Places On Earth Where Gravity Does Not Work

You are looking at a place that should not exist. You may think the laws of gravity apply everywhere on earth, but not in these places from a hill where cars roll upwards to a house in America where gravity doesn't work.

Number 1 Upside Down Waterfall

This waterfall is real. It's found in Chile, as you can see the water's not flowing down but upwards. It seems like this waterfall is defying the laws of physics. Is this magic? Well, the answer is less mysterious than you'd.

Think the water flows upwards because of incredibly strong winds coming from below this pushes the water in the opposite direction, making it look like the water flows upwards. Similar waterfalls have been seen in Australia and India. Another one of these can also be found in Hawaii, known as the Waipuhia falls.

All of these waterfalls are inverted, for the same reason, strong winds, but if you see one of these, then be very careful, you can actually be blown over by the immense pressure of this water.

Number 2 The Mystery Spot In Santa Cruz USA 

There's a very mysterious place where gravity does not work. This place was discovered by George Prizer in 1939. He was walking around this area when all of a sudden he felt dizzy. He then shook his compass and realized the arrow was going crazy, so he decided to buy the land and build a house on it.

He soon realized that the building defied gravity you could stand and bend at many different angles. It seems like you should fall over, but you simply don't. Water flows upwards in this house and spherical bulls roll upwards.

But what creates this mysterious spot? Well, some believed a magmatic crater under the house could be responsible, but as of yet we really don't know this place really does make you question what we think we know about physics. You can even lean forward to the 45-degree angle and not fall over. Maybe that's how Michael Jackson did it all those years. 

Number 3 The Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam is one of the biggest tourist attractions in all the USA, but one of the most amazing things about it is its apparent lack of gravity. If you stand on top of the dam and try and pour some water down it, it won't go down.

On the contrary, it will pour upwards. But how does the water fly upwards like this? Well, scientists believe it's because of the size of this massive construction.

Its gigantic size creates a powerful flow of air this pushes any objects away from its edges, but if you jump over the edge, would you fly well, unfortunately, not but light objects? It simply gets repelled by the very powerful airflow.

Number 4 The Magnetic Hill

You may think that it's impossible for a car to roll up a hill. Then go to New Brunswick Canada, and you can see the Magnetic Hill gravity seems to not work at all. All cars roll upward on this hill.

This was discovered in the 1930s when cars became popular in the area. The drivers were shocked when they stopped at the bottom of the hill but then began to roll upwards. It seems paranormal or magical, but there is an explanation.

Some say it's simply an illusion because of how the road was built. That's because slight inclines looked like rises, making people think their cars are rolling uphill, but for now, this is simply a theory. Do you think this road really is anti-gravity or is it all an illusion? 

Number 5 Mount Aragats

Mount Aragats can be found in Armenia. Every year thousands of tourists come from miles around to see this amazing anti-gravity mountain. If you stop your car at the foot of this mountain, it will begin to roll upwards. This happens even if a car's engine is turned off.

If that wasn't weird enough Mount Aragats river, also flows upwards and any hikers say it's much easier to walk uphill than downhill. The usual gravity force doesn't work at all in this mountain, so far the mountain has not been explained. There are many theories, but nothing has yet been confirmed.

Some say magnetic plates under the ground could cause these phenomena. While others say it's simply an illusion. You see the horizon line can't be seen around these mountains, giving the illusion of level ground.

Number 6 Jeju Island

Jeju is a South Korean Island, but on this Island, something very mysterious goes on. A road on the Island seems to totally defy gravity, bottles roll up this road and of course, so do cars.

Because of this many believed the Island could be cursed, while others say this is an illusion because of the surroundings it seems like the area is flat when really it's a decline.

Drivers get very scared when it seems like their cars are traveling uphill all by themselves. Many people come from South Korea and other countries to this Island. Just to see this one road, really is quite a confusing sight to see.

Number 7 The Oregon Vortex

It is located in Oregon USA. This hut defies gravity and was discovered in 1930, but it has a very chilling backstory.

It was built on ancient Native American burial grounds, leading many to believe. The place is haunted for centuries. Paranormal events have been reported here and that's not including the anti-gravity properties of this area.

You can lean at 45-degree angles and not fall flat on your face, bubble levels don't work here and balls roll upwards, swings won't even swing back and forth. Here only going one way, and if you pour some water from a bottle, it will pour upwards zero gravity and paranormal activity seems like a scary mix.

Number 8 The Golden Rock

It is located in Myanmar and is a rock that seems like it shouldn't exist. This massive rock seems to defy the laws of gravity.

The rock is 611 tons, but amazingly more than half of it hangs off a mountainside. Even when many people are pushing it and praying against it, it won't fall. It sits in a world-famous sight for Buddhist pilgrims, leading many to believe the rock could be a miracle.

Legend says it's held by one strand of Buddhist hair, but whether that's true or not, it's amazing. This rock has not fallen yet. The Rock has been here for hundreds of years, but I'd still be very scared to walk underneath it, just in case floating rocks have been seen in other places around the world. Many say this photo could simply be an illusion, while others maintain that no gravity works in this area. 

Number 9 The Cosmos Mystery Spot 

The cosmos Mystery Spot is where physics seems to not work. This place is found in South Dakota USA. You can lean at amazing angles and never fall. It's also very hard to walk downhill.

The entire house really messes with your mind, things roll upwards instead of downwards. Some believe that this cabin is paranormal, but really it's simply your brain getting confused. The cabin is built on a 20-degree tilt, but this is not noticeable when you're inside, leading to many people getting very disorientated and confused.

I think it's safe to say there's so much about the world we simply don't know. Maybe the laws of physics aren't as they seem it really does appear like in some of these places, gravity does not exist, but in other places seems paranormal or perhaps even magic.
