The daredevil walks 125 feet above the beach with an estimated 150,000 people watching
UPDATE: See photos from event here.
Nik Wallenda did it in style.
The world famous daredevil yesterday (Aug. 9) pulled off a feat that amazed 150,000 onlookers crowding the beach and Boardwalk in Atlantic City when he walked on a wire 125 ft. above the sand, from Sovereign Ave. and the beach, adjacent to Atlantic Club Casino, and finished 1,500 feet later above the beach at Tropicana Casino & Resort.
Wallenda, who has pulled off several other breathtaking stunts at Tropicana in the past, will now settle down into the rest of his summer gig at the Jersey shore.
He stars in Beyond the Falls: Nik Wallenda and the Wallenda Family Experience, a show featuring multiple feats of daring, which opens this Sunday, Aug. 12 and runs through Sept. 22 at the Tropicana Showroom.

Nik Wallenda admitted he was worried as he inched his way across the thin steel wire that spanned two countries.
On June 25, daredevil Nik Wallenda traversed a two-inch wire across countries on June 25, becoming the first person to ever walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope.
Wallenda told the media that it will be several weeks before a ruling by Guinness World Records Ltd. "on whether his outdoor stunt qualifies for the world record for performing the stunt off the side of a building."
