Many of us grew up on shows like Naruto and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We spent many lunchtimes practising leaping, swinging and climbing like our heroes in the school playground. But now we can truly test our skills at the new Ninja Warrior Adventure Park coming to Bristol this Christmas. Inspired by the hit ITV physical game show, the venue will combine action, adventure and, of course, active imagination.
It will feature a mix of adrenaline-fuelled TV show-style courses and inflatable runs. Such as the infamous Warped Wall – where the aim is to run as fast as possible up a steep wall to reach the top – and the new, energy-draining Mount Sasuke. Plus, there are plenty of other obstacles to climb, balance, jump and swing across. Featuring tunnels, battle towers and the ultimate assault course to race through.
The 43,000 sq ft indoor facility will open at Cribbs Causeway just in time for Christmas on December 20. Every age can get involved, however, even parents and grandparents have no excuse. But if they prefer, they can simply rest and watch from the Ninja Café. There’s even a Mini Ninja soft play area for children under three. But whether looking for something to do with kids, or just for yourself, there’s plenty of fun to be had.
“We’re so excited to be bringing a slice of brilliant, wholesome family entertainment to Bristol with the Ninja Warrior UK brand, which is loved by all age groups,” said Leisure TV Rights, who operate several Ninja Warrior UK venues. “Expect to tackle some obstacles very similar to the television show – including a chance to try and beat our very own Warped Wall!”
The first official Ninja Warrior in the UK opened in Stoke-on-Trent in 2018. It soon opened locations in Wigan, Cardiff, Gloucester, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Southampton, Leicester, Watford, Leeds, Chatham, Milton Keynes, Walsall, Swansea and Liverpool.
Sessions start at £13.50 per person or £4 for Mini Ninjas (0-3 years). While there are also party packages for big celebrations. To learn more about Ninja Warrior Adventure Park head here.
