Scenic Rim's Youth Week celebrations will hit thrilling highs with the Extreme Ninja Challenge coming to Beaudesert, Tamborine Mountain and Boonah during the Easter school holidays.
In a test of speed and agility, competitors will be able to take on the 28-metre inflatable Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course while Under 12s can also take part in the Youth Week activities with the 14-metre junior ninja course. There will also be high-octane virtual reality fun for all ages.
Mayor Greg Christensen said Youth Week was a great time to celebrate the positive contributions young people make within the Scenic Rim.
"These young people are the future of our communities and we want to support them by celebrating their boundless energy, which is fitting with the 2019 Queensland Youth Week theme of Unlimited," he said.
"We look forward to encouraging them to look at how they can be part of the social, economic and cultural life of their community."
The Ninja Warrior Challenges will take place from 9am to 1pm on the following days and locations:
At Beaudesert and Boonah, the sky's the limit with young people able to fly in the Air Force's F18 Super Hornet simulator. They can also have a turn flying a PC-21 aircraft or try their air traffic control skills inside a simulated control tower. Serving RAAF personnel will be on hand to answer questions.
At Tamborine Mountain, young people can get behind the wheel in a driving simulator.
The free events will include a barbecue lunch with other food and drinks available for purchase.
Scenic Rim's Youth Week activities are funded with support from the Queensland Government.
Queensland Youth Week is held from 3 to 14 April as an annual celebration for young people aged 12 to 25.
