Assuming you drop into the hole,
The more down you go, the heat will start increasing and you will become a huge french fry
When you arrive at the centre of the earth the inertia will carry you forward and you will come out the other end.
But at the other end,if nobody catches you, you will fall in again and the cycle would repeat.
