Shoppers can zoom down a 40-metre zip-line at Westfield as part of a pop-up forest experience.

The White City shopping centre is daring thrill-seekers to test their nerve on the zip-line, which is suspended 5.3 metres above the centre's floor.

The attraction launched on Tuesday August 15 and is part of Westfield's Future Forest.

The exhilarating 40-metre descent is from the top of a leafy treehouse.

Westfield's chief marketing officer, Myf Ryan, said: “The Adventure Zip-Line will offer a thrilling addition to the immersive Future Forest experience, which really delivers on providing a unique experience that has never been done before."

The Adventure Zip-Line is complemented by Bompas & Parr’s immersive Fruit Cloud – a walk-in breathable aromatic cloud with regularly changing flavours – as well as a mini exhibition showcasing plants that create electricity, the magic of spider silk, and a historic tree circus alongside artefacts, artworks and anecdotes about forests and nature.

Everything is designed to inspired guests to consider the environment and the outdoors, as well as relaxation, health and wellbeing.

Londoners can have a go at the zip-wire located within The Atrium at Westfield London between Tuesday August 15 to Monday August 28.

The attraction runs between 12pm to 8pm on Monday to Saturday, and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays.
