Former NHL star Brad May in new YTV competition series

YTVA new competition series featuring former NHL player Brad May is on its way to YTV.

Cache Craze will tap into the global craze of Geocaching – an emerging GPS-aided game where teams search for hidden caches.

The series will debut on Saturday, March 9 at 6pm.

In each episode of Cache Craze, family teams of two search for virtual caches that can only be unlocked after they climb, crawl and jump through over-the-top outdoor obstacles. Among the teams competing in the crazy challenges are NHL star and on-air sports analyst Brad May and his 13-year-old daughter, Samantha.

Climbing the towering masts of a tall ship to release pigeons, diving into barrels of tar, leaning out of helicopters to aim watermelon bombs and rowing across treacherous waters near Niagara Falls—those are just some of the Explorer Challenges that the show’s two-person, teen-led teams must complete in order to reveal the hidden locations of the caches to score points and avoid elimination. Only one team will emerge victorious, take home a cash prize and score the Cache Craze trophy.

Host and comedy star Ryan Horwood (Monster Warriors, Howie Do It), keeps the energy and laugh factor high by orchestrating the action and cheering the players on. The series takes place across a variety of unique locations such as a forest, an amusement park, an old heritage fort and a downtown city block.
