a ride to to the moon?

Where are all the novelty science education elevators?

I know of the Stratavator at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh and the Evolator at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. What other simulated elevator rides are out there that demonstrate scientific principles? Bonus points for one in Vancouver, as I am visiting there in a few weeks.

I know this isn't remotely as cool, but the physics department at UC Davis has a big chair on springs in the elevator, so if you time it just right you can hit the floor button and run over to the chair in time to notice the acceleration more clearly at the start and end of the ride. It's... kind of neat?
