On a sunny day in Moncton, New Brunswick, we drove our car to Magnetic Hill and put the car in neutral.
After a brief moment, the car steadily moved upwards on its own accord, and picked up a pretty good speed. We did this backwards and forwards. (It was tons of fun!)
Magnetic Hill has been an attraction in Moncton for over 100 years! Way back in the 1880s, people were starting to notice that horses pulling carts would have the cart go up ahead of them. A little later on, cars would roll up the hill unexpectedly.
This is how the hill got it’s reputation for being magnetic. As it turns out, Magnetic Hill is a special type of hill called a Gravity Hill. I’m not going to ruin the magic, so I’ll leave it up to you to decide. Magnetic Hill…magnetic or magic?
