Imagine the terror of seeing a big, gaping hole in the middle of an elevator shaft. Shoppers at Southside Shopping Centre in London, England will see their lives flash before their eyes as they are about to enter an everyday elevator. When the doors open, shoppers are faced with a 3D elevator illusion created by artist Andrew Walker.

The illusion reveals a deep and treacherous elevator shaft. Created to promote a forthcoming ride at a local amusement park, the ride promises to take thrill seekers on an unforgettable underground journey through caves. The triple whammy of people's most common fears -- heights, darkness and claustrophobia -- are combined and thrown at people in an unsuspecting place.
