Geocache Description:

GEOCACHE NOT AT ABOVE COORDINATES. The above coordinates take you to an entrance where we suggest you start your journey.

You will need to visit different locations inside Coral Ridge Mall to solve this puzzle and obtain the final cache coordinates. There is no need to enter any stores along your way.

We suggest starting your adventure at the Coral Ridge 10 Movie Theater and progressing through the puzzle in the same order as the questions (or vice-versa and begin near Sears and progress in reverse order). Each location can be found one after the other in this manor.

Coral Ridge Mallzzle

N41° AB.CDE W091° FG.HIJ

A - Above the Coral Ridge 10 Box Office you'll find a painting. What instrument do you see? Convert the name of the instrument to a number, then subtract 3. (i.e. 'Piccollo' converted to a number is 8. 'Flute' converted to a number is 5.)

B - Near (and above) the food court you will find a painting of a piece of cherry pie. How many cherries are on top of the piece of pie? Then subtract 2.

C - Further down the mall you'll see a painting near the ceiling of a guy in a Iowa Hawkeye hat throwing something. What is he throwing? Convert that item to a number then subtract 5.

D - Further down the mall you'll find another painting near the ceiling. This one shows a famous building. What is the name of the city where this building is located? Convert this city's name, then subtract 4. HINT: Walking from the last location ('C') you'll pass underneath this painting for 'D', you will have to look up and behind you to see it. It is not very far from 'C'.

E - Even further down the mall you'll find another painting near the ceiling with a bunch of hot air balloons. How many can you count? (Include all partial image's in your count) Then subtract 4.

F - What type of building (it's red) do you see in the painting above the entrance to Sears? Convert to a number, then subtract 1.

G - Above the children's play area (not to be confused with the Children's Museum) how many Hot Air Balloons and Suns do you see? Then add 3.

H - On a wall near the children's play area - and outside a "Teddy Bear Cave" - is a mural. How many bears can you count? (count them all even if you're unsure if it's a bear) Then subtract 10.

I - Above the children's play area, how many people do you see inside the hot air balloon basket?

J - Above the children's play area, how many clouds do you count?

The cache is a good sized lock-n-lock container located outside. It's bigger than a small, but smaller than a large.
