Nik Wallenda – Cedar Point Skyride High Wire Cable Crossing

Last week, Canadian officials finally gave Nik Wallenda — a daredevil performer — the green light to tightrope walk across Niagara Falls. This will be the first time a stunt like this has been attempted since 1859.

My first reaction was how and where does one practice for such an endeavour?

Lo and behold, the answer involves cable cars. Here’s a video of Nik polishing his technique on the Cedar Point Sky Ride.
