I would love to see a bubble level affixed to some surface. Or a glass of water to verify.

There's a place in SLC, UT that exhibits the same apparent phenomena. Until you think about it or have an inclinometer.

Funny this comes up now. On our recent trip to Florida from upstate NY, there were a couple of spots on rt 81 in PA when I thought the cruise or throttle was stuck on the bus. After I stopped trying to fix something that wasn't broke, I looked around and realized the northbound lane was going uphill. Therefore I was going downhill. Surrounding terrain created an optical illusion that was very convincing. Then I remembered going to a spot in PA when I was a kid and my Dad stopping at the bottom of what appeared to be a hill (antigravity hill) I think, with the old Pontiac and popup camper and it went (up) the hill. Real impressive when you are about 10 years old.

The "Mystery Houses" at touristy areas, (like strugius, sd, aka: Sturgis, SD), are man made illusions, designed and built to fool you, (and get your $$).
IMO, the natural ones are more interesting , (and free).
