How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The geocache is NOT at the posted coordinates. PLEASE read the entire description before attempting this geocache!

“This cache is part of an experiment that allows the use of Augmented Reality (AR) apps to find the cache. At the end of this experiment, Geocaching HQ will decide if this cache will be grandfathered or archived. Geocaching HQ reserves the right to archive this cache at any time if conditions change. If you have found this cache and would like to give feedback on your experience, please fill out this survey.”

To find this geocache, you will need a GPS and a smartphone. To play this Augmented Reality geocache you will need to download an app called "metaverse." It is available on both android and ios devices. You will need to download this app and sign in. There may be more than one app called metaverse, so make sure that you are downloading the correct app - the logo should be pink with a white "M" in the middle.

Once you have the app installed, you will need to go out to the posted coordinates. There is no geocache there, but this cartridge is location based, so it will not work unless you are within 40 meters of the posted coordinates. Go to the posted coordinates and launch the app. (make sure that you gave permission to use your location and your camera or the cartridge will not work) You should see a cartridge called "Shawshank Redemption" listed under nearby experiences, or you can type "Swawshank Redemption" in the search bar. Once you see the cartridge, go ahead and click on it. When you have the cartridge launched, you should see Andy Dufresne on your smartphone screen. He may not be directly in front of you, so if you don't see him, follow the instructions on your smartphone screen. You should be able to spot him. Once you see him, just follow the instructions until you get the final coordinates. Once you have the final coordinates, you will need to enter them into a GPS device.
