ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

High-wire performer Nik Wallenda walked untethered atop the new 400-foot (122 m) high Orlando Eye on Wednesday (April 29) morning, inaugurating a new observation Ferris wheel as it spun at the rate of one mile per hour (1.6 km per hour).

Once at the top, he climbed out of his capsule and down a ladder before walking along a six-inch-wide moving wheel rim.

Wallenda, 36, who has recently traversed cables spanning the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and two Chicago skyscrapers, said at a press conference this week that he had hoped to walk the Eye when he first saw it under construction during a family trip to Orlando.
