Antioch's design.

Antioch is one of the prop characters in the Rock-afire Explosion, having made his debut as an animatronic at Jacksonville, FL (9820 Atlantic Blvd).


Origins & Showbiz Pizza Place

Antioch was originally referred to as the Birthday Spider, and held a cake in-between his hands. Over time, he would become Fatz Geronimo's pet spider. He would pop down occasionally and speak to Fatz in a garbled language that only they could understand. During Concept Unification, Antioch would be destroyed. Antioch was named after the first Showbiz Pizza Place location in Kansas City, MO (2726 NE Vivion Rd).

Present Day

Original parts for Antioch would start to be reproduced by Creative Engineering's new employees in 2023.
