University of Leicester has one. I know someone who had to ride it (for the first time) on the way to her PhD defense. Truly unnecessary added pressure.

Was it in the Attenborough building? Because that one's a great paternoster!

WHO, IN GOD'S NAME, THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?

Many, many grown adult people were involved in the creation, design and construction of this thing and none of them ever said, "Wait, maybe this isn't such a good idea."
SolRo - 2011-12-19
It was probably designed in the early 20th century, when having a car with a steering colomn that would impale you in any low speed crash was thought to be fine.

lead paint

radium water

etc

It culls the slow & clumsy.

Don't know how appropriate the music is; if I was anywhere near this thing, I would probably do the opposite of the song title.
CuteLucca - 2011-12-18
...what happens at the top? Like, if the building is 12 stories tall, and you accidentally miss that stop, will you get flipped upside-down as the thing reverses direction? ...because I can see a lot of little old ladies breaking their hips, if that's the case.

It hangs down as it moves, like a ferris wheel.

There is a sign between floors at 1:37 that said "IT IS NOT DANGEROUS TO OVER-RIDE PROVIDED YOU STAND STILL"

Because if you move you will attract the attention of the things that dwell in the strange spaces beyond the gears of the Paternoster.

The ones you rode didn't have giant Quisinart blades at the top and bottom to mince the unwary?

You kids are getting soft.

Inspired by the Quake 3 engine and its homicidal elevators.

I'm taking the stairs.

Do they call it a paternoster because you say a prayer before you use it?
Millard - 2011-12-18
It's because your father says "noster" when he sees it.

Jet Bin Fever - 2011-12-19
This is a liability waiting to happen.
Hooker - 2011-12-19
Yeah, they just installed it.

erratic - 2011-12-19
Never knew this existed til now. I actually thought of something similar but dismissed it as a bad idea for the obvious reasons. Seems like it has a kill switch near the top of each floor just in case your head is sticking in the shear zone. I could still see lots of ways for it to fail.
Comatose2 - 2011-12-19
See that's the thing - the killswitch will not fail either way. It either kills the power, or kills the passenger. The killswitch cares not, for it is infallible.

Nobody know what happens when you reach... THE 13TH FLOOR. *thunder clap*

As a kid, I thought these things were only found in Italy.
Siebenstein - 2011-12-19
These are fun and exciting to ride.
cognitivedissonance - 2011-12-19
I kinda want to have sex in it.

kingofthenothing - 2011-12-19
well yeah you can push the other person out when you're done and what are they going to do?

Redford - 2011-12-19
I am a slightly clumsy person by nature due to a slight handicap I've had since birth. Because of this I have to pay attention when I'm going down stairs (or fall on my butt) and avoid escalators if I can. Pretty sure if I used this thing on a daily basis it would only be so long until something magical happened.
hammsangwich - 2011-12-19
Never rode in a paternoster, but I think a man-lift in a grain elevator is the next scariest means of conveyance.
That guy - 2012-01-02
Is it crushing? I guess "crushing".
