Check out the gravity hill optical illusion at Magnetic Hill Park. Discovered in 1931, the Moncton hill area became a popular tourist attraction where people flocked to see the mysterious illusion for themselves. For a small fee, you can drive your car to the spot at the bottom of the hill and put it in neutral, at which point it will seemingly begin to roll backwards, uphill. The area also features a zoo and a water park. Make Magnetic Hill Park a part of your Moncton vacation plans using our Moncton trip planner.

  • Finally on my fourth trip to Moncton my husband took me here. Simple pleasures! Parked and watched the car roll "uphill". The illusion is really good. A tip - reverse to the spot so the car is going.....  more »
  • This is just so much fun. We dropped by because we had both been there when we were young. It was a lot of fun for 2 older ladies too! It's still amazing  more »
