VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Two teen brothers, one who holds a world record, have brought their death defying motorcycle stunt show to Valdosta.

17 year-old Cody and 14 year-old Kyle Ives have taken their globe of death to Wild Adventures.

In their show, Cody will perform stunts inside the 12 foot steel globe while his brother and another rider, Jorel Bermudez, attempt freestyle motorcycle jumps over it.

Cody start began performing the stunts at the age of seven. By nine he'd become the holder of the world record for the youngest person to ride in the steel sphere.

He says it was trait he picked up from dad. 

"My dad did it for 20 years and he kind of missed it and set the globe up in the side yard. I came home one day, saw it set up and said why not?  So I got in and started riding and I used to do it before my parents came home from work and did that for about a month. But then they came home and caught me and I was busted. My mom was yelling at me to get out. My dad kept yelling for me to keep going and have fun," Cody says.

The Globe of Terror is part of Wild Adventure's Halloween phobia event.

The Ives will be performing the show for the next five weeks.
