Nik Wallenda is set to perform the craziest stunt of his life so far. The famous aerialist and “The King of the High wire” will walk on the new 400 foot giant Ferris wheel Orlando Eye while it is moving speedily. This new Ferris wheel located in Florida is the largest observation wheel of East Coast and it spins at a rate of 1 mile per hour. This observation wheel has 30 capsules with each on can hold up to 15 passengers.

For the first time, 36 years old Nik Wallenda will not use a balancing pole which has been a permanent part of all of his stunts he has done before and he will not use any safety nets as well. The walk will be broadcast live on NBC and is scheduled to start anywhere between 8 a.m. to 8.15 a.m. on Monday, according to Reuters.

According to Nik, the wheel takes about 20 minutes to make full revolution but he is not sure how long he will be able to walk on it. However, he is practicing how to maintain a perfect pace and balance while walking without a pole and hopes to enter his name again in Guinness world record.
