This Strange Phenomenon In An Oklahoma Town Is Too Weird For Words
In the small town of Springer, Oklahoma (near Ardmore) lies an ordinary hill with a strange phenomenon. If you put your vehicle in neutral at the bottom of the hill, it will suddenly appear to defy gravity as it rolls backward, uphill. Many theories exist about why things roll uphill instead of downhill. Whether caused by ghosts, a magnetic force, alien contact or an optical illusion, this is something you have to see for yourself.
"Magnetic Hill" is located on Pitt Rd. in Springer, not far from Ardmore. With caution, position your car at the "bottom" of the hill and put your car in neutral. Take your foot off the brake and you will experience the thrill of your car not only climbing the hill by itself, but gaining speed as it goes.
Magnetic Hill is located 1 1/2 miles west of I-35 and Highway 53. Head west to Pioneer/Pitt Road, then turn north and go about 1/2 mile to the bottom of the hill (Pitt Road is NW of Springer, Oklahoma). As you drive to the bottom of the hill you'll be heading north off Highway 53.
