Ninja Warrior UK Adventure Park Guildford Review

Last summer we took the children to the Ninja Warrior UK Adventure Park in Guildford, Surrey, one of 18 Ninja Warrior sites across the country. With an 11 year old and 10 year old needing to burn some energy off, it ticked all the boxes for a fun morning out and a great choice if looking for indoor things to do on a weekend or school holiday.

Booking Ninja Warrior UK Adventure Park tickets online was straightforward, with discounts available for certain groups and times of the day. When ordering our tickets, we also bought some special hygiene socks that need to be worn on the inflatable section of the course.  Trainers are also advised for the main Ninja Warrior obstacles with no sandals/flip-flops allowed on the course.

The website also advised us to sign waivers for the course before we attended to save time when we arrived. This was easy to do and pretty standard for any sort of venue where physical activity takes place. We’re used to signing waivers when we go to trampoline parks and this is much the same.

We arrived twenty minutes before our one hour time slot so we could check in, get wrist bands and pick up the socks we ordered. We were then shown to an area where the walls were adorned with the house rules and we watched a short safety video about the venue and some of the obstacles and challenges inside. When our start time arrived the friendly staff members let the raring participants go.

LP and Little Man both chose to warm up on the inflatable section first. This was basically an enclosed obstacle run and almost soft-play aimed at teenagers. It included challenging obstacles that had to be ducked under, weaved around or jumped over!

There is also a section of the inflatable where you need to climb using handles and navigate your way across without touching the ground. At the end of the inflatable section is a giant mountain with numerous ways to scale the sides, before using the slide to come back to the ground. The inflatable section of the venue is more popular with the younger users, as the other part of the adventure park is aimed more at those 140cm and above.

No shoes are allowed on the inflatable and the special socks must be used and there’s storage for shoes available as well as lockers if you want to stow away a bag or any valuables.

Then the children moved on to the more grown up obstacles at the Ninja Warrior adventure park. Users need to put trainers on for this section before tackling versions of obstacles as seen on the television show!

The obstacles start off gentle enough with a cross jump off the floor area before tackling a static see-saw. The obstacles are all padded as is the floor area, should your little ninjas take a tumble.

You can choose a an easier or more challenging path to make your way towards the end of the main course. There are some higher hanging type of obstacles for the taller ninja or you can take the lower option of a swinging padded bridge section or if you’re feeling adventurous, you can take the mini-ring swingers instead.

Each obstacle is different and the aim is to make it across without touching the ground. All through the course are members of staff offering encouragement and tips on how to beat the course.

The end of the main obstacle course is The Wall. This is almost vertical and it comes in two sizes for you to conquer. The kids loved doing this in particular, giving them a real sense of achievement once they’d done it. It was then back to the start to see if you could tackle some of the harder elements or do everything quicker than your first time around.

Ninja Warrior Guildford also has a cafe that serves hot and cold drinks, along with a decently priced food menu. Parents can either kick back and relax, watching the action from the mezzanine floor or be on hand to help their mini-ninjas around the course. An hour on the course may not sound like long, but it was plenty of time to tire out the children for a lazy afternoon at home!
