by Admin on September 23, 2013

1. The Inclinator – Luxor Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, USA

The elevator travels at a 39 degree angle:

2. The Eiffel Tower – Paris, France

The elevators travel up the legs of the tower:

3. The Louvre – Paris, France:

4. Bailong Elevator – Zhangjiajie, China

At 326 meters (just over 1,000 feet) the elevator has three Guinness world records:

5. Taipei 101 – Taiwan

The world’s fastest elevator (travels at 3,300 feet per minute):

6. Lacerda – Brazil

72 meters tall, used by more than 30,000 people a day:

7. Hammetschwand – Switzerland

Europe’s highest external elevator at 153 meters:

8. The Gateway Arch – St, Louis, Missouri

By periodically rotating every 5 degrees the elevator maintains the correct orientation:

9. Santa Justa – Lisbon, Portugal

Originally steam powered, the elevator connects downtown streets with uphill Carmo Square:

10. And finally, the scariest elevator I’ve ever seen.

The painted floor makes it look like there is no floor! Not so sure I would ever get in ;)
