The Best Ninja Warrior Playgrounds in Brisbane
With the screening of ‘Australian Ninja Warrior’, there has been a rapid rise in children (and adults) leaping, scurrying, climbing and swinging in the lounge room, backyard and playgrounds. If you want your Brisbane Kid to develop their ‘ninja’ skills, then head to one of the best ninja warrior playgrounds in Brisbane.
In this article you will find:
- Purpose-built ninja warrior courses in Brisbane
- Ninja playgrounds
- Parks with ninja or parkour features.
Note: Some ninja courses are designed for older kids and, as such, caution should be exercised when younger children are using those facilities. Equally some of the playgrounds in Brisbane with ninja warrior features are also playgrounds frequented by younger kids, so the caution will need to apply both ways. Be courteous and most importantly be safe!
Recognised as Brisbane’s first free outdoor ninja warrior course, Guyatt Park contains 11 obstacles. As an added incentive, there is a QR code available to time your race and compare it to others who have completed the course. Ninjas will need to balance their way along the hanging plank, climb across the cargo net, swing on the downhill monkey bars, beat the wall, complete the Field of Rings and climb through the Pole Forrest. The main objective of any challenge is to complete the obstacle without touching the ground.
11 ninja obstacles, a playground featuring a climbing wall, fort and flying fox, picnic tables, BBQs and toilets
