Spook Hill

A gravity or magnetic hill in Lake Wales, FL. When cars are positioned in the right spot, put in neutral and allowed to roll back, it gives the illusion that the car is actually travelling uphill rather then down. After giving it a whirl a couple times, we found the illusion to be nothing spectacular. Because of a line of cars forming behind us, we sped away without a successful go. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the jaunt was the nearby elementary school whose mascot was none other than Casper, the Friendly Ghost, demonstrating how the town of Lake Wales has fully embraced their tourist trap.
