American Ninja Warrior 7's Tire Swing in Orlando

Tire Swing is an obstacle first introduced as the fourth obstacle in American Ninja Warrior 7 in Orlando.

It consisted of a mini trampoline, a suspended pole, and three suspended tire-shaped circles.

Competitors must use the mini trampoline to reach the pole. From there, competitors must use their upper-body to navigate the tires. The first tire would swing freely, the second would tilt in all directions with weight on it, and the last one would tip backward. The top of the third tire was covered with a cap, so the competitors must grab the inside from underneath. Once at the third tire, they must swing to the landing platform to advance.

During Orlando qualifiers, the obstacle ended the runs of several competitors who attempted it such as Emily Durham, Jonathan Ruiz, William Brown and Stephen France. Most competitors were unable to firmly grip the second tire, and as such came up short when making the transitions. During Orlando finals, it claimed Jon Alexis Jr. and Chad Hohn as its two victims.

Australian Ninja Warrior's Tyre Swing to Cargo Net

  • In several SASUKE/Ninja Warrior's international formats, the first tire of this obstacle was combined with the cargo net, with a rope at the starting platform. Therefore, competitors must swing from the rope and grabbed the tire. Then, competitors must build enough swing and momentum to make the transition to the cargo net, and finally reached the landing platform to advance.
