The world’s fastest elevator

This elevator can climb more than one kilometer every minute. It climbs close to 85 floors in just a matter of some seconds. This elevator is in the Taipei 101 building in downtown Taipei in Taiwan. One can feel the rush of adrenaline, the jump in the heart and pop in the ears when you ascend from the 2nd floor to the 89th floor viewing deck in just a matter of some seconds.

The world's fastest elevator at Taipei 101
This elevator has its place in the Guinness book of world records and one can climb it by buying a ticket to go to the viewing deck of Taipei 101. The ticket is fairly expensive and the wait is usually long, especially on weekends, but the experience, even though short-lived is an experience of a life time. The bonus is that this elevator is in the 2nd tallest building in the world.
