You Can Now Zip Line Off the Eiffel Tower, If You Have the Guts
Afraid of heights? Turn away now.

• Perrier has created a zip line off the Eiffel Tower to promote the French Open.
• The attraction is open between June 5 and June 11, and features 100 rides each day.
• Thrill seekers jump from 375 feet high and travel 55 miles an hour across the Champs de Mars.

There’s nothing like a trip up the Eiffel Tower to get a breathtaking view of Paris. But the view is a whole lot different when you’re zooming off the thing at 55 miles per hour. Conde Nast Traveler reports that for a limited time, you can take a zip line off the Eiffel Tower—and for free.

The sponsored stunt is called Le Perrier Smash, and it was set up by the sparkling-water company to promote the French Open. Riders jump off the Eiffel Tower at a height of 375 feet, then fly high at 55 miles per hour, which just so happens to be the speed of a tennis serve. You then fly half a mile, lasting one minute, across the Champs de Mars and land at L’Ecole Militaire.

The attraction is open from June 5 to 11, and also features a virtual version for people who are too spooked to do the real thing. And that may be your best shot, because online signups have already closed via Perrier’s website.

Watch the insane video below, and either feel the FOMO or feel glad you are on solid ground.
