A First Look at the Seattle/Tacoma Indoor Course

These photos are great, but all they do is leave us wanting more!

Only hours remain between now and the episode we’ve all been waiting for — American Ninja Warrior: The Seattle/Tacoma Qualifiers. While we’re waiting to see for ourselves what went down in the Tacoma Dome (during the first ever indoor, daytime filming of ANW!), here are some photos to get us pumped up. Above is Jake Murray. What entertaining antics will he pull out on the course this year? Below are some photos that show more than just the Shrinking Steps. If you don’t want to peek, we understand (and commend you for having way more willpower than us!).

Is it a mega confidence boost or way too much pressure when you’re running the course in front of a giant backdrop of yourself?

Lorin Ball shows us a brand new obstacle. Looks can be deceiving, but Lorin makes it look fun! After competing on every season, we wonder how this obstacle ranks among his favorites.

Hey, hey! It’s Jessie Graff! We’ve missed this smile on the course.

Hopefully, Mady Howard is quick on her feet! Those balance obstacles are never a guarantee.

Jackie Ehlers looks laser-focused on finishing this obstacle.

And...there’s that 18 foot Mega Wall. How many Ninjas will make it to the top? So far, the record is four in one city.
