1. Nik Wallenda plans stunt ahead of Orlando Eye opening

Stunt walker Nik Wallenda, who gained fame performing tightrope-based stunts that have included walking across the Grand Canyon and walking between the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, will be performing a new stunt on April 29th at the new I-Drive 360 complex. However, this time instead of walking across a tightrope, Nik is planning to walk along the top of the 400-foot tall wheel untethered as it is rotating. 

As is the norm for these types of events, the stunt will be shown live on TV. If you want to check it out, NBC will be broadcasting the event live during its TODAY morning broadcast.

NBC series American Ninja Warrior will be filming at Universal Orlando Resort on May 10th and 11th.

Guests at the theme park will be able to see the course during regular operating hours, but the actual filming will take place at 12:30AM.
