  • In this Scary Tuesday, we are gonna get a bit mystic and playful, and we are gonna tell

  • you about the Elevator Game.

  • A ritual of a korean origin that takes you to an unknown dimension to contact spirits.

  • If you are the kind of person that has always felt like exploring other dimensions, this

  • is your challenge.

  • You only need to go through a simple procedure to move to a different world, completely dark

  • and spooky.

  • The requirements you need to meet this game are quite simple, specially if you live in

  • a city - when you live in the countryside, it gets a bit more difficult.

  • The thing is, you need to be inside a building with an elevator, at least 10 floors high.

  • It's important that you are alone in the elevator, and it's better if you try it

  • when there is not many people passing by, so you don't have neighbors calling the

  • elevator - if this happens, you have yo start over again!

  • If you are brave enough to play, we recommend that you grab some paper and a pencil to make

  • notes - the steps you need to go through are a bit confusing.

  • The first thing you gotta do to try and get to the other dimension is get on the elevator

  • on the first floor.

  • Then, you have to press the button for the 4th floor.

  • Once the elevator gets there, you have to press the button for the second floor and

  • so go back down.

  • When you are on the second floor, you have to press the button for the 6th floor, you

  • have to wait, and then when you get to the 6th floor you press the 2nd floor button again.

  • Once there, you have to press the button for the 10th floor.

  • And when you reach the 10th floorpress the button for the 5th floor.

  • Right when we reach the 5th floor, a mysterious woman can get on the elevator and try to draw

  • our attention.

  • According to the rules of the game, we have to ignore her, completely.

  • She is an spirit trying to disorientate the player and take him to a terrible dimension.

  • Now, you have to press floor number 1.

  • If at that point, the elevator decides to take you to the 10th floor, get ready - that

  • means you've done it all right.

  • When the doors of the 10th floor open, you can either get off the elevator or stay inside.

  • If you chose to get out of it and the woman had gone in on the 5th floor, she's gonna

  • ask you - which floor are you going to?

  • Don't answer.

  • Don't look at her.

  • You'll know you made it to the Other World thanks to a sign, and only one sign: the only

  • person there will be you.

  • You'll be in the same building, but in a different dimension.

  • Not all dimensions are the same, you can make it to a peaceful one but also to a very dangerous

  • one.

  • All the lights will be off, and the only thing you'll be able to see through the windows

  • is a red cross in the distance.

  • Some people say electronic devices such as cell phones or cameras dont work in the Other

  • World, some others say they do.

  • It's not really clear.

  • In order to go back to the right dimension, if you stay inside the elevator, the only

  • thing you have to do is press the button for the first floor.

  • If it doesn't work, keep pressing until it does work.

  • When the elevator reaches the 1st floor, you have to leave as soon as the doors open.

  • No looking back, no talking.

  • If you chose to gett off the elevator on the 10th floor, you have to repeat exactly the

  • same process again, from that same elevator.

  • Only that, instead of taking you to the 10th floor, the elevator will leave you on the

  • 1st floor.

  • Seems simple, huh?

  • The only bad thing is if you get tired of exploring, or if you happen to be in danger

  • and need to run away, as we have just told you you need to take the same steps again,

  • that means, starting from the 1st floor.

  • So you have to go down the stairs of the other dimension, down the stairs 10 floors.

  • Sounds more complicated now, doesnt it?

  • Those who have played this ritual game recommend not doing it under any circumstances - fears

  • take control of you, as a consequence you start getting lost and the fear of not being

  • able to go back to your dimension gets really intense.

  • It's important to stay focused.

  • If you remember Elisa Lam's video, one of the hypothesis behind her weird behavior and

  • her disappearance was that she was trying to take part in this game.

  • What do you think?

  • Would you dare to go to a different dimension?

  • Are you gonna try?
