About GPS Adventures Canada
GPS Adventures Canada, a traveling exhibit created in partnership between Groundspeak and Minotaur Mazes, prominently features Alberta’s Canadian Badlands, and is a smaller version of the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit currently touring North America. The educational exhibit will launch in Three Hills, Alberta in time for the 2011 Best of the Bad Mega Event (GC2GA1J) before embarking on a Canadian tour.
Attendees will learn about GPS through interactive science experiences in a 1,500 square foot indoor maze and an outdoor GPS training course. The maze will take visitors through three main rooms - Tools of Discovery, Modern Explorer, and Discovering the Canadian Badlands - each dedicated to interactive science learning.
After exploring the indoor maze, participants can move to the outdoor course and locate nearby geocaches using GPS units available at the exhibition venue.
Geocachers who log their attendance at the GPS Adventures Canada Maze will earn a unique icon for the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit Cache type.
