Zip line off the Eiffel tower


Only for all daredevils amongst us: zip lining of the Eiffel tower whilst reaching a speed of 90 kilometers per hour. The 800 metres long zip line trip takes less than a minute, you’re done before you know. The idea of this pop-up zip line comes from Perrier that sponsors Roland Garros, one of the four Grand Slams in tennis.

Zipline off the Eiffel tower

People who often play or watch tennis knows exactly how hard a service or a smash can be. Perrier, one of the sponsors of Roland Garros wanted to let people experience the speed of a service or smash in real life. That’s why they came up with the idea to install a pop-up zip line court at the Eiffel tower. The zip line court is already installed and can be visited till Sunday, the day when the Roland Garros tournament ends.

The trip that starts at a 115 metres height will reach speeds up to 90 kilometres per hour. You will start at the Eiffel tower and finish at a platform that’s installed 800 metres away. During the trip you will ‘fly’ over the ‘Champs de Mars’ parc. Unfortunately, not everybody is allowed to go zip lining off the Eiffel tower. Tickets were allotted amongst several people.

Tennis tournament Rosmalen

Soon, tennis tournament Ricoh Open in Rosmalen is about to start, in order to prepare for Wimbledon. Isn’t there another sponsor that wants to present this zip line event to the Netherlands, for example off the Province house in Noord-Brabant?

Other unnusual zipline concepts

More often we spot special locations where you can zipline. In the Netherlands for instance you can zipline off the Euromast, an observation tower in Rotterdam. Furthermore, you can zipline off the Scheveningen Pier.
