Top Mystery Spots

Known as mystery spots or gravity hills, these are places in nature where the laws of physics do not apply as we currently understand them.

In these places, cars roll backwards uphill, brooms stand on end and people are able to balance themselves on a chair 3 feet off the ground perched on a one inch ledge. Amazing stuff.

We went to the Michigan Mystery Spot and witnessed this crazy phenomena for ourselves. Members of our party reported feeling lightheaded and sick afterwards.

We also went to the gravity hill in Moncton, Canada and were in the car when we put it in neutral and took a backwards ride up a hill.

Now, whether or not it's just optical illusion isn't the point. It's pretty awesome to experience it either way.

And, just for the record, some of these places ARE NOT illusions. Even the trees grow in weird, bent unnatural angles. There is definitely a weird force at work.

Take a road trip and see for yourself.
