Your idea could change Ninja Warrior history.

David Becker/NBC

American Ninja Warrior is back and that means it’s time for the Obstacle Design Challenge!

Your obstacle idea could become the next great Ninja hurdle on the course in season 13.

No one knows how to test the Ninjas quite like you, the fans. The Obstacle Design Challenge has altered the course of American Ninja Warrior history over the past few seasons. It’s inspired the Wingnuts, Crank It Up, Deja Vu, and the Double Dipper, just to name a few.

Is it your turn to make Ninja Warrior history? Click here to submit your idea or use the form below. Be sure to review all the contest rules before you begin.

You have until November 23, 2020 to enter your idea for a chance to win. Let’s see what you’ve got!

If your design is selected as the winner, your obstacle will come alive on the course in season 13. Plus, you could win an adventure of your own at Universal Orlando Resort.

The winner and one guest will win a trip to Universal Orlando Resort to experience the heart-pounding thrills and mind-blowing adventures of Universal’s three incredible theme parks, staying steps away from the fun at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort!
