Spook Hill is a fun illusion spot in the Lake Wales area. Cars inexplicably defy the laws of science and roll uphill. This spot is officially recognized by the town and many teenagers and families enjoy this uphill-rolling entertainment. The Legend of Spook Hill includes an Indian village that was plagued by raids of a huge gator. The Chief killed the gator in a battle that created a small lake. Once the chief died, he was buried on the north side. Pioneer mail riders first discovered their horses laboring downhill, which gave the area its name. Once paved roads came into existence, cars appeared to coast uphill. Is it the gator seeking revenge or the chief protecting his land? This may be a great idea when your children and grandchildren come to visit you once you are settled into your active senior living communities.
