Consider yourself a daredevil? Well, it turns out, you don’t have to be King Kong (or Tom Cruise) to hang off the side of a famously tall historical landmark.

Until June 11 — The Effiel Tower has installed a zip line on its second level that’s launching lucky tourists and thrill-seekers 2,626 feet across the Champ de Mars. At 377 feet in the air and 55 mph, the views of the Parisian skyline are expected to be unparalleled.

Surprisingly, this is the second time a zip line has opened on The Effiel Tower. In 2017, the tower welcomed guests to zoom-off the side of the second story for an entire week to celebrate the French Open. This year, in collaboration with Perrier, the zip line has reopened for the French Open once again as well as the tower’s 130th birthday.

So, if you want to catch a ride on the Effiel Tower zip line — you’re going to have to jump through a few hoops. Tickets are only accessible if you win them through Perrier’s Instagram page, where you’ll need to submit your name to an online lottery. You have until June 2 to enter, so hurry! And good luck.
