For some tourists, Nik Wallenda’s wirewalk across Niagara Falls will still be a spectacle worth watching, even if he wears a safety harness. But others say the precautionary device dashes any excitement surrounding the event on June 15.
“I could see some people being disappointed, but it will still be something to see,” Kim Andrews of West Virginia said Tuesday.
“It won’t be as dramatic, but that’s a long way to walk and it’s not something you see often,” her husband Michael added.
U.S. TV network ABC is insisting Wallenda wear the safety equipment. ABC will televise the historic walk. Without ABC’s financial backing of the event, Wallenda says he simply can’t do it.
