Geocaching game causes Disneyland 3-hour lockdown
File under, "The terrorists have won!"
Disneyland shut down for three hours after anonymous well-wisher hides
'spiritual message of goodwill' scroll in tree and sparks security alert (Daily Mail)
A scroll containing a peaceful message sparked a three hour lock down at Disneyland after the bomb squad was called in to investigate the 'suspicious package'.
An anonymous well-wisher had hidden the 'spiritual message of goodwill' in a tree near the front gates of the Los Angeles theme park on Saturday just hours before it was spotted and reported as suspicious.
A similar security alert had closed the park last year when staff reported seeing a cylindrical object in Downtown Disney, which later turned out to be the hidden treasure in a game.
Police initially thought the item found on Saturday was part of the same game, a high tech adventure called geocaching in which people use gps to find containers filled with goodies.
