire 2- to 3-inch horned cockroach gets a pass for four people to cut to the front of ride lines through October 29.

    Park officials insist it's safe to eat the crunchy critters, but health officials are cautioning participants.

    Consuming live roaches might increase risks of gastrointestinal illness and allergies, according to Bill Mays, Lake County Health Department's community health director.

    Cockroach eaters will have to sign waivers and still pay admission fees, said Six Flags spokesman James Taylor.
