    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Nik Wallenda enjoyed a day-off in Niagara Falls on Monday, taking a jet boat and helicopter ride with family, friends and cast members of his Darien Lake show.

    Along with performing at Darien Lake, he is also performing at the Erie County Fair on Sunday. I’m going on Saturday, so I will be missing it

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Nik Wallenda might not be the only daredevil around here, although he takes the risks and walks those crazy high wires while crowds watch in awe.

    As he returns to the region this summer for a 10-week stint at Darien Lake, local developers and officials are doing their own type of tightrope walk as efforts continue to find the aerialist a permanent place to perform in the city.

    From the Buffalo News:

    We’re happy to see that Nik Wallenda is returning to this area, even if it’s not back to Niagara Falls, where the wire walker gained fame.

    Wallenda has kept a special place in his heart for Niagara Falls since his walk across the Horseshoe Falls in June 2012. Live television allowed 13 million people to watch the feat that tied the Wallenda name to Niagara Falls.

    But his desire to return to the American side of the Falls in a deal that would bring his skills permanently to the Cataract City has failed to get off the ground. Blame it on politics. Blame it on inertia. Whatever the reason and finger-pointing, Darien Lake theme park has emerged the winner.

    From a CNW Group press release (via Yahoo! Finance):

    Conveniently located a short drive from the Niagara Falls border, Darien Lake’s Canadian deals make it the ideal family fun getaway destination this summer. With over 45 rides, a 10-acre waterpark, live shows and midway games, all located within steps of a relaxing lodge, modern cabins, campsite and RV rentals, Darien Lake is the perfect combination of thrill and chill. Canadian cash is at par.
