Air Swing

The air swing at the Fêtes des Tuileries is one of my very favourite things to do in Paris. Master Wicker loves Fêtes des Tuileries and we would go most days. I've posted about the Fêtes before, a great fair in Tuileries for two months every summer.


I would ride the Air Swing pretty much every time we went. It's only a few euros for such an amazing experience. There's the exhilaration of the ride itself. 





And the views! Over the Louvre, Rue de Rivoli, Tuileries and all the way to the Eiffel Tower.






It's always over much too quickly.


And I can never wait until the next time.

Great photos, but I am not a lover of those kinds of thrills. Glad you love it.

It's been such a long long time since I've been on a ferris wheel. Great pics Louise.

What an interesting activity right outside the Louvre. Looks like fun for the whole family. Can always step into the Louvre for some wind-down after the thrills.

I used to love riding the air swing at the fair when I was a kid. I recently went on one with my daughter and, um, let's just say I don't think I can handle it anymore! But, for the views of Paris, I might just be able to go for one more ride!

I have this height thing -- one of the reasons I didn't go up in the Eifel Tower. But boy, this could tempt me. And you have my DEEPEST respect and admiration for being whirled around at great speeds up high over Paris!
