Ninja Central, Orion Springfield
It used to be play cafés that dominated the kid scene in shopping centres, but in the Orion Shopping Centre in Springfield they’ve gone Ninja! Ninja Central on the ground floor is open every day except Mondays and Tuesdays, and the obstacles change every month to keep things fresh and exciting. The great thing about Ninja Central is that they offer Mini Ninjas for children from just walking to 4-years old (a 45-minute free play session every Wednesday morning, perfect for mums’ groups!) and a variety of passes for older kids from a single lap of the Ninja course to a full day pass.

Build your own Ninja Warrior course
If you’ve got the space, they’ve got the equipment! There are several businesses in Brisbane who can supply and install a variety of Ninja course equipment and materials. If your child is dedicated to practicing their Parkour skills, and money and space are no ‘obstacle’ (sorry!), a Google search will amaze you with what’s on offer.
Alternatively, little ones can have heaps of fun in your own backyard with a DIY obstacle course. A little imagination can turn household items and toys such as rope, baskets, and outdoor toys into a range of fun challenges. Take a look here for inspiration.
