Agility York Ninja Warrior Course Review

Agility is an indoor fitness park on the outskirts of York which opened a couple of years ago. It has two excellent Ninja Warrior courses and my son loves to visit and challenge himself on their equipment.

We are big fans of the TV show Ninja Warrior and without the water, this is very similar to some of the obstacles from the show but on an easier scaled-down basis. Everything is very soft and as safe as possible.

Agility York is a new concept in sot play and indoor fitness for not just kids but adults as well. There are two Ninja courses at Agility. One is for children aged from 5 to 16 and the other is for older children and adults. The age for this used to be from 12 years, there is no information online to confirm that this is still the case.

You have to prebook on a timed session. If you are joining in with a session you must wear grip socks. We purchased ours online when we booked our tickets but if you’ve been to a trampoline park before you may already own some. They can also be purchased online on websites such as Amazon.

Everyone on the timed session is then given a safety briefing for a few minutes before you are taken over to the course where you will be given a run-through. These sessions are for children and their adults can not take part. Don’t worry if you think your child may struggle on some of the equipment as they have members of staff in various parts of the course waiting to help anyone that may need it.

You can choose to follow your kids around from outside of the course or you can go up some stairs to a balcony where you can cheer them on. My son wanted me to stay so I was one of just a few adults that followed around from the outside. You can’t always see them but there’s about 1/3 of the course where you can really cheer them on. If you think your kids will struggle without you you can book special family sessions although these aren’t always available.

There’s a good range of challenges for them on the course. These include stepping stones, a bridge between two walls, a big rope swing area, big walls they have to run and try to get over. Plus balance beams and more steps and rope swings.

They all have to go the same way round and the staff make sure they don’t all head off at once. With there being different ages and abilities some of the bigger kids don’t wait around and can sometimes get in the way of the smaller ones.

On the whole, though most of the kids wait nicely for each other to take their turn. The finale to each turn is The Wall. This is a mini-version just like on the TV show where they have to try and run up a wall. There are two different heights and I had great fun cheering the kids on.

Once they exit after each turn around the course they have the choice of going back around again or having a go on the drop slide. My son has braved this before but he hurt his elbow so hasn’t been on it since.

Next to this course is a similar course but for older children and adults. Some of the parents and teenagers that have kids on the younger session go on this while they are playing next to it. This looks really challenging and I have no plans to try it any time soon!

They also have Agility Mini which is a small soft play area next to the cafe for the under 2’s. This is an obstacle course aimed at pre-walkers and crawlers. They also have a sensory room with audio responsive LED lighting and padding.
