Nik Wallenda Chicago

Nik Wallenda, “The King of the Highwire,” is in the “Windy City” of Chicago to perform his most challenging tightrope walk yet. For the first of a two-part walk, Nik will cross more than two city blocks uphill at a 15-degree angle – approximately 8 stories – making it the steepest walk he’s ever attempted and the highest skyscraper crossing in the history of the famed Wallenda family. And for the second part of the tightrope crossing, Nik will be blindfolded. SKYSCRAPER LIVE WITH NIK WALLENDA will air live across the United States and in more than 220 countries and territories beginning at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT, Sunday, November 2, on the Discovery Channel.
