PARIS, Farnce (Reuters / CBS Newspath) -- Stay away if you're scared of heights, but if not, jumping on trampolines on Paris' highest skyscraper is possible for a short period.

Parisians and tourists enjoyed a few hours of bouncing around on Thursday (December 28) as four trampolines were set up at the Montparnasse Tower, offering stunning views of the French capital while jumping atop the 210-metre (690 feet) high building.

The rooftop of Paris's famous tower has undergone a transformation from a panoramic viewpoint into a 800-square-metre playground (8,612-square-feet) opened early in December in time for Christmas and France's school holidays.

Open to big and small, access to the trampolines is included in the entry price to the Montparnasse Tower Panoramic Observation Deck with tickets costing between 9.50-15 euros (US11-18 dollars).

Other activities are planned for 2018, including the return of an artificial ice rink in February.
