Come Watch Nik Wallenda train!
Nik Wallenda will be training from May 12th thru May 22nd at the beautiful Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY. It's free to the public so please stop on by anytime between 10:30- noon and 3:30 - 5:00. The mist and changing wind conditions are the biggest challenge for the walk, he said. He'll use the actual wire he's crossing the gorge on and is planning to have wind machines brought in, along with fire trucks to spray water on him. “The only thing I can't control is the weather,” he said. “But I'm trained for it.” Rather than having a helicopter on hand to pluck him off, the plan now is to have two rescue carts hanging from the wire below. They'll stay at each end of the rigging – one in Canada and one in the U.S.
