    I mean, the execution of such a task would be entirely up to your own interpretation. I personally would probably have the elevator itself be a train that follows a path down the elevator shaft at a high velocity which would linearly ramp up.

    You can always use the physics engine and convert the brushes to physics entities on the fly. That's sure not to get stuck.

    Remember to use env_shake to make the effect more convincing!
