The world’s shortest escalator is less than 3 feet high.

Posted on: February 6, 2011

This hilariously pointless piece of machinery is located in the Kawasaki More’s department store in Japan and was declared the world’s shortest by Guinness in 1989. If you think the absurdity ends with its height, you are quite mistaken. Yes, the escalator is only 32.8 inches high (about 2 ½ feet). Yes, the escalator moves downward instead of up, rendering it even more useless. The funniest part about this escalator, though? After you finish “riding” it, you must take a set of manual stairs which immediately follows!!
