Not to be confused with the Towers of Power.

The Power Tower is an obstacle, firstly introduced on American Ninja Warrior 11.

In essence, the Power Tower consisted of a side-by-side obstacle course with several parts, and was used at the end of city qualifiers and city finals rounds in each city. The top 2 overall competitors would compete head-to-head on this obstacle, with the winning competitor would receive the Speed Pass (during city qualifiers round) or Safety Pass (during city finals round).

City Qualifiers

During city qualifiers round, the Power Tower worked as followed:

  • First, competitors must climb up a giant stair to reach the top.
  • Then, they must grab an arch-shaped bar and use their hands and upper-body strength to get across until they could reach a straight pole.
  • After that, they must slide down the pole and walk/run across a swinging beam to reach the other straight pole (in a similar fashion to the third part of the Burandou, which was used in the Second Stage from KUNOICHI 6 to KUNOICHI 8).
  • From there, they must climb up the pole and reach a bar at the top.
  • Then, they must make an 8-foot laché to reach the next bars in front of them.
  • Finally, they must make the dismount to the landing platform and hit the buzzer.
  • The first competitor to hit the buzzer would receive the Speed Pass, meaning he/she would automatically advance to Las Vegas national finals.
  • If the competitors fell on any part of the Power Tower, they were allowed to continue their run.

City Finals

During city finals round, the Power Tower worked as followed:

  • First, competitors must grab a rope and use it to reach the first square handle (this feature was not in use during Los Angeles finals, meaning competitors would start by standing at the small platform).
  • Then, competitors must work their way across 7 hanging square handles.
  • From there, they must grab and work their way across 4 hanging cones (similar to the ones used on the Spikes into Cargo and Minefield).
  • After that, they must grab and work their way across 2 tilting ladders (similar to the Double Tilt Ladder), each was attached to bungee cords at the top.
  • Finally, they must make the dismount to the landing platform and hit the buzzer.
  • The first competitor to hit the buzzer would receive the Safety Pass, meaning if he/she failed to complete either Stage One or Stage Two during Las Vegas national finals, he/she was allowed to reattempt it once. However, if he/she could complete both stages, his/her Safety Pass would be voided (it could not be rolled over to the next season).
