“Revist after 40 Years - Still Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Still a great family attraction. Extremely reasonable attraction. Great shops for souvenirs and pictures - didn't visit the theme park area just the original magnetic hill and loved it all over again after 40 years! Extremely clean and very friendly staff!

“So lame”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Pretty much you pay $5 and your car rolls backwards without you pressing the gas. I would never suggest this place to anyone. The wharf village looked cute when we were driving in, we also noticed they had a beaver tail place. All of the stores in the little village were gift shops. The beaver tail place had awful service... We had to wait like 15 mins in line to order and then once we ordered, the girls working there took their sweet time making the beaver tails, so it took 15 mins to get our beaver tails. Not impressed!

Yes, it appears you are going up hill when you are actually going down... yes, shake your head... it was a hoot!

“The hill is awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Magnetic Hill is awesome, we put our car in neutral and it did in fact roll up the hill in reverse. Freakin' cool! The park itself is pretty small but the magnetic hill on it's own is worth the trip just to say you have done it.
