When: Mon., May 8 2017
A full-blown fan fest is set to accompany the Cleveland taping of American Ninja Warrior that takes place at Public Square today and tomorrow from 2 to 8 p.m. In the show, contestants attempt to complete an insane obstacle course in order to win a boatload of cash. But for those who can't catch the show taping (there are only so many seats), there are Ninja Warrior-themed thrills galore set up next to the actual course for families to enjoy. Expect to see things like an inflatable course — just like the ninjas use, but smaller — as well as a Spartan Race challenge. NBC will also be touting its other summer programming during the event, including photo ops with one of the big red chairs from The Voice and the judges table from America’s Got Talent. Food trucks will also be on hand. The first-time fan fest is free. (Laura Morrison) on-camera-audiences.com/shows/American_Ninja_Warrior. During the whole Ninja Warrior takeover, traffic will route a little different in Public Square. Take a look below: ninja-warrior-traffic-plan.jpg The ninth season of American Ninja Warrior premieres on NBC on Monday, June 12. But the Cleveland episodes won't air until later. Audience seats are free, but tickets are required. Go here for more wait list information.
