[SPOILERS] “Home in Hong Kong” and “A Puzzling Quest” Solutions

We hope you loved the first couple of puzzles from our student writers this season – we certainly did!

The answer to Natalie Tsang’s puzzle, “Home In Hong Kong,” was THE PEAK. [Download Solution Walkthrough]

Natalie adds this personal note: My family comes from Hong Kong, China, but growing up as an Asian American, I did feel disconnected from my identity. Last year, I had the chance to live in Hong Kong for three months. The Peak holds a special place in my heart as it was the first place I visited during my trip there, and it symbolizes an acceptance and understanding of my Asian American identity to me.

The answer to Clayton Hull’s puzzle, “A Puzzling Quest,” was DIAGON ALLEY. [Download Solution Walkthrough]

Clayton says: Everything in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios from the music, to the brick roads, to the giant dragon sitting on top of Gringotts came together to make it feel like I stepped into a magical world! It was then that I discovered my love for theme parks. Diagon Alley is meaningful to me because it inspired my dream to become an imagineer for Disney Theme Parks.
