  1. Yes its true. A few years ago back in 2010 my mom, my boyfriend, my neice & myself came at night just go see what would happen & we put baby powder on the front part of my moms car & after we put the car in neutral the car was being pushed up the hill & we got out after & found hand prints. But about the story behind it I heard different. I heard a school bus filled with children crashed & the little kids are pushing you up. The hand prints we found were little & I still have the picture.

  2. I went here a week ago and have to say this place is a bust. The affect of the “gravity hill” is just a play on your brain/eyes from the way the road is sloped/ the environment and trees all around. Nothing happened though and I checked my car and no handprints.

  3. It is most definitely a bust… Saw it debunked on t.v. The story is one of a schoolbus filled with children so on so forth, yada yada yada….. It is aan illusion. You are actually rolling back down hill. When you go be sure to bring a level with you and you will see what I’m talking about. As for those who claim to have found handprints on their vehicle, well… No need to point out the obvious, lqtm.
