BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Aerialist Nik Wallenda reportedly plans to perform his high-wire act at a popular western New York amusement park this summer.

Buffalo-area media outlets report that the daredevil is holding a news conference Wednesday morning at a suburban Williamsville restaurant to announce details of his plans for a 60-minute show at the Darien Lake Theme Park, 25 miles east of Buffalo.

The plans include members of Wallenda's famous "Flying Wallendas" circus family and other aerialists performing twice daily from June 23 through Labor Day, Sept. 1.

Another Wallenda news conference is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in the Rochester suburb of Penfield.
