Nik Wallenda is planning on making history with his historic Orlando Eye walk, Wallenda the 36 year old daredevil is scheduled to walk along the 400-foot Orlando eye.

Well everyone knows that Nik Wallenda is not afraid of heights and has done many dangerous stunts before as well but now he has decided to walk along the Orlando Eye.

The Orlando eye is a 400 foot observation wheel in Florida, US. Even when there were forecasts for rain which would make the rim of the wheel extremely slippery, Wallenda proceeded with his preparation. 

Wallenda stated to TODAY that there are calls for bad weather and that is very concerning to him as the rain will make the wheel extremely slippery and dangerous. He also revealed that his main concern was that as he makes his way to the rim, not even getting to the rim he could lose his grip and in the end could fall to the ground which will not be a good sight for anyone. 

Wallenda also explained that this walk of his will be very unique for him as he has never walked on any observation wheel before, let alone one that will be moving and he will have to keep up with it.

He also explained that he has never walked without a balancing pole in public and this is a big challenge for him. Apart from this this walk will also require Wallenda to duck under obstacles as he is walking and this will definitely be a huge challenge for him. 

Wallenda was also concerned about some tests that he has conducted on the surface of the Eye. He stated that he climbed up on the roof and he found out that it is extremely slick. So he stated that he wanted the weather to stay better and he is hoping for the best.
