Are you OK when you have to go in a lift or on an escalator?

Do you get scared, or does your stomach "lurch" when you go in either of these?

Mine sometimes does in a lift -I remember very clearly going in the Twin Towers lift many years ago and the lift operator said jokingly (chillingly now) that "if one Tower falls the other will too" -said with a broad grin.
That lift and another in New York were very high and fast and left my heart down somewhere way below.

Escalators are not a problem except that sometimes I get scared as I near the top, for what reason I do not know.

That is a very eerie comment, wow.
Nah, I enjoy the view if I can see or just look at the floor numbers change so fast.
Occasionally....I'm a very clumsy girl so my heart lurches on escalators frequently as I regularly nearly fall over. In lifts, I'm fine but in my work lift I go up 39 floors and occasionally when it zips up super fast I get a bit woozy!
39 is a lot! Sometimes leaves my heart at 1.

I always worry that I'll get stuck in an elevator for hours, because that's what happened twice when I was a kid.

Escalators - not so much. You can always walk up/down in case it malfunctions.
I'm fine with them. Only ocassionally on a very fast lift in a high building can I feel a little weird, like the blood has rushed to my head or something.

Elevator, if it is going too high then sometimes a slight lurch. Escalators not at all
The only time my heart get's a flutter
is when I am standing close to some
drop dead gorgeous man!....True.
and Jonaj, your picture is an old one -he no longer looks like this!! I guess I have to admit I no longer look like I did 20 years ago either....

Elevators can make me feel icky.

Nope but every now and then my stomach will drop.
glass lifts and escalators that seem to bridge building interiors with no visible support structures, hate them and feel uncomfortable and unsafe everytime
I have always LOVED that funny feeling when going in a lift!! As a child I would beg my parents to 'Do it again'!!!! The longer the lift ride the better!!
They don't usually bother me. However, I remember one time years ago my husband and I were in a lift in a Singapore Hotel which freaked me out. It was a glass lift on the outside of a high-rise hotel and we travelled down to the ground in it. Really scary as I don't have a head for heights. I ended up facing the back wall of the lift for the entire journey as I just couldn't look out the front of the lift, which my husband said had a spectacular view - I took his word for it!
Yes. Yes. No. No.

There're really not too many circumstances, which can happen in life, which would faze me.


As a 13yo, saw a 9yo's skin partially ripped off his back when caught in an escalator at DJ's HO, in Sydney. It was one of the old type wooden ones'.
So anything after that was nearly a non-event.

I got caught in a S/C lift one time, followed Emerg. Procedures, as listed, & was out in two minutes'. I also had my mobile phone with me, but it wasn't needed.

So basically, both escalator travel, & lift riding, I enjoy.
Yes, I was terrified of the escalators, before I started work at DJ's, in Sydney, as a teen. Even now, at some railway stations, my heart misses a beat, when I look down to the bottom of the top! As far as lifts go, it's only the glass lifts that scare me, even on cruise ships! Not the 1 in the Apple shop on 5th Ave though, as that only goes down 1 floor, from the road. The whole shop is made from glass. Wonderful!
