Ninja parks are the newest craze to hit the UK and there’s no wonder why they’re rapidly becoming so popular. If you’ve ever felt the urge to unleash your inner ninja, then a ninja park is the perfect place to do so.

What Are Ninja Parks?

No, it’s not a place for ancient Japanese mercenaries to meet up and play a game of footie in. A ninja park is, in fact, an indoor leisure area for people looking for a way to practice their acrobatic skills. Featuring a wide range of obstacles to climb, jump and lunge over, ninja parks are fully equipped with everything one needs to become the ultimate modern-day ninja. You don’t get play with katanas or throwing stars, but you do get to scramble over rope swings, scale climbing walls and dive into foam pits! Foam is our business here at GB Foam and we’re always thrilled to see the new and exciting ways in which foam is being used.

Where Did Ninja Parks Come From?

As many whacky ideas do, the ninja park craze started out in America. It was most likely inspired by the hit American TV show American Ninja Warrior (which derived from the Japanese TV show Sasuke). If you’ve never watched American Ninja Warrior, the idea behind it is simple. Essentially, contestants compete against each other in order to become the ultimate ninja warrior. This is achieved by completing a complex obstacle course, requiring not only superior physical strength but also balance and speed. Whoever completes the obstacle course in the fastest time is declared the winner.

Now, thanks to the rise of ninja parks, anyone can practice their ninja skills. You don’t have to be the fastest or strongest it’s simply a way to stay active and have fun at the same time.

Where Can I Find UK Ninja Parks?

Currently, there are only a few ninja parks open in the UK. No need to fret, as more and more business owners are turning to this new and exciting idea every day. Many UK trampoline parks are beginning to develop their own ninja courses for visitors to enjoy. So if you’re looking to practice your ninja skills, have a look online to find your nearest park.

Total Ninja in Manchester has recently gained attention in the media, claiming to be the world’s largest ninja park. So if you’re in the area and fancy getting your ninja on, make sure to pay them a visit.
