Watch Wallenda Train for Wire Walk

Renowned tightrope walker Nik Wallenda will be practicing walks everyday between May 12th and May 22nd. Everyone can watch the stunning wire walk training sessions for free of cost in front of the property near Third Street and Old Falls Street from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon and 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Two cranes will be using to hold the 1,200ft long wire across the spot and the wire will be placed not exactly the same 220ft as on the final day but from a reasonable height above the ground.

He is hopeful about the day and says "the only thing I can't control is the weather, but I'm trained for it." He is using wind machines and water to overcome the possible difficulties set by weather on the day of final walk.

Apart from using helicopters for rescue purpose, Nik is planned to use two rescue carts that hang from the wire below from each side of the Niagara Falls.

Practice is the hardest part, but that truly makes the master! Come to Niagara Falls, watch Nik Wallend's wire walking practice. In his own words "It just gets everybody excited again. No matter how you look at it, whether you like it or not it is part of the history of Niagara Falls."
