It is just ok if you are looking for an interesting legend. I would not go out of my way to drive there and didn't go for the second time. It is surely not worth a wait in line.

Not allot to say about this really. It's an optical illusion. It's ok if your in the area for a novelty thing to see and do for a few minutes but don't travel miles to do/see this.

My teen was not impressed, but her grandmother and I had a quaint chuckle while appearing to roll downhill. The sign describing the legend of Spook Hill is a bit confusing, but it was good, clean physics at work. Go gravity!

Driving east to west and back and forth on State Road 60, I’ve had the opportunity to drive through Lake Wales, Florida, on occasion. When doing so, I’ve frequently stopped at Spook Hill, a popular gravity hill located on a significant range of sand and...More
