The Cannonball Drop is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the second obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 9 in Los Angeles.
Competitors must grab onto a 9-inches diameter cannonball, and ride it down a slightly steeped track, with two drops that would test the grip strength of the competitor. During Los Angeles qualifiers, the obstacle took out 28 competitors, as well as 5 more competitors during Los Angeles finals.
The Cannonball Drop was attempted early during Celebrity Ninja Warrior: Red Nose Day. However, the number of the drops on the track was reduced from two to just one. Among the 9 celebrity competitors who attempted it, only Nikki Glaser failed to complete it.
