NBC10 Philadelphia - Jesse Gary
High rope walker Nick Wallenda put on quite the show in Atlantic City on Thursday. Walking 10-stories above the sand shore goers lined up to watch. NBC10's Jesse Gary reports.
People lined the beach and the boardwalk with eyes to the sky in Atlantic City on Thursday to watch Nik Wallenda's tight-rope feat.
Wallenda walked the wire from the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel to the Tropicana Casino and Resort, suspended more than 100 feet in the air. And he did it without a safety harness.
He walked 1300 feet from casino to casino.
Nik Wallenda currently holds seven Guinness World Records.
He is the seventh generation of The Flying Wallendas, a family of acrobatic aerialists that dates back to 1780 Austria-Hungary. Nik told NJ.com that his mother walked the wire while carrying him and that he himself started walking the wire when he was two.
America was astonished as they watched Wallenda conquer his lifetime dream of walking the high wire directly over the precipice at Niagara Falls on June 15, 2012.
