Jumping from the world famous Landmark, adrenaline junkies shoot down at 55 mph over Champ de Mars park before arriving at the Ecole Militaire – trying to take over the landscape
Terrifying video shows riders descending along the zipline. (Pictured) A volunteer is testing the 2600 foot descent
Riders have the chance to enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris – including the tomb of Napoleon I as they descend – a ride that takes just 60 seconds
Heartbreaking images show that volunteers jump out of the tower and shoot the 2600 meter long line.
While the volunteers cling to them during the one-minute dive, they are greeted with an unmistakable view of the Paris skyline – and can even see the top of the tomb of Napoleon I.
The daredevils are equipped with a harness, helmet and glasses for the descent.
Afterwards, a woman, still high in the breathtaking drop, said: & # 39; The descent is … you have the impression that it is going very fast, but it is right and you feel the wind …
& # 39; You really have the time to enjoy and take in the view. & # 39;

For the chance to try out the zipline, thrill seekers must register via Instagram. Then Perrier randomly selects the lucky winners
A zipline was established here earlier in 2017, for only seven days, also to celebrate the French Open.
Branded the Perrier Smash, which is also the name of this year's attraction, it was intended to simulate the trajectory of a tennis shot, reports Lonely Planet.
Perrier Director of Communications, Francoise Bresson, said the 2017 attraction is a & # 39; once in a lifetime experience & # 39; used to be.
However, thrill seekers who want to make an attempt cannot buy tickets.
Instead, they must sign up via Perrier's Instagram page for a free place. The lucky winners will then be selected until 2 June using a random draw.
