It is for a season pass, and in some Eastern Countries they are considered a delicacy.

Now, they've said that this kind which will be consumed is safe, so they are most likely ones that have been kept in sterile environments for food (since it says this is a delicacy in asia).
Yeah, this is what I meant when I said they're poisonous. These roaches they want you to consume for a Six Flags pass have GOT to be sterile or else a lawsuit won't be far behind.

Six Flags is going out of business if this is the kind of antics they have to pull.

That is just nasty! Are they also alive during this eating contest??

Why would a big name theme park resort to such circus-side-show-like promotions?

I sure wouldn't want my kids watching that if they are alive. 2-3 inches and alive is just sick.

There were photos of people eating such at AJC.com.

I couldn't find the one I saw earlier. I didn't bother to see the rest of the photos.

Our kitties don't seem to have any issues with them.
