Rhett Rotten proudly presents America’s original extreme motorcycle show – the Wall of Death. The Wall of Death is a vintage live action thrill show featuring a motor drome, a silo-shaped wooden cylinder 30 feet in diameter. Inside the drome motorcycle daredevils travel along the vertical wall performing trick, fancy, and acrobatic riding. Motor dromes started on the carnivals and fairs– the midways of America– when entertainment was live and in person. Today Rhett Rotten strives to keep this bit of history alive by traveling the United States, performing the show as it would have been 100 years ago. For over two decades, Rhett Rotten has toured the country with his Wall of Death, performing at major motorcycle events, rallies, Open Houses, museums, charity events and races. He “braves the boards” on his 1927 Indian Scout and his 1957 Harley Hummer in this vintage “vertical racetrack”, built circa 1938. It's a show you don't want to miss, no matter how many times you may have seen it before! Nothing compares to seeing the show in person at the top of the 14 foot board wall, where you can smell the rubber burn and feel the wind as the motorcycles race just inches from you!
