Run, Jump & Climb! The Best Places to Take Your Junior Ninja Warrior


photo: Stacey Blackstone

Your kid loves to run, jump, and climb. She loves to hang upside down and she accepts any challenge that comes her way. Sounds like you’ve got a Junior Ninja Warrior at home! Following the fitness trend and popular TV show American Ninja Warrior, kid-friendly facilities are popping up all over DFW, and each one is filled with all the wacky obstacles your kid can desire.

To compete and play on a Junior Ninja Warrior course means a child’s strength and endurance —both mentally and physically—will be challenged. This type of training is a self-esteem boost for even the youngest child. After a morning at Obstacle Warrior Kids, my six-year-old said over and over, “Mom, did you see me climb that wall?! I didn’t know I could do that!” 

Whether you choose to go on a day when the weather doesn’t agree with the need to get little bodies moving, or just because your kid loves a good challenge, these awesome play spaces give active kiddos a spot all their own. Read on to discover a place near you! 

Psst!  Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes. Kids wearing inappropriate footgear will not be allowed to enter the course.


Where to Find a Junior Ninja Warrior Course

Obstacle Warrior Kids
A special place created specifically with ninja kids in mind, Obstacle Warrior Kids has two locations in DFW. While the Dallas location doesn’t have a separate spot for little kiddos, there’s plenty of easy challenges for your tiniest ninjas. The McKinney location DOES have a spot just for lil’ ninjas, and a separate course for junior ninjas. If you are worried about not having enough time to enjoy the space, don’t be. Even your hard-playing kiddo will be wiped after an hour or so.
