American Ninja Warrior Adventure Park to Open in the U.S.
UNIVERSAL CITY, CA – From Air Park USA, a groundbreaking new obstacle course based on the hit NBC show, American Ninja Warrior, challenges participants of all ages and abilities to test their own ninja skills and is coming to Santa Ana, Calif. Inspired by the popular TV show, the 17,000 sq. ft. park is set to open at MainPlace Mall early July. This one-of-a-kind adventure park experience includes truss obstacles such as Monkey Swings, Spider Walls, Tilting Logs, Floating Bridges, and of course the famous Warped Wall. In addition to the truss obstacles, there will also be a 10,000-sq.-ft. inflatable obstacle course. The revolutionary adventure park will combine fitness and fun, providing participants an opportunity to master their inner ninja.
Designed first and foremost with optimal safety in mind, each American Ninja Warrior course is graded for difficulty. Air Park USA will take this experience to the next level in family entertainment, offering the ability for participants to compete against each other and themselves to achieve their best times. Participants will be able to level up and achieve goals they set through repeat visits to the adventure park. The venue will offer birthday party packages, corporate events and community fundraising opportunities.
Adrian Griffin, CEO of American Ninja Warrior Adventure Parks, a division of Air Park USA, said: “We are bringing the hit television show to main street USA. You won’t have to be a top-level athlete to participate, which allows fans of all ages to engage in the fun!”
Michael Silver, President, Global Business Development for Universal Parks & Resorts, said: “The incredible obstacles that have inspired such awe and admiration on American Ninja Warrior for the past 13 years will soon be available to its millions of fans. Anyone who has dreamed of surmounting Mount Midoriyama will now be able to do so. While the obstacles will be scaled down from the television course, the experience will be just as thrilling. We thank Air Park USA for enabling fans to become American Ninja Warriors.”
“Bringing the first American Ninja Warrior Adventure Park in the U.S. to MainPlace Mall shakes up the traditional shopping experience with a dose of adrenalin,” said Centennial Vice President of Property Management Jonathan Maher. “Adding this exciting new top-of-the-line entertainment venue is a perfect example of a leasing strategy focused on creative first-to-market concepts that connect with the community in new and meaningful ways.”
