Nik Wallenda

On June 15, 2012, high wire artist, Nik Wallendajoined the ranks of legendary daredevils when he became the first person ever to walk across the roaring Niagara Falls. The broadcast was aired on ABC to over thirteen million Americans. Nik is the 7th generation of the Great Wallendas. Every walk Nik does is in honor of his great-grandfather, Karl Wallenda, who died on the wire in 1978. Nik has been performing on a high wire since before he was born when his mother (who still performs with him today) walked while she was six months pregnant with Nik. The Niagara Falls walk marks Nik’s 7th World Record. By his side on the wire is his wife, Erendira, circus royalty. Learn more at http://www.nikwallenda.com.
