Although this is not a major attraction like Disney or the Mild to Wild Airboat Tours, this was a fun side attraction. I'm glad that I got to experience it. It boogles my mind that our car moved without the engine running. It just started...More

The kids and adults enjoy this ride - going backwards in your car while just sitting there.

the first time we found Spook Hill it was an interesting and fun time. We now try to take other people there. I am so amazed of the number of people who live here that have never been there.
