In this post, I will be telling about what actually this game is all about, how you can perform the elevator ritual. With this, you can also read some real experiences of people who played elevator ritual.

What is the Elevator Ritual Game?


Elevator ritual is a type of creepy game that first originated on a Korean website. This is considered to be the most dangerous and scary game. This is not a simple game either; it can make you enter a different world by just taking a lift.

Believe it or not! It’s up to you but do not read beyond this point if you are a faint-hearted person.

Yes, with this game, you can actually go to another world where everything you see is dark, where you will only see emptiness, where you will be alone…

And how can you do that?? Well, continue reading..

Is the Elevator Game Real or Fake?

There are many who believe in this ritual and experienced the effects of this ritual.

In 2013, it is rumored that a girl, Elisa Lam died while performing this ritual. According to Reddit and other websites, some people have tried this ritual and experienced strange and scary things. However, it is very difficult for a person like me to rely on such things. This maybe real or may be false but it’s interesting.


Here’s a word from someone who actually performed this,

My friend actually tried the elevator game last year. He even took a photograph of the destination floor; it was pitch black and the only visible thing was a reddish/orangish light in front of him. It looked like a light at the end of a tunnel; no distinct shape at all. He mentioned that the air was stuffy and so it was rather difficult to breathe there.

How to perform the Elevator Ritual?

It’s my warning to all the readers; please don’t try it because it can risk your life. But, however, it is interesting to know that these things also survive in this world. Let’s take a look at how this creepy and dangerous ritual can be performed.


The elevator ritual requires a building which has to be at least ten storey high and an elevator of course.

All you need now is to step into the elevator alone on the first floor. Yes, alone. However, you will be accompanied by someone in the middle of your journey. It is what the scariest part of the game is.

After you are into the elevator on the first floor, just follow these steps:

  1. First press the button to go to the fourth floor but do not exit.
  2. Now you’re on the fourth floor, press the button to the second floor.
  3. Press the button to go to the sixth floor.
  4. Press the button to go to the second floor again.
  5. Press the button to go to the fifth floor.
  6. When you’re on the fifth floor, a strange looking lady would enter the elevator. DO NOT look or speak to her and Keep your eyes down because this lady is a paranoiac/para-natural creature. If you look and speak to her she would take you away with her. So, ignore the lady.
  7. Press the button to the first floor.
  8. The elevator goes up to the tenth floor instead of going to the first; you’ll have reached the Otherworld. Just step forward to see the other world. The woman will start to ask, “Where are you going?” Do not answer her—just move forward to explore the Otherworld.
  9. Now, just follow the above steps again to return back to your world. Strange! Isn’t it?

If you faint in the process and wake up in your own house, there’s a high chance that you’ll be taken back to the world again.

Quite dangerous, right???

Well, this is indeed a ritual being talked about!!

Elisa Lam Mystery: Did She perform the Elevator Ritual?

In 2013, a girl named Elisa Lam maybe tried this ritual and she was killed by some spirits and this incident was apparently captured on CCTV, and up until today, there was no explanation for her death. Her video is easily available online. You can watch it if you like horror videos.

After this incident shown in the video, she was not found anywhere and later, after a few days, HER DEAD BODY was found in the HOTEL WATER TANK up on the terrace.

Scary right???

Real Experiences of Elevator Ritual Game by People who played it 

According to people that have successfully completed the game, the other world looks the same that you are from.

The difference is just that there was darkness all around and you can only see a red cross in some distance.  Some people also wrote about the lady that enters at 5th floor. A person from Singapore wrote his experience in his blog “I had to try really, really hard not to stare her right in the f-ing face. She wasn’t even a girl; she was more of a halo of dark energy that glowed really brightly if that makes sense”.

A person from Singapore wrote his experience in his blog “I had to try really, really hard not to stare her right in the f*cking face. She wasn’t even a girl; she was more of a halo of dark energy that glowed really brightly if that makes sense”.

There are many more experiences that can be found on the Reddit page where people openly shared all their experiences of playing elevator game.

Here are some more excerpts from the real life experiences of people…

Fifth Floor. On this floor, a woman was standing, directly outside the elevator as the door opened. I know I wasn’t supposed to look at her, but I didn’t think to stare at the floor, or the ceiling, or the buttons. I was staring straight ahead, and when the door slid open, she and I were face to face.

Coincidence. It was a coincidence. After all, all the stories described a pale girl, a scary girl. She wasn’t. She had a nice smile, and warm, brown eyes. I jumped back and away from her. She seemed sorry to have startled me.

I was shocked, but kept telling myself it was a coincidence. She wasn’t a horror, this girl. She had light brown hair, like mine, but longer. She was pretty, and regularly dressed.

“Sorry, you scared me,” I said. She did not reply. When she didn’t, I was scared, I was scared again. I stopped smiling. When did I start smiling? I stopped smiling.

Another excerpt says,


It is light out, but my hands are still shaking. I am sweating like crazy. Someone has been banging on my window for the last three hours. I can hear her laughing. Why don’t my neighbors hear her? Why don’t they see her? Why doesn’t someone do SOMETHING?

Please help, NoSleep. I am ready to take the easy way out. I have had a pistol in my lap since I got home. You guys know the supernatural.
