    I would like players to get "pulled" into a vent when it opens. The vent is slightly elevated from the ground and I'm not quite sure how to do it.

    I figured it may have something to do with trigger_push but I'm not sure if it works since the vent is elevated from the ground.

    point_push with a negative value should work

    After about 1 hour of testing.. turns out point_push doesnt actually push you up until you jump. (might be wrong.)

    That's true but a trigger_apply_impulse can push players up into the air so your trigger_push can affect them.
    Also a trigger_catapult (same entity as Portal 2 Jump-pads and PASStime Boost-pads) does a similar job and can be aimed at an info_target
