Magnetic Hill

Drive to the bottom of this world-famous hill, take your foot off the brake and be prepared to be amazed. Your car will roll uphill, even as your brain is telling you it's simply not possible! And it doesn’t just work on cars. Vans, trucks and even tour buses roll upward in total defiance of natural law.

Stories about this wondrous place have been around since the early 1800s. Magnetic Hill has been puzzling tourists for decades. This attraction is a completely natural phenomenon - unique to this area. Is it magnetic or is it magic? You decide.

When you’re finished on the hill, check out the Magnetic Hill Zoo, the largest zoo in Atlantic Canada. There are more than 400 animals, representing over 90 different species. Check out the African lions, Arctic wolves, Burmese pythons, cotton-top Tamarins, or how about a South American tarantula?

Browse the shops at Wharf Village and take a break in the restaurant. Take a ride on the Magnetic Hill Railroad. Then head up to another hill, the Magic Mountain Water Theme Park, for a cool ride on a waterslide.
