Slackline Record Set High Above Las Vegas Strip

A breathtaking stunt took place 63 floors above the Las Vegas Strip Wednesday for the opening of the World Slackline Federation World Cup Finals.

Andy Lewis walked across a record 480 feet on a 360 foot slackline that ran parallel to the Las Vegas Strip, which was rigged from the top of Mandalay Bay's resort towers.

The stunt is the longest urban highline walk ever performed.

Slackline is similar to tightrope walking, but the line is not held taut instead there is slack, allowing the line to move more.  

The World Slackline Federal World Cup Finals is going on inside the Michael Jackson One Theatre Thursday.

At the same time Lewis was making his way across the slackline, other slackliners were performing ticks on slacklines rigged at the same height above the Strip.
