Try making a system where the ball enters a little capsule and is then taken high and dropped out. I konw that's pretty much a lot of lifts but just try a different method.

Inspiration. not Copying. :-P Find ideas in things that they have done. Also look at places that things pass through everyday, (pipes) and base an element off of that.

I'm a fan of both. It really depends on what pieces you have.

Makes me think of a rope lift, or something similar

Not really rope but more like controlling the chain?

Making the "elevator" spin while it's going up to the deposit point?

Exactly if you use two parts of chain it won't spin.

That are motores of a set ow called cyber knex. There is also a prozessor that can make them turn. But they don't need it. They can also turn at their on. You'll have to press so long as you want it to turn the button to turn it. You could mke that it strts turning coz of the whait of te ball (http://www.knexusergroup.eu/acatalog/info_K70022.html and http://www.knexusergroup.eu/acatalog/info_K70012.html)
