Death-defying acts are nothing new to Nik Wallenda. So it comes to no surprise that the 10-time Guinness World record holder is at it again. This time, his taking his talents to the National Harbor in Maryland.
The king of the high wire will only use the balance bar as he walks from one building to another, covering a distance of 230 feet, all while dangling 75 feet in the air.
These kinds of acts are nothing new to Wallenda or his family.
Nik Wallenda is the seventh generation of the Great Wallendas, whose great grandfather, the legendary Karl Wallenda, brought the family to America for the greatest show on Earth. Nik Wallenda has been learning to walk the high wire since the age of 2.
The stunt is supposed to be a warm up to his latest show, the Big Apple Circus. Those performances run through March.
