Found this funny 50's brochure today for Phantom Acres Mystery Spot, a midwest roadside Americana tourist destination which was originally located near Bagnell Dam in Lake of the Ozarks, MO. On the countless drives to the Ozarks from STL as a kid back in the day, we always knew we were getting close to the lake when we'd start seeing the "?" billboards along the highway. I have a few memories of this place (and the attractions that surrounded it), but I also think they kind of get confused with the old Tiltmore Hotel at Six Flags (RIP.) Anyway, read the brochure pages below to learn of the gravity / perspective / weight / height defying mysteries (among others) that lay in wait for yon weary traveller at Phantom Acres. Can water and balls really run uphill? Confess your bafflement! Can you really stand at a 45 degree angle with no trouble at all? Utter your confusion! Is there some sort of substance in the ground that puts everything in the vicinity off kilter? Is it supernatural? Is it SATAN? UFOS? What? What?! WHAT??!!! According to the internet, like most things on the Bagnell Dam strip, Phantom Acres is long gone and probably replaced with a biker bar or something... who knows, I haven't been down there in years.
