For the countless kids that have watched American Ninja Warrior and thought to themselves, “I could totally do that!,” a new experience coming to Chesterfield is sure to be a dream come true.
Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis will offer ninjas-in-training 10,000-square-feet of obstacles, including those from the NBC show American Ninja Warrior. The obstacles, which were built by the same organization that constructs obstacles for the television show, will include the jumping spider, salmon ladder and a four-level warped wall ranging from 8 to 14 feet. The facility will offer kids’ obstacle course training classes, birthday parties, adult fitness classes and open gym.
Kirsti Pratt, who competed on three seasons of American Ninja Warrior, is general manager of the new location. Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis will open to the public with a grand opening celebration Friday, Nov. 2, from 4-7 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m.-noon. The event will include open gym, giveaways and an opportunity to watch American Ninja Warrior competitors run obstacles.
Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis is only the fourth location in the country, and the first outside the Chicago area. Other locations are expected to be announced in 2019. Ultimate Ninjas St. Louis is located at 140 Long Rd., Suite 130, Chesterfield, MO.
