Nik Wallenda Wows In “Orlando Eye” Walk

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Daredevil performer Nik Wallenda successfully completed a walk across the rim of the 400-foot Orlando Eye observation wheel.

The 36-year-old started his walk shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday atop the city’s newest attraction, which is set to open to the public early next month.

Wallenda rode to the top of the wheel, then navigated up ladders and around sections of the structure before beginning his walk, which lasted a few minutes.

In November, Wallenda made two Chicago skyscraper crossings on high wires. Other previous tightrope walks took him to the brink of Niagara Falls in 2012 and across a Grand Canyon-area garage in 2013.
