Wallenda taking his act to Darien Lake

Aerialist Nik Wallenda plans to perform his high-wire act at Darien Lake Theme Park this summer.

The daredevil held a news conference Wednesday morning at a Williamsville Tim Hortons to announce details of his plans for a 60-minute show.

The plans include members of Wallenda's famous "Flying Wallendas" circus family and other aerialists performing twice daily from June 23 through Labor Day, Sept. 1.

The park says the act is called “Nik Wallenda: Beyond the Falls” and features the Wallenda family. 

Tim Horton’s is sponsoring the act, which will be 60 minutes long and held twice daily in the 1,800 seat Galaxy Theatre.

Officials also say there will be additional entertainment, including an interactive tight rope training academy with hands-on instructions, a short film chronicling the history of the Wallendas, pop-up street performances in the park, and a premiere high wire stunt on May 26.

Another Wallenda news conference is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in the Rochester suburb of Penfield.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
