My husband took me to spook hill but I could not see the illusion. I wonder how many people can really see the car being pulled backwards. Maybe I need to have more imagination....

If first visited Spook Hill as a child many years ago. I still do not understnd the intrigue. It is a optical illusion at best. Over the years, the hill has been repaved and homes have been built around the site, lessening the effect. if you are on your way to Bok Tower, it is only a short detour.

If you are nearby anyway it is a fun little stop. Kids would get a kick out of it. It seems as if you are going up hill.
