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!
The second riddle from The Lowell Riddler was a tough one, with no one finding the medallion using the first clue alone. However, within hours of the second clue being published, Kurt and Lisa Schenk from Lowell found success.
“The first set of clues really had us stumped,” Lisa says. “We went out several times with no luck.”
The second clue, with its reference to “danger,” took the couple back to the dam. While they started on the south side of Main Street, they quickly realized that the holes in the cement wall didn’t match the clues. A quick count of the openings to the north, though, revealed the secret location of the medallion, which was hanging over the river from the 21st opening.
Here’s what The Lowell Riddler sent us when announcing the winner and the answers behind the riddle:
Kurt and Lisa Schenk from Ada!
