World Record Slack Line Crossing Above Las Vegas

Andy Lewis sets a new world record - walking a slack line suspended 480ft above the Las Vegas strip. Crossing the line strung between towers at the Mandalay Bay casino, Andy set a world record for the longest distance walked on a slack line in an urban environment when he made the 360ft crossing. Ignoring the light wind and planes taking off from nearby McCarren International Airport, Andy reached the other side on his third attempt and stepped into the record books. Andy hopes his feat of skill will draw attention to the sport - and inspire someone else to take on his record.
