Ahead of his high-wire act between Chicago skyscrapers Sunday night, Nik Wallenda already had plans for what he wants to attempt next.
Wallenda said he wants to recreate a 1,200-foot-long high-wire walk made famous by his great-grandfather, Karl Wallenda. The Wallenda family patriarch's stunt at Tallulah Falls Gorge in Georgia included two headstands on the high wire.
The younger Wallenda told reporters Friday that his great-grandfather is his inspiration.
He said he hopes to use vintage footage of Karl Wallenda shot at Tallulah Falls Gorge to create the illusion that he is walking with his great-grandfather.
The 35-year-old daredevil walked a high wire across the Chicago River between skyscrapers Sunday evening. The Discovery Channel televised the event on a 10-second delay.
