Daredevil Nik Wallenda, broke Guinness World Records this morning by walking across the top of the 400 foot Orlando Eye. Hundreds of spectators watched live, while many more watched at home on the TODAY Show.  

Nik has previously walked across The Grand Canyon and Niagra Falls on only a wire, and was determined to break another record this morning atop the Orlando Eye.  He stated that the surface was wet and slippery, but that did not stop him from completing the deadly stunt.

The Orlando Eye and surrounding IDrive 360 attractions will officially open May 4, 2015. Although we certainly do not recommend walking across the top, we can definitely recommend riding in the capsules to see a spectacular view of International Drive and the City of Orlando.
