Nik Wallenda To Practice Falls Wire Walk At Seneca Niagara Casino [VIDEO]
Stuntman Nik Wallenda has made it official, telling the rest of the world what Western New Yorkers have known for weeks. Wallenda announced on national TV that he will attempt to wire walk across Niagara Falls on June 15th. What we didn't know though, is that he'll begin practicing at the Seneca Niagara Casino next weekend.
Wallenda was in Niagara Falls yesterday for the big announcement on ABC's "Good Morning America." Now there's also word that beginning May 10th, the parking lot at the Seneca Niagara Casino will be cleared out and two cranes along with a wire will be put in place to provide Wallenda a place to practice for his upcoming stunt.
On May 12th through the 22nd, Wallenda will practice on the same wire he'll use to cross the span between the U.S. and Canada at the Seneca Niagara Casino parking lot. You can watch Walenda practice any day from May 12th to the 22nd between 10:30 am and noon and then again from 3:30pm till 5pm.
