For the first time ever in Hawaii, Blake Wallenda, from “The Flying Wallendas” family, will be performing a skywalk from the Ala Moana Hotel’s 14th floor.
There will be no tether or net for Wallenda to rely on as he travels back and forth on a 200-foot wire.
“I’m thrilled to be performing the first skywalk in Hawaii! Doing walks like this has been a dream of mine since I was a child, and it feels incredible to be sharing my culture and creating such a memorable experience by taking those steps up there in Honolulu,” Wallenda said.
Ala Moana Shopping Center will close a portion of its parking lot deck alongside Macy’s and Liliha Bakery, for the public to have an eye-level view of the walk.
The event is just a preview of what’s to come as the Super American Circus tour hits Honolulu on Feb. 28, 29 and March 1 at the Blaisdell Arena. Wallenda will be one of the headlining acts.
