Flying above lions, Zoo de Thoiry’s incredible zip-lining

Flying above lions, this is the brand-new offer of Zoo de Thoiry with its 500-m long zip-lining. Inaugurated on Saturday July 29, 2017, this zip-lining is the only one of its kind in France… We did it, discover this crazy experience!

Have you heard of Zoo de Thoiry? Located 45 minutes from Paris by car or shuttle, Zoo de Thoiry is a zoo you can visit while remaining in your own car and by foot as well. It features new very pleasant activities that will delight thrills lovers.

Among these activities: a 90-minute-long visit taking you behind the scenes aboard a safari shuttle and as close as possible to lions, bears and antelopes, a maze where you’ll lose all sense of time, DinoZoore and a flying session above lions thanks to a zip-lining never seen before in France. A minute in the air with your life connected to a zip-lining. We can fly at the same time as someone else which is perfect for couples or families and we enjoy a 500-m long zip-lining at 20-m high.

Zoo de Thoiry promised us a surprise: the zip-lining is 500-m long and is divided into two parts. Warning, the zip-lining is rather hard and thrills are unique. For the first part, we jump from 20 meters (easily accessible thanks to a gentle climbing pathway) and we fly above 3 lions! Crazy!

After zip-lining 250 meters, we stop on a big platform and a member of the staff secures us for the second part above an artificial lake… We loved the experience that you can watch below.

Caution: even though we could film lions, using your mobile phone is forbidden for safety reasons (go get your phones in the lion pit, you smarty-pants!). Open to all from 8 years old, this experience is absolutely incredible, we advise you to try it!
