Groundspeak recently updated and renamed Lab caches and it has opened a new chapter in geocaching. The concept of an Adventure has been combined with Lab caches. You can find more information here. A typical Adventure lab will consist of 5 or 10 individual lab caches similar to MGS' Antietam Adventure at the Antietam National Battlefield. The old website has been closed to help prevent armchair logging and you can no longer download GPX files. Everything will be accomplished in new smartphone app called "Adventure lab".

In order to help test out the product and build more Adventure labs, Groundspeak selected a number of geocaching organizations and 250 selected geocachers around the world to build-out the number of Adventure labs. Both MGS and NoVAGO were selected along with lpaulriddle (I think that L might stand for lucky!). You can now find the MGS offering on Historical Women of Maryland at 10 locations around the state, the NoVAGO offering at the USMC Museum in Northern Virginia and lpaulriddle's creation in Ellicott City. Both NoVAGO and lpaulriddle's offerings include associated mystery caches so you can get a more traditional geocaching experience too! If you are interested, and I imagine you would be, download the app, login with your geocaching credentials and find some lab caches! Once you login, a list of available Adventure labs will be displayed ordered from nearest to farthest. To get started, make a selection and navigate to it, read the question, enter the answer and you will have found a lab cache!
