Cars appear to go faster up this hill than down it: an optical illusion or one of nature's mysteries?

Thrilling experience, don't be afraid to try. Costs about $8 And you can go as many times as you want as long as you go back in line of course. Unlike person behind me who tried to follow us down the hill and attempted to...More

Interesting illusion. You do feel as though you are moving uphill. However, I would not have driven out of my way to do this.

I know that this a only an optical illusion, but it is a feeling that everyone should experience.. it definitely feels like you are being pulled up hill.

Kids felt $6 for the car to drive on a couple of hundred meters of road was overpriced but did enjoy the illusion. As a per person rate of less than $2 each it's not too bad but it is just driving/rolling on a road

Was unimpressed with this illusion of "coasting uphill". Did not get that feeling at all. Would not waste $6 on this. If it was free I'd try it but only to say I did it. Much better ways to spend your money.

If possible, try to come here without reading anything about Magnetic Hill. Just enjoy the experience, and you can later learn how it all works. And even if you already know the secret, the experience is still well worth it. As an indication of how...More

The experience of having the magnet pull your car up the hill I'm sure doesn't happen anywhere else on earth.

I love places like this, and I'm a sucker for them. Someone tried to ruin it for us by telling us that it's an optical illusion, well BOO on them - it was just pure fun and magical and that's the way we like to...More

We came here to experience driving down magnetic hill and getting the sensation that the car is rolling backwards uphill. It definitely lived up to that hype! We were surprised to also find a little colorful village area here with great shops and all sorts...More
