Magnetic Hill Park, Moncton

3.7
Check out the gravity hill optical illusion at Magnetic Hill Park. Discovered in 1931, the Moncton hill area became a popular tourist attraction where people flocked to see the mysterious illusion for themselves. For a small fee, you can drive your car to the spot at the bottom of the hill and put it in neutral, at which point it will seemingly begin to roll backwards, uphill. The area also features a zoo and a water park. Make Magnetic Hill Park a part of your Moncton vacation plans using our Moncton trip planner.

Where to stay in Moncton

The center of the city remains the most popular place to stay, with the appropriately named Main Street offering the best selection of hotels. Using this area as your base, you'll be just a stone's throw from the water, the pleasant Riverfront Park, and the city's main train station. For a more budget-friendly option, look to the motels a few blocks back from the water, along St. George Street. If you're just passing through, consider staying at one of the chain hotels near the airport, to the east of the city.
