Get to Junior Ninja Academy on time! Pass 3 challenges with your intellect and stamina and win the limited certificate

If your kids would like to transform into a ninja for the day you’re in luck! From today onwards until 20thAugust, spend over $200 on a single day and you’ll be entitled to reserve and enroll in the Junior Ninja Academy,where they’ll be tested and challenged in basic training games. The classes are made up with 3 sessions, each an hour with 20 available spaces. The mini ninjas will have to beat all challenges consecutively in order to win the limited certificate, becoming the first graduates of Junior Ninja Academy.

 

You can’t enroll unless you register, therefore acquiring the ninja handbook is a must for documenting your progress. Keep it till the end if you want your certificate.

 

Challenge 1: Shuriken Throwing (Difficulty level★★★☆☆)

Throwing shurikens is a must for any qualified ninjas, therefore it’s essential to practice with paper shurikens before taking the test. Head into Junior Ninja Academy’s specially training forest, and aim at the designated areas of the trees. The more precise you are, the more scores you earn. This is a test for challenging your patience and preciseness.

 

Challenge 2: Thrilling Archery (Difficulty level★★☆☆☆)

Another commonly used ninja skill is archery. Ninjas will have to use specially made bows, and aim at the target. Breathe in, aim and steady in order to achieve greatness and hitting your target. However, be careful not to hit the three main characters lurking in the firing zone. A thrilling game, this is a stern test for your hand-eye coordination!

 

Challenge 3: Instant Move Obstacle (Difficulty level★★★★★)

In order to become an excellent ninja, a level of fitness is a must. The last challenge tests ninjas their reactions and speed. In order to escape from the enemy, you must be as nimble as a cat. In this obstacle training, you’ll have to conquer the 3-metre rope barrier, and jump through a tire maze to reach the finish line. Complete the most difficult challenge of them all by utilizing both upper and lower limbs, as well as training your coordination and balance. Once you’ve completed the course, your certificate awaits.

 

After conquering the journey, it’s graduation time! There will be a photo ceremony for this momentous occasion. Gold Coast Piazza has prepared Ninja Rantaro costumes for those who are successful, and of course, the exclusivecertificate. Be the first graduates of Junior Ninja Academy!
