The State Capitol Building will be the backdrop once again.

After the action wraps up in Atlanta, American Ninja Warrior will move to Oklahoma City for its third season 11 location. Similar to Atlanta, this will be the show’s second time to the location, the first which was also back in season eight.

The show will tape the Qualifiers and City Finals over the course of April 12-13, returning to the State Capitol Building. Ninja Warrior’s last visit brought some especially epic and moving moments.

In season eight, Thomas Stillings snagged the top time in Qualifiers, just seconds ahead of Daniel Gil, setting up a friendly rivalry.

Artis Thompson III has us all inspired with that incredible on the Log Runner.

Daniel Gil had the fastest time in the City Finals.

Grant Clinton finished the City Finals course just six months after having a stroke and brain surgery.

The Oklahoma City State Capitol building is a grand backdrop for the show. The building was constructed in 1917 and includes the Oklahoma Veterans Memorial. It was beautiful, spacious location in season eight. Let’s just hope we avoid any tornado warnings this time.

American Ninja Warrior loves to provide the chance for local sports talent to try out the course. So we’ll have to keep an eye out for Rumble the Bison, the mascot of the Oklahoma City Thunder (NBA).
