The Sky Shuttle elevator is being recorded as both the fastest double-deck elevator, with a speed of 600 meters per minute, and the elevator covering the longest distance.

Visitors can board the elevator to Seoul Sky from the lobby levels on B1 and B2. Seoul Sky will provide a complete view of the entire city through the glass walls on all sides. On clear days, visitors will be able to see as far as Songdo, Incheon, and the Yellow Sea.
