Daredevil to try tightrope walk over Atlantic City
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — For his latest feat,
professional daredevil Nik Wallenda is going to try to do an unharnessed
tightrope walk high above the beach in Atlantic City.
Atlantic City tourism officials are hoping 50,000 or more people show up to
watch Thursday as Wallenda attempts to traverse a line connecting the Atlantic
Club Casino Hotel to the Tropicana Casino & Resort.
His tight rope will be 100 feet in the air and 1,300 feet long.
In June, Wallenda wowed the masses when he did a similar stunt 200 feet above
He told WCBS radio that the variable winds will be the biggest challenge for
his Atlantic City effort, which he called "a very unique walk."
