  • World's Fastest Elevator Takes You to the 121st Floor in 1 Minute

    Up, up, and away! Visitors flocked to the recently opened Lotte World Tower to take the world's longest and fastest double-decker elevator, dubbed 'Sky Shuttle', in Seoul, on Wednesday. The elevator whisks passengers from the basement to the 121st-floor in one minute, at an average speed of 33 feet per second. Opened to the public in April after six years of construction, the building, which is the highest in Seoul and the fifth tallest in the world, currently holds three world records; for the world's fastest elevator, the world's tallest glass-bottomed sky walk and the world's highest observation deck. Standing at 1,820 feet tall, the tower, which is said to redefine Seoul's skyline, is nearly a thousand feet above the city's next highest building, the International Finance Centre Office Tower. The double-decker Sky Shuttle, which is basically two elevator cabins stacked on top of each other, can hold a maximum of 52 passengers at one time and connects the ground floor of the Lotte Tower directly with the observation deck. The inside of the cabins keep visitors entertained with 15 separated OLED TV screens, which show breathtaking scenes of the South Korean capital for the short ride. How would you like to zoom to the 121st floor in just 60 seconds?
