Team Ninja Warrior: College Madness' Ring of Fire

Team Ninja Warrior 2's Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the second obstacle on Team Ninja Warrior: College Madness, and then appeared again on Team Ninja Warrior 2.

The concept of this obstacle was similar to the Gliding Ring/Cannonball Drop, where competitors had to slide down a giant ring in an angled track, with the track having two notches as stoppers (one notch for Team Ninja Warrior: College Madness), where they had to raise the ring to move on.

Due to the obstacle being placed in a side-by-side course, it forced the competitors to quicken their pace to complete the obstacle. Some competitors went over the notches in one go, but others got stuck on the notches, which forced them to raise the ring. Even though its function was simple, it took out 28 competitors on Team Ninja Warrior 2, including Brent Steffensen, Neil Craver, Tremayne Dortch, Jamie Rahn, Lorin Ball, Geoff Britten, Daniel Gil, and Flip Rodriguez (who fell on the obstacle twice), which was due to not holding on to the ring long enough or failing the dismount.

Other Appearances

Ninja Warrior UK

Ninja Warrior UK 3's Ring Slider

Ninja Warrior UK 4's Ring Slider

The Ring of Fire appeared on Ninja Warrior UK 3, as the fifth obstacle during the semi-finals, and then as the seventh obstacle during the semi-finals on Ninja Warrior UK 4. However, the obstacle was called as the Ring Slider (not to be confused with the Ring Slider from SASUKE). Also, competitors needed to climb up a pole to reach the ring.

On Ninja Warrior UK 3, the obstacle eliminated the most number of competitors than any other obstacle during the semi-finals, mostly due to getting stuck at the second notch and spending too much time at the obstacle, resulting the grip gave out and fell.

Ninja Warrior Poland

Ninja Warrior Poland 2's Ring of Fire

In Ninja Warrior Poland 2, The Ring of Fire appeared as the second obstacle in Heat 2 and 6. It did not eliminate many participants. The track had only one stop between the notches, and then there was only one bump.

Ninja Warrior Poland 3's Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire then appeared in Ninja Warrior Poland 3 as a second obstacle, this time in Heat 1 and 4. The obstacle against women was modified; in contrast to the men's version, there is no longer a "trap" at the congress, instead there are two bumps. The obstacle eliminated, among others, the Polish singer, Piotr Kupicha, who was challenged to go to the program and show what he can do. Some of the other participants were eliminated from this obstacle for not letting go in time during the congress.

Ninja Warrior Germany

Ninja Warrior Germany 6's Spider Walk to Ring of Fire

On Ninja Warrior Germany 6, the Ring of Fire would be introduced as part of the Spider Walk in the Preliminary Heats. The obstacle would directly follow the Spider Walk with no rest.
