The Standard Journal - - NATIONAL -

VALDOSTA — A Ge­or­gia theme park is of­fer­ing guests a free ticket if they eat a cricket.

The give­away may bug some peo­ple. But Wild Ad­ven­tures Theme Park in Valdosta was giv­ing away T-shirts and free ad­mis­sion Satur­day to the first 100 guests to gob­ble up a roasted cricket. The chal­lenge was meant to pro­mote the park’s up­com­ing at­trac­tion called MEGABUGS! The Valdosta Daily Times re­ports the in­ter­ac­tive in­sect at­trac­tion will open in March. Ex­hibits will in­clude giant repli­cas of in­sects in­clud­ing a 15-foot drag­on­fly, a 26-foot hiss­ing cock­roach and a 50-foot mil­li­pede.

Wild Ad­ven­tures of­fi­cials said in a news re­lease the ex­hibits will showcase the unique sounds and move­ments that in­sects make.
