Nik Wallenda’s High Flying Encore to Niagara Falls Happens Thursday in Atlantic City[VIDEO]

YouTube/ABC News

Nik Wallenda‘s follow-up to this summer’s historic crossing of Niagara Falls happens in Atlantic City this Thursday afternoon, when Wallenda attempts to walk a tightrope high above the beach… from the Atlantic Club Casino to the Tropicana Casino.  Wallenda plans to start the 1,500 foot walk at Sovereign Avenue and the Beach and hopes to complete it 27 minutes later, using only a 24 foot balance beam.  No harness or other safety mechanisms will be used.

This Atlantic City stunt comes a little over a month after Nik Wallenda lived out his childhood dream of crossing directly over Niagara Falls by tightrope.  His walk above a nearly 200-foot drop was heavily promoted and nationally broadcast on ABC-TV.  Wallenda said he was disappointed he was made to wear a safety tether by the TV network, since his family has performed over the years without a such safety precautions.

Describing himself as “The King of the Wire”, Wallenda is known for his high-flying performances, including the one he performed last summer 24 floor’s up at The Tropicana on the so-called “Wheel of Death” .

Wallenda is a seventh-generation member of the famous “Flying Wallendas” family, and he has been performing in circus and daredevil events since childhood.

I will talk to Nik Wallenda about his latest Atlantic City stunt this Thursday on the Lite Rock Morning Show.
