Fans of American Ninja Warrior will get to test their obstacle course skills at a new family entertainment center coming to Knoxville.
Adventure Action Park will be a 66,000-square-foot locally owned and operated facility in the former Kroger building, at 9305 Kingston Pike in Market Place Shopping Center.
“We provide cutting-edge entertainment, fitness and extreme recreation all under one roof,” Brown said.
Adventure Action Park will include a court of 60 connected trampolines with activities like a climbing wall, parkour, basketball dunk zone, extreme dodge ball, tumbling lanes and a “Ninja Warrior” obstacle course.
“This is full on active recreation,” Brown said. “Even athletes will have challenges completing the ninja course.”
There will be a 1/5-mile track with high performance electric go-karts that can go up to 45 mph.
Birthday parties for adults, too
The active recreation center isn’t just for kids. The center will offer birthday party packages for children and adults and host corporate outings and field trips.
“Because of our variety of activities we can accommodate ages from toddlers to 50-year-olds,” Brown said.
Adventure Action Park has locations outside of Atlanta and Charlotte. This is the first location that will include go-karts, Brown said. A fourth location is planned for Mount Juliet, outside of Nashville.
“It’s truly fun. I enjoy it, it’s a passion for me,” Brown said. “Anytime I’m in one of the parks, everybody in the park is having fun.”
He anticipates the park will employ about 70 people. Brown is a Knoxville native and lives in West Knoxville.
