Rocketman Human Cannonball
The Rocketman Valencia makes his living as a Human Cannonball being shot from a cannon; free flying through the air at speeds of 55mph, heights of over 65 ft, and distances of 165ft. He lands in a narrow net, set 20ft off the ground and rocks the crowds every time when he hits his target at the center and takes off his helmet in a heartfelt victory salute. The Rocketman defeats gravity once again. The Rocketman Valencia has twenty three years of Human Cannonball experience.
The Rocketman has performed as a Human Cannonball in the world’s biggest events.
Not only was he the 2012 London Olympics’ jaw dropping finishing bang to their closing ceremonies, televised to (billions) of people around the globe, he was also the secret weapon in Rio De Janeiro’s 2014 Carnival competition (witnessed by an audience of millions) and becoming the first person ever to shoot 6 times in 40 minutes atop a giant moving float. Chachi Valencia soars over the big rides at fairs and amusement parks in the USA, making newspaper headlines and bringing instant PR attention to every venue he’s in. He was famously featured last summer in a BBC special news report along with his wife, Robin Valencia, the only female human cannonball in Europe.
