Kids (and adults) that strive to be the next American Ninja Warrior will need to check out the Ninja Park in Schaumburg. Although officially called the Challenge Course at Meineke Park, this ninja course is sure to be loved by your active kids (and adults!)

Highlights of the Ninja Park in Schaumburg:

Obstacle Course

Check out this ninja park in Schaumburg's Meineke Park perfect for those that want to practice their skills on the obstacle course.

After parking, the kids beelined straight to the obstacle course. It was our second time here, and I’ve found that it’s definitely much more enjoyable with older kids (10, 8, and 6) though I don’t doubt little ones will have a blast as well!  What’s even cooler is that we could time ourselves.There’s climbing and crawling and jumping. Perfect for any active kid and adult!  But if you’re like my kids, they just found one thing that they loved and kept trying it again and again.

Playground fun

There are two different playgrounds – one for the younger set and one for those a little bit older. The playground area has been completely renovated with soft grass turf, new equipment, many we’ve never seen before. Tons of fun!

 

 

Tips:

  • For a fun treat, try Umbrella Tea House for bubble tea and milk shakes. Such a cute vibe!
