Tire Swing

American Ninja Warrior 7's Tire Swing in Orlando

The Tire Swing is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the fourth obstacle on 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.

-22- Tyre Swing
-04- Tyre Swing to Cargo Net
  • On several Ninja Warrior's international format (e.g. Australian Ninja Warrior), this obstacle was named as the Tyre Swing, because of two types of spelling (American spelling: Tire, and British spelling: Tyre).
  • Also, 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.
