How to Make an Escalator in Minecraft

Posted on

In this article, we are going to share how to make an escalator in Minecraft. For your information, this works in Minecraft 1.10, but in older versions you may need sticky pistons with blocks attached. This is a fast escalator which is easy to build. Of course, it is very useful for buildings or even Minecraft mall maps.

Apparently, there are some steps that you have to do in making an escalator in Minecraft. To see those steps, just look at the text below.


A piston is a block that can push the blocks, players and mobs when given a redstone pulse. While a sticky piston has the same function as a piston. But, it also pulls the block on its face back when its redstone signal is turned off, unlike the piston that leaves the pushed block in place. You have to know that the pistons push you up then over up and so on.


Here is the step where you have to put the repeaters and redstone to the contraption. Please be careful when you are setting the repeater ticks. Please look closely. Anyways, here is a pattern to the ticks if you cannot see. The number indicates the number of clicks in each row. Both bottom and top repeaters have to be programmed the same. Please ensure the space from the button to the circuit has repeaters so it has enough power and enough time for you to step into the escalator. For note: 1-3-6-9-11. Each number is a row and indicates the number of clicks.


Finally, you have made an escalator in Minecraft. This is going to be useful for a custom map or some sort of thing you build. We hope you will enjoy this creation.

Talking about this, here we are going also to talk about Piston Elevator. Apparently, there are many designs of piston elevators. They all essentially use pistons to move the players either up or down. Now, we are going to talk three of them.


This fast elevator uses gravity and water to compress primed TNT into a small area, making a powerful explosion force. It is expensive in that TNT CANNON is not renewable, and also is dangerous on Survival.


These elevators are able to ascend and descend. Also, they are able to stop and start at desired floors. They can be complicated and require more resources. The multi floor elevator often use characteristics of other designs. They are able to be practical but can take a very long while to make. Please be patient when you are creating this strenuous build.


This up and down elevator has a maximum height of 12 units due to the limited amount of blocks a piston can move. Also, this design is relatively slow, but thanks to its small form factor and simple redstone circuits this is able to be suited for the buildings.
