Photos: American Ninja Warrior tryouts in Civic Center Park

If you've been wondering what the hell's going on in Civic Center Park, we have three words for you: American Ninja Warrior. Tryouts for the NBC competition show, making its Denver return, got underway last night around 8 p.m. and weren't scheduled to conclude until 5 a.m.! During that span, more than 100 people reportedly challenged themselves on an obstacle course in an attempt to qualify for the program, which awards $500,000 to the winner.

It's not too late to get in on the fun: Another round of tryouts is slated to get underway at 12:45 a.m. Thursday morning; click here for more details. In the meantime, look below to check out Twitpics and 9News screen caps from day one.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
