Town of Riverview / SUNFEST Geocaching Challenge

Overview

Cache Up NB is pleased to share a newer outdoor geocaching activity that we hope will connect you and your family to Riverview's amazing outdoor green spaces during SUNFEST! They have created a unique “Adventure Lab” called "Riverview Outdoor Adventures" that will teach you more about the community's parks, trails and open green spaces. Complete the Adventure Lab to earn a limited edition Riverview SUNFEST 2022 Geocoin. This year's design is inspired by the bandstand, located in Caseley Park. 

What’s Adventure Lab?

Geocaching Adventure Lab is a newer platform that allows you to create, play, and share location-based experiences. The Adventure Lab app guides players through the process of finding clues, solving puzzles, and completing Adventures, one location at a time.

How do I get started?

  1. Grab your electronic device with cell service (and be sure to turn location services ON).

  2. Download the Adventure Lab app (available for iPhone and Android).

  3. Create a free account/profile.

  4. Open the app and search for local tours. You can then read the description, location, and comments on the activity log.

  5. Once you have arrived at the first location of the tour, click the “start” tab on the title screen your chosen adventure. The compass icon in the top-right corner of the screen will point you in the direction of the first/next point of interest on the tour. The cool thing about using GPS is that the location you are trying to find is shown on the screen and the metres will actually “count down” to tell you if you are moving in the right direction. When you get to within 5 m of the “location,” tap your screen and the interpretive stop information will come up.
