Daredevils looking to get a mesmerizing view over Paris could have the lucky chance to take a zip line off of the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.

Perrier is back with its popular attraction, Smash Perrier, inviting people to whizz from the monumental tower to the 18thcentury École Militaire, this June.

The attraction is opening to align with both the French Open, which takes place through June 9, and the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower this year, inviting lucky winners to take a ride at speeds of 90 km (about 56 miles per hour).

The zip line, which mimics the speed a tennis ball can have after a powerful serve, gives riders a view of the city at a height of over 377 feet.

Take a look at the video to see what the thrilling ride is like:

Those interested in getting the one-of-a-kind aerial views of the City of Light are invited to apply for the free spots through random drawings on Perrier’s Instagram.

Drawings are open from May 29 through June 2, with participants asked to post a story using the Smash Perrier stickers, tagging their location, and mentioning @perrierfr for a chance to win. Be sure to be on the lookout though, as the company will be notifying winners through direct message on the platform to secure the winning spots.

For those who visit Paris, the Eiffel Tower also hosts a restaurant on the first floor where diners can enjoy multi-course meals while taking in panoramic views of Palais de Chaillot and the tower’s architecture from its interior.
