Adrenaline ride on Belgium landmark


Adrenaline junkies have been seeking their thrills on Brussels' tallest structure, the 102-metre Atomium.

The Belgian landmark has been rigged with an "aerial runway" creating an 25 euro attraction that the organisers have dubbed the "Deathride".

The Atomium was built in 1958 for an international exhibition.

The temporary attraction is open until the end of August.
