Spook Hill in Lake Wales, where cars roll up hill

posted by Brian Munchie -

In Lake Wales, there is a hill called "Spook Hill" where cars roll up hill! This defies all laws of science and baffles everyone who visits spook hill. Unlike many other urban legends floating around, this one is recognized by Lake Wales and there is actually a large sign on North Wales Drive in Lake Wales explaining "The Legend of Spook Hill" and how to experience the effect, they have even painted a big white line in the place you should stop your car and put it in neutral. 

So where did the legend of Spook Hill come from? "Many years ago an Indian village on Lake Wales was plagued by raids of a huge gator. The Chief, a great warrior, killed the gator in a battle that created a small lake. The chief was buried on the north side. Pioneer mail riders first discovered their horses laboring down hill, thus naming it "Spook Hill." When the road was paved, cars coasted up hill.

Have you been to "Spook Hill" in Lake Wales? If so, did you experience your car rolling up hill?
