People love geocaching for many different reasons. Some are drawn to it because of their love of discovery and solving puzzles, others by the warm geocaching community, and some love geocaching because of the creativity on display in unique hides. This week’s Geocache of the Week, Minions House (GC63FB8), is a dream come true for all geocachers who fall into that last category.
The navigation to this geocache is not too difficult, and you won’t have to spend much time searching around the final coordinates, but the cache’s unique container will make it a memorable experience.
The inspiration for this quirky cache comes from the cute creatures called Minions in the popular Despicable Me series of films. Minions are little creatures who have their own language and love to eat bananas. Their calling is to work as henchmen to evil masterminds and they often get into silly situations in their attempts to help their villainous bosses.
The cache, which is located on the Portuguese archipelago, Madeira, is a small wooden house that appears to be a sanctuary where Minions relax, hoping for a supervillain to stop by in need of their assistance. This hide is sure to be a hit for young and old alike. There is even a large Minion plushie in the wooden house, which geocachers can take pictures with.
According to the cache page, the location of this cache is only open to the public between 9 am and 7 pm, so you’ll have to make sure you arrive at the coordinates within that time frame. It might also be a good idea to bring along some bananas, just in case the Minions are hungry.
