A printed copy of this petition has been sent the the CEO of Six Flags, Inc. Thank you to everyone for your support!
On September 29, 12 Six Flags locations will begin a new promotion for their October halloween events. Guests that eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach will be allowed to skip ride lines for the day. We demand that Six Flags cancel this barbaric promotion, and we will boycott the company unless they do so.

The undersigned will boycott Six Flags its "live cockroach eating" promotion is stopped. We are disgusted by such cruelty to living things. Madagascar hissing cockroaches are very advanced insects and are pets to many of your former customers.
Not only is this a cruel promotion, but it is irresponsible. Many people have allergies when they come in contact with cockroaches, and eating them can become a fatal mistake.
We are shocked and appalled at such a lowbrow attempt at getting customers to visit your parks. We hope you will stop this promotion immediately and put your efforts into improving your parks' atmosphere and attractions instead of this barbaric promotion.
If this promotion is not called off immediately, the undersigned will never again pay money to Six Flags Great America or to any of its affiliate parks or businesses.
