Have you ever wished Jack and Jill were able to fly on their quest up a hill to fetch a pail of water? Or have you ever wanted to fly like superman? But you’re aren’t born on Krypton nor have Hermione to whoosh you up with Wingardium Leviosar? Well, fret not guys as today we’ll be looking at 10 of the most unbelievable places here on earth where gravity doesn’t seem to work! You should stick with us till number one, it’s an enduring mystery to date!
Number 10: The Mystery Spot in Michigan
One of the coolest, yet strangest spots on earth is a place called the Mystery Spot on St. Ignace in Michigan. Yeah, we know; we made it sound a bit ironic there. But once you hear how amazing this place is, you might just want to bear with us here. Wouldn’t it be really cool to be able to bend yourself like the once King of Pop, Michael Jackson? Well, at the Mystery Spot, you can do that and a whole lot more. You can climb a wall without any rope and even tilt yourself at a slipping angle. Yet, you won’t fall. A tall person here would seem a little bit smaller when compared to their normal height in other places. In short, gravity appears to go a bit lenient on tourists at the Mystery Spot. But then, its secrets were locked away in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan until it was discovered in the ‘50s by a team of surveyors while exploring the area. But when scientists came into the matter, they said it’s a question of optical illusion.
Number 9: The Mystery Road in South Korea
Ask truck drivers out there how easy it is to drive uphill. We bet many would say it’s not for the faint-hearted. And if you look at things more closely, it’s common sense actually. But here at the mystery road on the Jeju Island of South Korea, you’d doubt even your most trusted instinct. On this road, objects left to roll on their own appear to move uphill rather than the usual downhill that we all expect, even though the road itself seems to stretch downhill. Cars, of course, are not left behind. Once you put the gears on neutral and step off the break, the next thing you’d notice is your car crawling uphill right in front of you while defying basic logic. But wait, before we go too far, let’s hear out what scientists have to say about this one. Well, as expected, they claim that this road is just another misplaced concept of an optical illusion due to the high surroundings. What we see is actually the complete opposite of what happens in the real sense. But just why do these guys love ruining all the fun?
Number 8: The Magnetic Hill in India
If you’re looking for a place to pique your interest and arouse your curiosity to no end, then pack your bags. It’s time to visit Magnetic Hill. This hill sits directly along the Leh National Highway in the Trans-Himalayan region of India. To the east, you’ll also find the famous Sindhu River that adds more to its beauty. But right at the entrance of the road is a signboard that reads, “The Phenomenon That Defies Gravity” and it’s not kidding! For every vehicle parked on a small part of this road, a speed of 20km/hr is gained even when the car engine is completely turned off. In simpler terms, it means that a car parked on this road would begin to move uphill all by itself. Not only that, its speed could increase up to a whopping 20 km/hr before it finally stops. Some say the road leads to heaven. But some experts, as always, were quick to disagree. Instead, they claim the cars are being pulled by the strong magnetic field in the area. In fact, pilots avoid this route to prevent, you know, forces beyond control.
Number 7: The Electric Brae
Don’t be surprised to see a ton of magical hills on this list. They’re one of the best examples of places where gravity seemingly doesn’t behave the way Isaac Newton, one of the masters of physics, suggested it would. So, in most cases, when people come across them unexpectedly, they often consider them as miracles. Some even classify them as evidence of glitch in the earth system. But generally, these hills are called gravity hills, and there are quite a number of them all over the globe. The Electric Bae located in the southern stretch of Dunure, not far from the city between Drumshrang and Knoweside in Scotland is another notable one of them. During the second world war, David Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, also came to visit this true wonder of nature. To experience what he saw, you’d also have to take a trip to this part of Scotland. Once there, stop in the layby and release your handbrakes. Just know that whatever oddity you experience is all optical illusion that’s far from magic.
