Zip-Line from the Eiffel Tower – level 2
People in Paris enjoyed zip-lining off the Eiffel Tower. There was another zip-line before, but it was only from the first floor.
The new zip-line was from the second floor, so it was more fun. People could reach speeds of almost 100 kilometres per hour. The landing platform was 800 metres from the tower.
Difficult words: platform (an area for landing).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
