Wallenda performs world record helicopter stunt at the Taj

15 June 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Wallendas are back, and so is Taj! Come one, come all to witness the longest aerial stunt performed by the one and only, Erendira Wallenda, as she dangles from a helicopter at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and above the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at 3 p.m.

Wallenda is known worldwide for the international show, Zirkus, a thrilling variety show starring the Wallenda family and a troupe of circus performers. In her latest stunt, Wallenda will perform the longest aerial stunt, a world record.

Departing from the Steel Pier helipad and flying above the Atlantic Ocean, to Longport and back (over 10 miles), Wallenda will dangle and perform helicopter stunts from 100 feet in the air flying by nothing but her toes, with the finale performance in front of the Taj. Audiences can watch the performance live on the beach and via Facebook live (Taj Mahal AC).

"Like Nik, I also have a passion to pushing the limits," said Wallenda "As a mother of 3, my desire is to paint a picture that will inspire other moms and women that anything is possible."

Nik Wallenda had performed a high-wire walk in 2012 at Tropicana Atlantic City where he was more than 100 feet high and 1300 feet over the Atlantic City beach.

Mayor Don Guardian, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tropicana Entertainment Tony Rodio, Nik and Erendira Wallenda and President and Principal Owner of Steel Pier Anthony Catanoso will kick off the event at 2:30 p.m. Post celebration will be held at the Taj Mahal Ocean Bar located off the Boardwalk for VIP guests and ticket winners.

"This is an exciting way to celebrate Taj and summer," said Tony Rodio, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tropicana Entertainment "We are ecstatic to have the Wallenda family back in Atlantic City to thrill audiences near and far."

Wallenda's family spectacle, Zirkus, will enthrall audiences July 9 through September 2, 2016 in the Taj Mahal's Xanadu Theater. Tickets are $40 reserved seating, $30 for adults and $15 for children age 16 and under, plus tax and fees. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at 1-800-736-1420 or online at the Ticketmaster website.
