Gravity Falls


Mooresville's Secrets( Gravity Hill )

   Officer Billy Snyder first heard about Gravity Hill in the 70s and says that Gravity Hill has been known to pull cars uphill for decades. People would drive to the exact hill in between 710 Keller Hill Rd and 708 County Hill Rd to put their car in neutral. Then, the car would start being pulled uphill. Some say that the heavier the car the faster it goes. Some also say that it matters if the car is facing east or west. It definitely works though and was even on an episode of MythBusters. The hill is actually a very convincing optical illusion, so even today people still visit it.

    “I think everyone should try it. It's really cool how you look like you're being pulled up a hill,” Snyder said.
