CHARLOTTE — A seventh-generation member of the legendary Flying Wallendas crossed the state line of North Carolina and South Carolina. Twice. At 125 feet above Carowinds. Without a safety net or harness.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Nik Wallenda needed 10 minutes Sunday to walk the high rope from the Carolina Skytower to the top of Carowinds Theater and back.

The stunt was the last stop on the “Walk Across America” tour that the 30-year-old Wallenda has been performing at Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. amusement parks across the county.

Wallenda has been performing since he was 4 years old. He holds Guinness world records for the longest distance and greatest height ever traveled by bicycle on a high rope.
