One of the world’s most popular tourist attractions unveiled a new daredevil feature.

The Eiffel Tower, originally built in 1889 for the World’s Fair, recently underwent a $38.4 million renovation which included the addition of a glass floor on the first floor, 200 feet above ground.

The mayor of Paris, Mayor Anne Hidalgo, opened the refitted first floor on Monday. 

Visitors can experience walking on air high above the City of Lights or take a dizzying selfie photo with the ground below as a stunning backdrop.

Nearly seven million people visited the 1,060-foot tower site every year—75 percent traveling from overseas, according the Eiffel Tower’s official website.

The renovation also includes solar panels and a new museum that details the history of the monument.
