Paternoster Lifts

Paternoster lifts are elevators with no doors, no buttons, and no formal stops. Think of it as an elevator/escalator mashup.

Naturally, they’re far more dangerous and far less accessible than a traditional elevator, so there aren’t a ton of them around anymore. That thing looks scary as hell!
