    Mumbo : water elevator is the slowest elevator *1.13 soulsand and magma block update* Water elevator: hold my beer

      @Vance Productions™ 2 dont drown while in bubbles

    • mlee6050

      I love old so use old water elevator and with the 1.16 blocks I yet to remember them so I just craft 1.14 and below, I refused to cheat by using the green book

    • mlee6050

      @Vance ProductionsTM 2 going down can use old method of water block at bottom

    • beepboopdai

      No it should be hold my water


    4 years ago but still recomended

  • JustJum

    1:06 going up stairs can be around 50% faster if it's in a straight line, and you spam the space bar. (And it barely drains your hunger bar) Learnt this the first time I tried windows 10 edition, and didnt think it would be the same for java but apparently it is. All my friends wonder how on earth I always beat them walking up the stairs since pretty much nobody knows this trick lmao

    • mlee6050

      @doge okay, I do minimum for the two block height to travel in, also I use stairs as then can go off the side to any y level so easier than being limited like some elevators

    • derpyfaceddude

      mlee6050 it needs to be 5 blocks tall

    • derpyfaceddude

      JustJum Yeah I use that used to use that for my mines, I would have a staircase down to y 11 and going up I spammed the space and yeah. Now I use a soul sand elevator because it’s faster

    • mlee6050

      Not for me as if mining I keep hitting head but as not mine like 4 tall

    Finally, the fastest way is both one of the cheapest and most versatile.

    ah, I really want Mumbo to look back on this and see how much he loves the thing he hated. water elevators.

  • Nagatsu

    Just in case anyone was wondering, putting on the diamond armour doesn’t take you to the top because the armour has knock back resistance, which is why he said you need more tnt

    • Nagatsu

      ALPHA Clan netherite just adds extra knock back resistance but diamond armour still has some knock back resistance

    The question is, how long did it take to make the elevators?

    I made a hidden lever to get to my unfinished base with sticky pistons and was really proud of it, then I saw walking houses

      i agree

    • that

      In creative see, i managed to do it in 0 seconds. but on survivala dn on servers, its a bit laggy and takes 7.38 seconds to do the full hundred blocks, taking 2nd place.

  • lycanthrope71

    I'd love to see you make an updated version of this video, using bubble column elevators, and other modern game mechanics.

  • PaperTonne

    Just using plain water while "sprinting" and pressing spacebar makes you move about 6.25 blocks per second. You can interrupt every 40 blocks or so to breathe. Cheap, quick, easy and slim.

  • Waldo

    Some days ago I saw someone making a water elevator with sould sand and magma blocks to go up faster and go down faster respectively. But I found that completely ridiculous since you can make one to go up faster just with minecarts, or even just boats. And the most absurd part is: you can make a much faster one to go down just placing water at the bottom and falling. XD

    This was made pre 1.13, now soul sand elevators are probably the most cost-effective elevator for survival. I have one that takes about 14 seconds to go from bedrock to around 120 blocks up. All you need is one soul sand block, one water bucket, and something to encase the waterfall. Without spending ghastly amounts of resources, probably the fastest way up

    Thanks to the Aquatic update, water elevators are actually practical now!

  • Jacob

    I used to be obsessed with old school piston elevators. I thought they were the coolest thing ever. I built them all the time. They were so much fun. I even build them on servers. MobbinMinecraft made this one that had a variable speed mechanism and it kinda sorta worked on servers but still not all that great

  • Yukihyo

    Ive been a way from minecraft since villagers were first released as basic passive mobs. Back then water elevators were the quickest and economical to build(because all you needed was a bucket of water). I noticed that your elevator is only one block wide which i rememer being slower than having at least 2-3 block wide colum of water. I used to make a plus pattern water colum elevator and that was my diamond mine access. Has that changed?

  • Troy’s_not__gamer

    If your in survival then I would recommend doing what he did with the Minecart but with boats instead cause they’re super cheap

    Don't know if somebody already said that, but it doesn't work with diamond armour cause of the knockback resistance. At least I'm pretty sure that's the case.

    for the water elevator you can also use soul sand it makes it faster

    I have something to say about the Last elevator, as you know for TNT you need Gunpowder wich gets dropped by Creppers(wich are Agressive Mobs btw) and won’t Spawn in PeacfulMode so the TNT launcher as well as almost any PistonElevator(wich exaption of an Paternoster, bcs of the Slimeballs you can only get from Slimes) aren’t possible to build in Survival with Peacful. This isn’t supposed to be an HateComment so pls don’t turn the Sektion into an Warzone where everyone is firing at me :-(

    Your horse staircase one looked like it took a while to build. So me and my friend found a new way thats really fast use cakes. Put all the cakes eat one slice then 2 slice 3 slice and so on when u get to 1 cake peace place a block and redi the sequence Its really cool but as far as we are sure it only wirks on a horse.

    The nether portal one is the fastest if you have that mod that makes you see through portals its even faster than Creative mod you wont get a loading screen and plus it depends what your pc specs are Mumbo

    I remember the old water ladder design.. back in the day that was the fastest way to travel up

    • foodflare

      +Tinfoil Chef there's a water ladder design out that is still quite quick, it uses fence posts and signs and functions similarly to how a normal ladder does but faster.

  • SirDurtle

    It’s funny. The water elevator was the worst one, but in 1.14 now the water elevator is probably one of the best ones when you use soul sand.

    I was blown away by the 3.3 seconds of the Minecraft clicker. I’ve only watched a few of your videos, and I already love them!

  • Kirby703

    More recently than this video, you can make bubble columns with soul sand at the bottom. They let you travel 104 blocks in about 6 seconds, so they're not the fastest, but I'd still recommend them because they cost a lot less iron than the minecart clicky elevator.

    the fastest way is the water 1 if getting down when u go into swim mode in the newer versions

  • DragonCrafter04

    I found a faster way. Summon 100 end crystals on the same block frame, and stand on a post above them. 100 blocks in 0.002 seconds

    • mnajib09

      InshaAllah work, however make sure you disable the Tnt Explosion or the ender crystals will destroy surrounding blocks


    Mumbo you can travel up ladders fasters by holding down spacebar and forwards.

    Minecart clicker is without a doubt the best one. Very cheap, not even remotely complicated to build and goes super fast. Honestly, everything else is just bad and way too expensive for a survival world.. there's no reason not to go for the minecart elevator out of the ones in this video.
