Not many people in the world can walk or ride a bicycle on a thin piece of wire thousands of feet above the ground. Not many people can call themselves “king of the high wire,” either. Come out to Coney Island to see a man who can claim both.

Nik Wallenda holds the Guinness world-record for the longest distance and greatest height ever traveled by bicycle on a high wire, and he and his famous family bring his thrilling act to Cincinnati. Come and see as Wallenda walks 200 ft. five stories above Sunlite Pool on a 5/8-inch rope without any safety devices. The Wallendas will also sway back and forth on slender, swaying poles and then exchange them in mid air. Prepare to be amazed.

Performances are at various times June 26-July 5, excluding July 4.
