Gold Hill, Oregon, has a roadside attraction with a series of interesting effects that sceptics describe as optical illusions but the attraction’s owners claim they are paranormal in original. Well they would wouldn’t they?

The locals say a gold laboratory office built there in 1904 slid from its foundations somewhere in the early 1910’s. It came to rest at an odd angle, because of this it looks like objects roll up hill, much like the Mystery Spot in California. Another effect is that two people can change their heights standing next to one another, but some of the investigators put this down to the backdrop and another clever illusion.

The TV show Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files certainly put the phenomena’s down to illusions. In Supernatural, Sam Winchester also mentions this in Season Three.

Either way it sounds like it’s a fun place to visit.
