Off-Roading

Starting at AED150.00/day

Who can attend?

You can visit and explore the park on your own, with a group of friends, or you can book some of our training courses. The emphasis is on coming with your own car and learning how to master it off-road.  We are also going to offer driving experiences with a 4×4 you can rent at XQuarry in the second phase of the park opening.

Permitted access to the park:

Access and use of the park is at your own risk!

Please read our terms and conditions.

4x4s with road registration

Modified 4x4s in good technical condition

UTVs with roll cage

Touring bikes/Enduro

Motorbikes are not permitted

Quads are not permitted

  • We will require a UAE or international driving license for the entrance to the park. Fire extinguishers and first aid kits are mandatory in every car. Flags and helmets are mandatory for UTVs.
  • The activities are not supervised unless you book a guided drive, a private lesson or a course.
  • Don’t come alone, ideally come in groups of 2 or 3 cars to be able to guide each other. Most obstacles require a spotter outside the car to ensure safe passage.
  • Always wear your seat-belt – small children must have an appropriate child seat. We will not allow entrance if you do not have child seats for your kids.

 

Guided Drives AED250

If you plan to come alone or are not sure about you and your car’s capabilities, we recommend you opt for a guided drive which is only an extra AED100 to the off-road admission of AED250. This is the best and safest way to get a taste of off-roading. The guided drive is done at the main obstacles and will take 1-2hrs, depending on the group size.

Thursdays: 02:00pm
Fridays: 11:00am & 02:00pm
Saturdays: 11:00am & 02:00pm

Since the group size is limited to a maximum of 5 cars, we recommend to book a slot in advance to ensure availability. For more details, email reservation@xquarry.com or WhatsApp: 055 2855336

Access to the mountain trail and plateau

  • To access the mountain, you first need to complete all the obstacles – once you confidently pass them, you may be approved to drive up the mountain.
  • Drives up are only possible after 11am before the track is open for hikers only.
  • You are only allowed to drive up the mountain in groups with a min of 2 cars, and a max of 6. The limit on the mountain is 12 cars. You are not allowed to camp, picnic or BBQ on the mountain. You will be assigned time slots so as not to block the mountain access path.
  • The access to the mountain is locked at all times – you need permission and a key to open the lock from the entrance office.
  • The entry ticket does not entitle you to access the mountain – it’s the sole decision of the park manager to grant access.
  • It’s not permitted to dig or alter the tracks up the mountain. We have placed wood and rocks at key sections for your use, in case you get stuck.
  • Your vehicle needs to have sufficient clearance and tyres for all terrains.
  • Stay on the main track!
  • When coming down, drive in first gear.

 

What to expect?

You will find 15 km of custom-built off-roading tracks requiring different skill levels, which also caters to technically modified vehicles (advanced level). The tracks are mostly gravel and rock, and there is also a mud pit. Some of the most impressive dunes in the northern Emirates are found just outside the park providing the opportunity to combine a desert drive with a park visit.

In addition to the tracks, you will find many custom-built obstacles simulating different driving situations. These obstacles will challenge your driving and technical skills, as well as test the capabilities of your vehicle. We have 20 different obstacles (and we’re regularly creating new ones), some of which have different levels of difficulty such as the slope climb with different angles and/or different surfaces.

We have worked very hard on selecting and building our obstacles with a clear focus on testing not only the driver’s skills, but also the technical capability of the vehicle:

Clearance

Approach & Departure Angle

Break Over/Ramp Angle

Wading/Fording Depth

Maximum Gradients Up/Down

Traction on Different Surfaces

Suspension (articulation, ramp travel index)

Side Slope Angle/Lateral Incline

On our natural rock and gravel trails, you will face the same challenges but in an uncontrolled environment which makes it much harder. You need to judge if you and your car are able to take on the obstacle or not. We have different grades for the trails, as long as you stick to the easy trails most drivers should be able to complete them. If you go on to the pro level, we will throw it all at you – it will only be possible with modified cars and with exceptional driving skills.

If there is something you cannot find, tell us! If you miss a particular challenge or obstacle, we’ll do our best to include it in the park for the future.

Ramp Travel Index

or RTI, is a way of measuring a vehicle’s ability to flex its suspension aka axle articulation.

ATV & UTV

Most trails can also be driven by ATVs.

Rock the Rocks

Since the park is situated in an old quarry, you can expect rocks, rocks, and more rocks.

Get Dirty

We have set-up several water and mud features in the park.
