The âhauntedâ road and gravity hill on the west side of El Paso has been a popular urban legend in Sun City, Texas for decades.
Supposedly, a section of the street is said to be haunted by the ghosts of a mother and her grandchildren tragically killed once upon a time, and whose only reason not to cross is to help motorists avoid the same fate. .
Another version is that the horrible wreckage was that of a school bus and that the spirits pushing the vehicles are those of the dead children, but their intention is not so benevolent.
These spirits do not drive cars to safety, their intention is to drive passengers to death.
Whether it’s the first or second narrated version, or a completely different version, they all end the same: to experience the paranormal lifters for yourself, head over to Thunderbird Drive and turn on your car at a standstill towards Mesa between Twin Hills and Singing Hills.
You will soon feel your vehicle moving, pushed, they say, by these long-gone souls. It sounds exciting and terrifying at the same time. Except that is not true.
Gravity Hill Bunk Demystified
A few years ago one of the local news stations looked into the matter and found out that there were no ghostly events.
Oh you will feel the car slowly backing up uphill, but that’s not science, not ghosts.
I remember they spoke to a physics professor at UTEP who said that this particular stretch of road has an imperceptible slope, and because the mountain is blocking the horizon, the perception of people is that they are going backwards. as the car actually descends.
In other words, it is an illusion.
But what about handprints?
Legend also goes that if you cover the back of your car with baby powder, when it stops moving and you jump up and check that you will find ghostly handprints left behind.
More likely, what you have discovered are the ghosts in your palm prints from the last time you closed the safe.
Hill of gravity.
It’s a good story, but it’s not ghosts growing. It is gravity pull.
