Hmm… how can I make a pit trap more entertaining? Check out the diabolical bullshit Perkins wrote in Life's Bazaar, the first installment of Shackled City in Dungeon magazine.
Gnomish pit traps spikes on the walls. The lid closes and locks, next round the room flips sideways, putting you onto the new spike floor. Repeat.

The pit trap is actually a bag of holding.
It’s also full of spoiled milk. Swim for your lives. My player did a portable hole full of apple cider vinegar the other night.

Put a portal at the bottom and on the ceiling below, then watch your players panic as their characters reach terminal velocity!

– It's a reverse gravity trap that catapults adventurers into a blade barrier at the ceiling
