Webmaster: Adventure Lab update

Lab Caches are an experimental cache type that do not require containers and can be located indoors.  Lab Caches have been associated with Mega Events until 2019, when Groundspeak offered caching organizations and a few hundred qualified geocachers to create Adventure Lab Caches.  The type is experimental and does not have a GC Code.  In order to find an Adventure Lab Cache, a specific app, called Adventure Lab, must be downloaded to a smart phone and used to navigate up to 10 "Labs".    Each correctly completed "Lab" counts as a find in your stats.

Adventure Lab Caches are currently available for a limited time only, typically six months.   Adventure Lab Caches are a variety of mystery cache intended for cache hiders to try out new innovations and ideas.   Adventure Lab Caches should definitely be considered temporary in nature, by the current definition.  Adventure Lab Caches do not appear on the Geocaching map.  The only automated way to locate them is through the app.

There is one more resource to find the locations and names of Adventure Labs.  It is a map of North America created and managed by DougyB:  North America Adventure Lab Map.
