The Nerveless Nocks Thrill Show

The Nerveless Nocks
1 of 5
Multiple Performances a Day

The Nerveless Nocks are descendants of the Swiss Circus Family Nock and are among the most respected aerial stunt artists in the world.

Performing at theme parks, fairs, theaters and circuses, the stunt-filled arena-show captivates audiences of all ages

Sensational Sky-High Swaypoles
Featuring a hand-over-hand climb to the top of a breathtaking aerial exchange from pole to pole and an unbelievable headfirst free-fall back to the ground.

Astro Nocks Daring Spacewheel
While revolving on the aerial pendulum, the Nocks perform leaps, somersaults, handstands and actually walk the wheel blind-folded.

Skykings Skycycle
A thin-stretched steel cable is an aerial highway for the Skykings as they balance a motorcycle with a trapeze attached underneath. This act is packed with death-defying aerial maneuvers!

Nock The Clown
This award-winning comedy entertainer can perform chair-stacking, juggling, uni-cycling, as well as comedy antics on the wire and trampoline.

Nocks Globe of Fear
A giant 17-foot steel globe. One to three motorcycle stunt riders race upside down. A spectacular daredevil show!
