A CHALLENGING water obstacle course inspired by a hit TV show has opened in the area.

The first ever Ninja Warrior aqua park course opened last Friday at Liquid Leisure in Datchet. The course is based upon the challenges participants face in ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK programme, in which challengers attempt to overcome a series of gruelling obstacles in the shortest time.

Now, residents can have a crack at the challenge in teams of two, racing against each other, and the clock. Obstacles include floating steps, hills, hanging bars, a balance beam, and a log run.

Ticket prices for the course start at £18. For full booking details, see www.liquidleisure.com.
