It will welcome customers from Friday, December 10. Former footballer Chris Kamara, who presents show with Ben Shephard and Rochelle Humes, will be there on opening day.

The venue will feature a warrior obstacle course, a ninja obstacle course and giant inflatables.

A statement on the Ninja Warrior UK website says: “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.

“All of our venues are fun, safe and inclusive, enabling all participants to create their own Ninja Warrior UK journeys."

Visitors to the Chatham centre will be able to climb, balance, jump and swing across different obstacles including the show’s famous Warped Wall.

Parents and carers will be able to watch their little ninjas for free from the cafe area.
