After a year of planning, local ‘Ninja Warrior’ fans can finally test out their skills.

The Tru Ninja adventure park on Mulgoa Road will officially open its doors on Wednesday, March 11.

Co-owner Michael Hicks told the Weekender that he and business partner Even Wardrope are excited to finally let people in.

“It has been a journey and we have been thrown some curve balls throughout the process, but Council has been great in the latter stages, so we are happy we are now ready,” he said.

“We have two great managers, Dean Masters and Jessie James, running it, so we just want to get the word out to the broader western Sydney community.”

Taking inspiration from the popular TV show, Mr Hicks said the park has more of an emphasis on entertainment.

“There are other parks around but they focus on the gym aspect more. We wanted fun for the whole family so we have it very bright coloured and obstacles that a range of people can use,” he said.

“Our obstacles are also interchangeable so once we have been set up for a while, we can keep it fresh and reinvent with new challenges.”

Mr Hicks said there is a lot on offer for every aspiring ninja to enjoy.

“We are open seven days a week from the morning until late and people can try the warped wall, jump into an air bag, try the rolling logs and the foam pits,” he said.

“We also have a mezzanine level to watch from, a café and will be offering birthday parties from April 28.

“Plus if people ‘like’ us on social media they could win a family pass.”
Down the line, Mr Hicks said they will be hoping to expand with even more options for attendees.

“We want to do mini ninja sessions for kids under five along with an after-school care program,” he said.

“We will also do corporate challenges for businesses and ninja night events which we are excited to be implementing.”
