The Broken Pipes is a new obstacle which debuted on American Ninja Warrior 9 as the third obstacle in the Kansas City Qualifier. It consisted of two Spinning Logs and a small spring-loaded circle placed between the logs. Competitors must run across a log which spun on an axis and must jump to the other log which also spin in an axis. Once the competitor reached the second log, they had to run across it and continue to the landing mats in order to clear it. To make it more harder, the second log is placed slightly on the right.
