“Kids loved it!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

My kids were fascinated by Spook Hill. There was one person in front of us so we hung back until they had there turn. My 11 year old son wanted to do it over and over so he could figure it out. Kind of tricky to find. You can put Spook Hill Elementary in your GPS and that will lead you to signs for the hill. We will definitely bring visitors here.

“Unique phenomenon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Just a 5-10 minute drive from Bok Tower - nothing fantastic, but just a fun stop along the way. Definitely something different to do and doesn't take much time out of anyone's schedule! Just try it!

“Just good old fashioned fascination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

This a nice place to include in your trip roster when in the area. It plays with the imagination and wonderment. It's not a physical thrill ride, but one for the imagination. In today's world, there's not much for people to wonder while experiencing, this is one.

“A fun, quirky, quick stop !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

It's just a pit stop and maybe a bit silly but, it calls out to the kid in all of us. Simply follow the rules on the billboard after reading the "Legend" of Spook Hill and prepare to be amazed...at least a little bit. Kids will be amazed and some adults will too. Don't over think it or you'll take away all the fun !!!

“Either you get it or you don't... I didn't.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

By following the directions of the sign exactly, a few times, I realized that I was wasting my time. It was very boring and I could not see my car moving whatsoever.
