ENTON TWP, MI — Coaches and parents shouted out words of encouragement as children attempted to use their fingertips to try and maneuver across Tri County Ninja’s version of the cliffhanger.

“You’ve got to get those strong hands,” uttered someone in the crowd. “You’ve got to get those ninja hands.”

The obstacle is one of several for patrons at the new 7,500-square-foot business, located at 14283 North Fenton Road, to pull, jump, and run up that mimic those on the popular, long-running NBC reality show “American Ninja Warrior.”
