    A zip line sends thrill seekers from the second floor of the Eiffel Tower flying; they start off 115 meters off the ground. Riders can reach speeds of about 90 km per hour - about the same speed that a tennis ball can travel after being served.

    The free ride was set up on the Eiffel Tower to celebrate the start of the Roland Garros French Open tennis tournament.
