    Parkour will have a grand reopening event on August 19 at 3pm EST!

    Will the leaderboards be reset?
    Yes, the leaderboards will be reset. The record times are still documented on forums, however.

    Will my levels and progress be reset?
    Yes. However, you can get more levels by playing courses with your friends!

    Changes to levels
    Easy courses: 1 level reward
    Red Easy courses: 2 level reward
    Norm courses: 2 level reward
    Red Norm courses: 3 level reward
    Hard courses: 3 level reward
    Red Hard courses: 4 level reward
    Cray courses: 4 level reward
    Red Cray courses: 5-6 level reward.

    The courses will also have a short reward delay.

    Seasonal Courses
    Courses from the old parkour server will be added on a monthly or seasonal basis. These temporary courses can be found in the normal parkour lobbies with the rest of the courses, but will have a blue sign. Some of these courses may be improved and become regular courses.

    Color coded course signs.
    This has been a feature for a little while now, but course signs in the Easy, Norm, Hard, and Cray lobbies are now visible and are color coded based on their difficulty. Green are the easy courses, yellow are normal/intermediate, and red are harder courses. This is helpful for seeing the difficulty of a course within the Easy, Norm, Hard, and Cray difficulties.

    Optional tutorial/training course.
    Players will no longer need to complete the tutorial in order to do other courses. Instead, there will be an optional training course, where players can learn how to do many jumps that are common in Easy, Norm, Hard, and Cray courses.
    You may use /pa join trainingcourse, or use the stone pressure plates near spawn to get to this course.

    New ranks!
    Parkour will have 13 new ranks! For some ranks, you will be able to complete a course to be rewarded that rank. For example, you can get the Pro rank by completing SuperPrincePro.

    Initiate 0
    Rabbit 1
    Rugged 12
    Spartan 28
    Warrior 36
    Mudder 50
    Savage 60
    Maniac 75
    Viking 85
    Commander 95
    Freerunner 100
    Novice: 150
    Guide: 200
    Lead: 250
    Veteran: 300
    Pro 350 (or superprincepro)
    Elite: 400
    Expert: 500
    Artisan: 750 (or billthecircle)
    Champion: 1000 (or nyankour3)
    Sage: 1500
    Master: 2000
    WayMaster: 2500
    GrandMaster: 3000

    Additionally, players who complete the hardest courses will be rewarded with netherite.

    Updated all courses for 1.20.
    All the courses have been updated for 1.20. No more honey blocks (except for honey walls)!

    Additionally, players will not be able to go on the edges of netherrack, slime blocks, ice, or soul sand to avoid the effects in version 1.20+.

    Parkour Challenges!
    Players can now challenge other players to a parkour race.
    /pa challenge create (course): create a challenge
    /pa challenge invite (player): invite a player to the challenge.
    /pa challenge accept: accept a challenge.
    /pa challenge decline: decline a challenge
    /pa challenge begin: start the challenge.

    Wow that's exciting. The change to shifting on the edge of blocks will make for a very interesting new playstyle.

    Do you have coordinates for the course? I saw a parkour with jumps, but nothing resembling clouds.

    If you have submitted a course over at Post your Parkour Courses HERE! | The Sandlot - A Family-Friendly Minecraft Community (sandlotminecraft.com) and it isn't in the Parkour server at the time of the Parkour Grand Reopening, take heart:

    Courses in Parkour will change over time, and your accepted map could very well be one of them.

    In the meantime, if it hasn't been accepted yet, be sure to keep working on any feedback you may have received. You'll know when your map has been accepted.

    And thank you all the involved moderators, helpers, and course-makers for the hard work that's gone into preparing for this reopening! An especially big thanks goes to @WanderingLlama, without whom this grand reopening and future map additions would not be happening!
