Magnetic Hill South Australia promised to be a little bit weird. Up to now, my discovery of the Daleks of Khancoban in a remote Snowy Mountains hideaway had been the pinnacle of my paranormal participation in the world of real-life Australian sci-fi.
Now, the sign in front of me detailed a strange and bizarre extrasensory experience. It was clearly pushing for a place in the paranormal pantheon. But it also raised a few questions.
Would we be able to stop the Magnetic Hill tractor beam from sucking the car off the face of the earth? And maybe even into some interplanetary vortex?
Or at the very least, off the edge of the hill?
Which way would a hip-replacement recipient roll?
And … perhaps most importantly – what WAS our car really made of?
Ready to Roll
Putting aside the real possibility of being beamed into another dimension, we followed the instructions carefully.
In the interests of full disclosure I offer the following disclaimers:
Pilchard SWEARS he didn’t touch any of the car controls
The angle of the shot doesn’t fully capture the slight incline behind the car
Out of the force field the car behaved quite differently
The tremor visible on the footage is caused by either the magnetic force field OR the excitement of this extraordinary experiment …
The resulting video quality may mean some features of this exciting moment have been lost forever …
Just between us, my first thought was that the car must really be made of plastic. I was clearly standing at the wrong angle to see what was really happening.
So I shifted around the other side. Yes, definitely better.
The Mystery of Magnetic Hill
SO … is Magnetic Hill South Australia an elaborate prank? A real touch of the Paranormal? Or is the explanation a little more prosaic? YOU decide!!
