LAS VEGAS -- Two Red Bull base jumpers leaped off the top of the Paris Las Vegas' Eiffel Tower on Tuesday to pay tribute to the 125th anniversary of the Paris, France original.

The jumpers soared down from the 541 foot tower and landed safely near the front drive of the hotel next to the replica Arc de Triomphe.

For the history buffs out there, the original Eiffel Tower was constructed March 31, 1889. Our Las Vegas version opened in 1999.

More than 10 million people have visited the Eiffel Tower Experience since it opened, a news release said.
