NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Free tickets for a prime viewing spot for daredevil Nik Wallenda's June 15 tightrope walk across Niagara Falls will be up for grabs.
New York's Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation says the Terrapin Point area of Goat Island is the only place within Niagara Falls State Park that'll give spectators a clear view of the walk.
Those wanting to watch from there will have to pre-order tickets through the website www.walkthefalls.com
beginning at 9 a.m. Friday. Visitors will get a voucher to redeem for a wristband the day of the walk.
Up to 4,000 vouchers will be issued, with a maximum of five per email address.
Wallenda's walk starts just after 10 p.m.
The rest of the park will be open but no wristbands are needed.
