How Obstacles are Made

Getting from a design plan to a fully fabricated commercial American Ninja Warrior facility like Ninja Lounge includes several stages involing 3D CAD blueprint sketching, materializing, and sketching prior to physical construction. All courses are held to the highest safety standards set forth by ASTM F1292-04 with an emphasis on durability and product life. In addition, through the use of the metal truss frame, obstacles are easily customizable and can fit a variety of ages and skill levels.

In the first stage, customers meet to discuss business objectives, time frame, budget, and constraints. Taking into account available floor space, target market groups, and types of obstacles, we are able to understand the needs of the customer.

The second stage is a rough design, where we create a two dimensional computer layout of the course including the suggested obstacles. Included is a description of each obstacles. The customer can then review the design and discuss the layout.

In the final phase, we will create a 3D model of the course using CAD software. The client can review and discuss the model in an online meeting and give final thoughts.

Structural Components

The Frame: The core foundation of the ninja warrior course is a custom sized truss frame. These are designed by a liscensed engineer to hold up to maximum structural safety. They are made from the same material and design as the course on television. Each standard frame is 8 feet wide x 20 feet long x 13 feet high and includes 1 to 2 obstacles.

Traverse PlateVersatility: In order to target a variety of skill levels and adapt obstacles to Ninja Warrior competitions, elements are designed to be easily adjustable. couplerCouplers (shown in the image to the left), are used to connect obstacles to the truss frame such that they can be slid forward and backward on the track. In addition, traverse boxes contain removable plates to enable obstacles to be varied in difficulty.

Mats from Ninja LoungeMats and Flooring: Included in Ninja Warrior courses is the necessary safety padding. Landing mats can be velcroed together and all metal columns are protected with truss pads as seen in the course to the left. This again ensures the course is as safe as possible.

Finished Product: Ninja Lounge is an extreme obstacle course and trampoline park facility in Miami. They have one of the largest indoor obstacle courses in the country and host a plethora of competitors. See their promo video below for a sample of our work:
