Rhett Rotten Wall of Death

Rhett Rotten 

For over a century, awestruck spectators have watched in amazement as brave daredevils attempt to ride “The Wall of Death”. This stunt is not for the weak, nor the unskilled.

Rhett Rotten is one of very few modern stuntmen who perform this classic carnival sideshow attraction. Not only is he helping to preserve this historical act with his show, he continues to use a wall that was constructed in 1938. You can truly feel the decades of history as you stand atop the platform, peering down the wooden planks. 

During the show, Rhett Rotten rides a motorcycle up and around the vertical walls, performing tricks as he goes. Hold out a cash tip and he will even take it from your hand (or mouth… we’ve seen it all.) 

Not only will he be performing his “Wall of Death” show multiple times throughout the Hot Harley Nights weekend, he will also be demonstrating his “Roller Ride” stunt! Atop a highrise rolling platform, Rhett Rotten will ride a motorcycle and perform awe inspiring stunts, including a standing seat ride!
