Man to walk 262-foot-high wire at Kings Island
Nik Wallenda, seventh-generation member of the world-famous Wallenda family, will walk a 262-foot-high wire from the front gate of Kings Island to the Eiffel Tower. Wallenda will walk more than 800 feet without any harness or safety net.
"I'm very excited about my walk at Kings Island," Wallenda said. "This is going to be the highest walk I've ever done. I'll be taller than the new Diamondback roller coaster!"
The event is scheduled to take place August 15 at 7:00 p.m. and is free with park admission. Look below to watch a video of Nik Wallenda's world-record setting high wire walk.
