Assuming the hole went straight through, they’d accelerate until they reached the point where the net gravitational force above and below them was equal in both directions, then momentum would carry them back out, with net gravity slowing them back down to zero. Exactly what happens with a pendulum, but in a straight line.
In fact, if you watched a pendulum from its point of support, you’d see exactly the same linear movement we’re discussing.
