Spook Hill















On the left is another reason I missed the WIXYcam. The other pic is a previous version of the sign taken from this article at roadsideamerica.com.

Spook hill is located in Lake Wales, Florida, on a road that goes along side of Spook Hill Elementary School. You drive your car down to the bottom of the hill, and stop at the white line. Next you put your car in neutral and take your foot off the brake. The car will proceed to coast UPHILL. Quite neat and you can't explain this.

If you are ever in historic downtown Lake Wales, follow the signs and you can find Spook Hill.

Next: From MCO to CAK. All good things must come to an end.

That sounds so cool. If I ever get to Florida I may have to check that out. Sindi has told me so much you that I finally got around to checking out your page. It's awesome.

Val:I can't explain it.

Kasper:Thank you for stopping here. This is just one of many things to check out if you are ever in central Florida.

I have heard of spook hill before. There was a show on tv about a year ago that talked about strange places to visit and Spook Hill was one of them. I like to learn about creepy stuff like that so I watch it on tv or read about it in books. I would love to have gone there though, totally cool! :>

LOL! I used to live in Florida back in the 60s and my parents [or maybe it was my grandpa] took all us kids to this spot when we were visiting our grandma. It was sorta freaky but I was more interested in getting some ice cream.

I'm sure some day we will find out the mystery, but for now I don't think it's freaky, spooky, or creepy. I think it's cool.

How interesting ... almost like invisible hands pushing you uphill. I tell you this Cliff, I have really enjoyed my visit here today --- I would love to know the why of this, but there are some blessing where it is better to enjoy, or one might lose the privilege.
