Description

One of Oklahoma's greatest mysteries is Magnetic Hill, located near Springer.  Over the years, a phenomenon has brought hundreds of people to experience the force of Magnetic Hill for themselves.  On Magnetic Hill, you will get a sense that instead of your car rolling downhill with the motor turned off, it will actually roll uphill.  Drive to this rural road, stop your car at the bottom of the hill and put it in neutral, then feel a force "pull" you and the car up the hill.  Whether caused by ghosts, a magnetic force, alien contact or an optical illusion, this is something ...

Put a level on the road and you should find that it's an optical illusion and that you are actually going downhill. The thing called gravity is what pulls you. Science wins every time.

that's a new one on me never knew your speed odometer would read 10 mph when in neutral especially going backwards ,hmm who knows ive been wrong before

From Magnus Berg on 10/06/14

It's an optical illusion. No ghost or aliens etc

I've seen this before on a science show on television. It's the way your eyes perceive the landscape which makes it an optical illusion. The road is actually going down hill it just appears to look the opposite direction. Pretty interesting.

In the area around Lomita and San Pedro in California is also a road that will back cars up the hill. This actually is an optical illusion similar to the rooms designed to where you lean heavily in the room and water runs uphill. The terrain fools the eye.

This is Called Ghost Hill it is not Magnetic Hill. All of us here in Springer have been on this road when a lot of stranger thing have happned.


From Nita J Perry on 09/28/14

i find this awesome!!! I wonder how many more such places there are throughout Oklahoma and the rest of the country?


From Mary Jernigan on 09/28/14

So.... will it pull a car FORWARD uphill as well? Or a bicycle?


From Cris on 09/28/14

What is it then. Please explain. I don't believe it is super natural. I MUST know the scientific reason.


From Michael Rodman on 09/26/14

One of Oklahoma's greatest mysteries? this is just the result of perspective, since the horizon is obstructed. While it is interesting and possibly fun or creepy it is NOT a mystery.


From Brian Keith on 11/14/13

Peter, I think ghosts would have fun pulling cars uphill personally. What else would they have to do? Float around?


From Cliff on 10/29/13

There is a similar phenomenon south of Bartlesville. We call it Gravity Hill.


From Peter Welch on 08/04/13

Yes, the force is gravity and it is an optical illusion. Why is an illusion brought about by a natural landscape befuddling the calibration of our optic perception so dull that you have to bring up ghosts and aliens? Why would ghosts and aliens spend all day pulling cars uphill? Shame.
