Tallinn's Newest Attraction - Rappelling!

A new adrenalin attraction has opened in Tallinn known as "Rappelling" which sees participants descend from the roof of Tallinn's TV Tower from a height of 175 metres.

The TV Tower has the highest open observation deck in Northern Europe and provides a spectacular view of Tallinn as you are lowered from the 22nd floor.

The price of the 30 minute adventure is 35 per person or 30 if you are part of a group of three or more. For an additional 10 visitors can hire a helmet with camera that enables them to record their experiences to share later with family and friends.

How Rappelling works:

Rappelling participants travel up to the 22nd floor of the TV Tower then descend down to the ground using two ropes; one for descending and one for safety. In addition to this, steel ropes are also in place to keep the person safely on course.

Harnesses are put on indoors over the top of your regular clothes and full instructions are given before you step out onto the ledge.

Anyone can do Rappelling, it's easy and does not require any particular level of fitness or prior experience. Participants must weigh under 100 kg and be at least 14 years of age.

Up to four people can particpate at a time.

Rappelling is open every day from 12 - 6:30 pm.
