Adventure through State Parks
Up your adventure at State Parks
This summer you can add a little adventure to your State Park visit with a simple app. Adventure Lab is a free location-based digital treasure hunt for all ages. The app is designed similar to existing geocaching activities, and will guide you throughout 10 Washington state parks in Island county as you solve questions using physical features within the landscape. With this new kind of interactive experience, you can safely discover the world around you while touching only your mobile phone.
How do I participate?
All you need to do to participate is download the app onto your phone! Once in the app, you simply need to scroll down the lists of parks to find the one you’re visiting. Signing up is simple. You can create an account for free in just a matter of minutes. The app then guides you through the process of finding clues, solving puzzles and completing Adventures one location at a time.
These Adventures are a great way for you and your family to experience each participating park. There is no time limit, and you can come back on another day to finish the experience if your visit is cut short. Which park will you adventure through first this summer?
