What's next? Eat some horsemeat and get into the track for free?It's time for Fright Fest at the Great Escape, and this year's event will offer a shot at some must-have video:
New for 2006, Fright Fest guests will have an opportunity to move straight to the front of the line by consuming a creepy, crawling Madagascar Hissing cockroach! This challenge will take place for one hour, each day, during The Great Escape's Fright Fest opening weekend (Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1).
If you can't wait until the weekend, during today's media event at the park, there will be a demonstration of "Proper techniques for handling and eating insects/cockroaches (One live demonstration will be provided)." Or you could just head down to a certain very old and famous downtown eatery on lower State Street.
