The World’s 20 Weirdest & Craziest Elevators

The elevator is usually a small room or box that carries us to move up or down to reach the floor that we want in any building. In this small room you have buttons that are easily pushed to help you to reach your floor without any sophistication. In addition to these traditional elevators, there are other non-traditional and creative ones which are really crazy. These weird elevators are not only crazy because they look strange, but because they also use unprecedented ideas that are really attractive and fascinating. Here are a few of the weirdest and craziest elevators that can be found around the world.
