    force yourself to get on escalators. the more you force yourself on them, the more used to them you get. eventually, you'll stop being afraid. :]

    the trip up or down will go faster if you have a friend to talk to or if you're thinking about being somewhere else or if you're listening to music. just distract yourself.

    good luck!

    You can only overcome your fear by going on them. If you get motion sickness then close your eyes. If that's not it then I'm not real sure why you're afraid of them...

    Come on its not like it will open up and devour you, they are just like stairs so pretend you are walking up the stairs without moving
