Amazing Elevators

9 Feb

I know elevators don’t sound like the most glamorous topic, but I couldn’t believe how cool these ones are!  They were featured in BudgetTravel.  I’ve been in one of them (the one that goes up the St. Louis Arch!) but I really want to see some of these others…

This elevator in Germany goes THROUGH an aquarium!  Pretty sure I would never take the stairs again.

This is the sweet elevator pod you ride in to the top of the Arch.  They jam 5 people into this tiny space, so you really get to know your neighbor during the 4 minute ride!

St. Louis Arch

This 499 foot elevator in Switzerland is equal parts beautiful and terrifying!

You can get a good view of Stockholm by taking this little round elevator up the outside of a dome.  Reminds me of Epcot Center!

Skyview - Ericsson Globe

In China, this elevator takes you over 1,000 feet up a sheer cliff!  Then you can visit the Sky Walk which looks gorgeous but kind of scary (have you figured out I’m afraid of heights?)
