American Ninja Warrior has taken the country by storm-- and especially here in southeast Minnesota, thanks to our own local Ninjas like Roo Yori. So if your kids want to try to conquer their own Ninja-like course, check out this new playground.

It just opened in Shapfer Park, located in the Twin Cities, off Highway-55 in Golden Valley. (Google Maps says it'll take you about an hour and 30 minutes to get there from Rochester.) And, according to the city of Golden Valley, it'll let your kids channel their own Ninja Warrior!

The course is similar to what we're used to seeing on the show-- just not quite as difficult. So while there probably won't be a big-time Salmon Ladder or Warped Wall, there are still a lot of other cool features to the new course.

"The fitness challenge course, designed for ages 13 and up, includes obstacles that participants navigate over, under, around, and through as they race against the clock. The all-inclusive play structure is designed to meet the needs of kids and families of all ability levels," the city's website says.
