The Eiffel Tower zipline returns this year for Roland Garros, running from May 29th to June 2nd 2019 with random draws selecting who gets to try it out.
7700 steps up to the 2nd fl oor, 115 metres above the ground, a 100-metre drop, 800 metres long, at a speed of 90 km/hour, a 1-minute flight…
Departing from the second floor of the tower and reaching speeds of up to 90kph! – this isn’t for the faint-hearted.
The random draws take place from May 20 to 26 with a second draw held every day from May 29 to June 2.
The organizer Perrier hasn’t yet published a registration form to enter a draw but they suggest following their Instagram account to wait for instructions. Last year’s registration form was placed here – so be sure to keep an eye out there too.
