High-Tech Treasure Hunt Behind Downtown Disney Scare
ANAHEIM (CBS) — Shoppers and tourists were left jittery after a high-tech treasure hunt game temporarily disrupted business in Downtown Disney on Tuesday.
KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports a suspicious object near the ESPN Zone restaurant turned out to be harmless.
Sergeant Bob Dunn says the box located east of the restaurant turned out to be harmless: a geo-caching container, part of a scavenger hunt game.
Geo-caching is the relatively new practice of hiding an object, broadcasting the location of the object and then having people with GPS units find this object.
