TAMPA, Fla. — Nik Wallenda & mom high wire walk over Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The Flying Wallendas soared over part of Tampa Bay today.

Sarasota native Nik and his 66-year-old mother helped celebrate the opening of the newly expanded Seminole Hard Rock Casino.

They walked a high wire without a safety net!

Aside from the casino expansion, the stunt also marked the mom's final stunt of her career!

They walked 160 feet in the air between the two hotel towers.
