Walking across Niagara Falls
Nik Wallenda has had a lifetime dream of walking across Niagara Falls on a tightrope.
This summer, his dream of 'disappearing into the mist and coming out at the other end', may finally come true!
He convinced the Canada's Niagara Falls Commission to let him do this.
Nik grew up in a family of circus performers so he is well prepared for this adventure.
Nik does not plan to wear a harness. He thinks with will take hime about 40 minutes to complete the 1,800-ft. long walk.
If he makes it, he will be the first person to do this in the last hundred years.
The first person to complete this stunt was a Frenchman by the name of Jean Francous Gravelet.
Nik is setting up the rope so he walks downhill for the first half and then and uphill for the second.
From the looks of the past, I am sure Nik will have no problem completing this task.
He currently holds six Guinness World Records for this type of stuff.
You may be able to watch this stunt on the Discovery Channel soon. (The date has not been decided yet.)
