The Elevator

Julia the Wombat, Karin Angerbjörn, Sam Samson, et al.


We will build Urban Burns most thrilling adventure ride of the year! Hoist yourself up 2 meters over the ground in our splendid human powered elevator. You do all the hard work of pulling yourself up to a special surprise!

Full description of the concept

This elevator was part of an obstacle course for The Borderland 2017, and will be making a dazzling comeback for Urban Burn 2018, though somewhat modified. Basically, this is a 4 meter tall A-frame structure. From it hangs a chair, in which you can sit. Equipped with state of the arts seat-belts for your safety. You pull yourself up about 2 meters, using a rope that is looped through pulleys for extra leverage. But why....? Well, because there is a special surprise for you waiting at the top!! The theme is a mash-up of steampunk/ victorian/ mad-hat/ and carnival! Think whacky and whimsical! Underneath we hope to make a little cozy space where you can wait for your turn, cuddle, watch, whatever... :)

This ride is intended to be safe for adults and children alike (Parents, please accompany and assist your children, they shouldn't be doing this alone!)

How can other burners co-create with you?

If you have decorations that fall under the theme steampunk, victorian, carnival, mad hat, we would be more that happy to borrow them. Red, gold, stripes are good colors! Carpets and pillows for underneath would be greatly appreciated! If you happen to have access to lots of scrap metal that is not too sharp, we might be able to use that. We would love help during assembly on Thursday and Friday.

What is this?

Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Urban Burn Stockholm is a platform that allows you to share your dreams.



  • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? power for 5-10 light chains

  • Will there be light? YES! There will be many light chains wrapped around this dream :)

  • Will anything burn? Nothing will burn

  • What is your audio footprint? Well, we will for sure be hearing the occasional jubilations from this adventure ride, WOOHOO and I REACHED THE TOP, as well as the ringing or tooting of an achievement bell/ clown horn.
