You can ride a giant flying fox – off the Eiffel Tower? It’s true


It’s not a hoax – the famous Parisian landmark is currently home to an 800m zip line that is sending brave riders flying across the Champs de Mars at speeds of 90km per hour.

It’s the same speed as a high-powered tennis serve – which makes perfect sense since the line was set up by Perrier to celebrate the French Open.

Sadly it’s only open until Sunday – but you can check out a video of the wild ride here.
