How to make a down elevator in Minecraft magma block

Making an elevator is not as hard as it looks.

It’s quite simple, whether you want to make a down elevator or an up elevator.

All you need are some basic blocks, and by “basic,” I mean that you only need a magma block to build a down elevator, and soul sand found in the Nether to build an up elevator.

So, building an elevator is not that complicated after all.

These are the essential requirements for building an elevator, but there is one crucial element that you cannot do without, and that is kelp.

Kelp helps to generate movement in water, which is necessary for the elevator to function.

After placing kelp in the lift structure, which must have water inside it, the water will start moving. Once the water starts moving, you can place a block that you can use to ascend or descend.

You can find a step-by-step video guide below on how to make it.
