Uhm... didn't everyone already know how Magnetic Hill worked? If not, that's pretty sad.

Magnetic Hill is one of the saddest excuses for a tourist attraction ever! Better off going to a reptile farm, or to the town dump to throw rocks at the gulls.

I find the title of the thread very misleading.
That the Magnetic Hill is a simple optical illusion has been know pretty much forever - nothing new there.
I thought there were some new revelations related to the Magnetic Hill.

I'm not sure if anyone won an award to explain something that has been well known for many many years or if the award was for the implementation of this phenomena using four ramps.

Most people don't even bother. There are far better things to do at Magnetic Hill than sitting in a rolling car.
