ghostvator

noun; blending
An elevator that will open on a floor, and reveal that nobody is inside.
 
Nonce word. Blend of “ghost” and “elevator," as it is implied that a ghost is riding the elevator.
Etymology : “Ghost” came from Old English “gast,” meaning spirit, which came from Proto-Germanic “*ghoizdoz,” meaning “ghost.” “Elevator,” as a machine, comes from the same word used with regard to muscles. That term came from the Latin “elevator,” which is the past participle stem of “elevare.”
