Why do you get dizzy stepping on to a broken escalator?

Question

Why do you feel dizzy when you get on an escalator, even when it’s broken?
Bez, Gerrard’s Cross

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: James O’Brien
Qualification: I've been on escalators before
Answer: It’s because your brain is expecting it to be moving, so when it isn’t, your body sends a message back to the brain, which is the feeling of dizziness.
