Geocache Name:

MEGA HERTZ (GC5ENHH)

 

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

1.5/2.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Every year a group of Halloween aficionados hold and exciting—and terrifying—event in the UK. Along with each event comes a plethora of geocaches that are designed to make geocachers scream—and hand out their Favorite Points. Not only are these geocaches frightening, they’re also extremely well-built and designed. Since tomorrow is Halloween, it seemed only fitting to award one of these the Geocache of the Week, but also feature a few of the others. Although the event is over and some of the more expensive parts of the geocaches have been put away, geocachers are still able to make the find and earn their smileys at these locations. Check out a few of the other geocaches:

MEGAPHOBIA (GC5ENHV)

Maiden Northampton (GC5ENK)

Thriller! (GC5ENHQ)

 

What geocachers are saying:

“Fantastic caches and a great day out meeting LOADS of new friends,still aching but they are just reminders of a great day. TFTC.
Brilliant just brilliant” – siluspoker

“Oh my goodness, this one frightened the life out of us last year and it’s still the best cache ever!! We stood for ages just marvelling at it while others came up and signed the logs.” – Southalls

“Excellent caches once again. Great to see the return of MEGA HERTZ and the addition of Megaphobia was a real treat.  You guys have outdone yourselves again. Roll on next year.” – Pipesy
