Daredevil Walks Across A Tightrope Between Skyscrapers In Chicago!
If you have a fear of heights, now might be a good time to navigate away from this page.
This is the video of Nik Wallenda’s insane, heart-stopping tightrope walks between three downtown Chicago skyscrapers.
On Sunday night, the adrenaline junkie walked between the buildings in two separate trips.
The first was a nearly seven-minute jaunt at a 19-degree incline between the 588-foot-tall Marina Tower West and the 671-foot-tall Leo Burnett building, which led the fearless father-of-three across the Chicago River and two city blocks.
The second section was between two Marina City towers and took him less than a minute to complete. Oh, and he was blindfolded for this leg – as if walking on a tightrope between skyscrapers isn’t enough of a challenge.
The Discovery Channel broadcast Wallenda’s stunt worldwide with a 10-second delay in case the daredevil didn’t make it across. He wasn’t harnessed or supported by a net beneath him, so if he fell, that would have been it.
Luckily, Wallenda claimed success again. Last year, he became the first person to tightrope across the Grand Canyon.
