Visitor Tips and News About Gravity Hill
We've tried many "gravity hills" and most don't seem to work -- but we were very surprised with this one. It worked going forward and backward. Very exciting! Note about directions: It's Days Road that crosses highway 39; don't waste time, as we did, looking for Days Cross Road.[Roger Sleight, 12/31/2014]
We just visited Gravity Hill and the kids loved it. We stopped at the bottom of the hill, turned off the van and put it in neutral. It was very quiet and eerie. Then all of a sudden the van started to creep up the hill and gain speed.
It was the best attraction on our way down to Florida. The kids will forever remember Gravity Hill.[Brent Christian, 12/18/2007]
Between Ft. Gaines and Georgetown, if you turn to the right onto a country road, there is a hill that you can roll up. Yes, ROLL UP! You can park you vehicle at the bottom of the hill, turn it off, put in neutral, and you will begin to roll up the hill and on and on for a few miles.[Roflmao44, 08/05/1998]
