A gravity hill is a place where a slight downhill slope appears to be an uphill slope due to the layout of the surrounding land, creating the optical illusion that water flows uphill or that a carleft out of gear will roll uphill.
In the 1800s, farmers were puzzled when it seemed that their horses had to strain to pull wagons that were seemingly going downhill; then on the way home, the wagons seemed to get tangled up with the horses’ feet while going uphill.

There is also a zoo, shops, restaurants and Water Park around the Magnetic Hill site.

Fun Fact:
In 1933 a group of St Johns reporters brought out scientific equipment to investigate the mystery and that drew in additional tourists to the area. A local woman, Muriel Lutes named the site Magnetic Hill and started selling ice cream and souvenirs to the visitors.
