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 were currently available for a limited time only, typically six months, but this limitation seems to be extending indefinitely.   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.
