AUSTELL, Ga., Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Several Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park visitors participated in a cockroach eating contest to win 2012 season passes to the park.

Participants were offered live Madagascar hissing cockroaches with a choice of flavors such as Mexican and barbecue, WGCL-TV, Atlanta reported.

Anyone who ate a cockroach within two minutes Saturday evening won a 2012 season pass to the park, CBS Atlanta reported.

The event was part of the park's Halloween-inspired Fright Fest that runs through October.
