Surprisingly cool elevators

I don’t think of “cool” when describing elevators, at least not most of the time. There are exceptions, however, and these are some of the best. The first one is in China, the second in New Zealand.

This, of course, is the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Oh, wait; that’s not an “of course;” we never see the tower! The view is certainly impressive!

This isn’t exactly an elevator. It’s called a Paternoster, and it does the same thing for an elevator that an escalator does for stairs.
