An adventure park brand will be coming to a popular North East retail park ‘soon.’

A Teesside Park spokesperson has confirmed Ninja Warrior will be “coming to the centre” and added they will be releasing more details soon.

This comes after it was confirmed in July last year that the company were in talks to take over the vacant former Rainbow Casino which closed in 2016.

Speaking at the time, a Teesside Park spokesperson said: "We can confirm we’re in talks with Ninja Warrior to join the centre and will share more information when we’re able to."

Ninja Warrior has courses in areas such as Edinburgh, Leeds, Swansea, and Sheffield.

A statement on Ninja Warrior UK's website reads: "The Ninja Warrior UK TV show is great family entertainment and is both inspiring and aspirational. 

"Which is why ITV and its partners have created different types of Ninja Warrior UK supervised activity and fitness venues across the UK, all geared to wide age and ability ranges.
