Red Bull BASE jumpers leap from Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Mar 26, 2014

The Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris Las Vegas paid tribute to the 125th anniversary of the original Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, on Tuesday (March 25) with a stunt that astounded passersby on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Las Vegas attraction kicked off festivities when two Red Bull BASE jumpers lept from the top of the 541-foot tower, landing safely in the Paris Las Vegas front drive next to the replica Arc de Triomphe. View photos of their jump in the gallery above.

A block party immediately followed, featuring carnival-style food, drinks and entertainment including stilt walkers, mimes and caricature and balloon artists.

The Eiffel Tower replica at Paris Las Vegas opened in 1999, and has since welcomed more than 10 million visitors.

The Eiffel Tower Experience is an exact reproduction of one of Europe's most famous landmarks, rendered at half-scale.
