The first round of the Semi-Finals for ‘American Ninja Warrior’ season 12 dropped this week and it is packed with some of the best performances and the toughest challenges. In the beginning, the course seems to be pretty straightforward. However, the players face some major difficulties with the introduction of two new daunting obstacles.
First, the course embeds a wild new obstacle called Corkscrew. The Ninjas need to cling on to three pins that hurl and spin as they quickly drop. It throws the players at breakneck speed — something we have not seen in the show before. Next, is the Dungeon. The Ninjas are required to climb vertically up a panel and then, lock it into its original place. They then have to climb back across the panel horizontally and jump on to a spinning board to finally get down.
Well, with the introduction of these bizarre obstacles, only 5 Ninjas make it to the buzzer. Of course, we have the names in our recap section. But before that, here is our preview for the next episode.
