The Lowell Riddler is hiding medallions in the City of Lowell and offering area residents the chance to win a prize of local gift cards. Look for a new clue or riddle each Saturday!
Jason Wasciuk and his son Evan found the first medallion left by the Lowell Riddler a little more than 24 hours after the first clue was revealed. One of their favorite books is Ready Player One where riddles are solved to win a prize. “The idea of solving a riddle was especially intriguing to us. As we read the clues and started brainstorming we became more excited and motivated to look.” says Wasciuk. “Plus it was a good excuse to get outside and do something.”
The pair found the medallion on their first time out looking for it. “Reminiscing a thought” tipped them off to the location at Englehardt Library. They thought the riddle was well worded without being too hard. It took them some careful looking and a little luck to find it.
Here’s what The Lowell Riddler sent us when announcing the winner and the answers behind the riddle:
