A Huge Off-Roading Adventure Park All Set To Open In UAE
XQuarry, located in Al Faya Mountain in Mleiha deset in Sharjah, is set to open on February 5th and 6th, 2021 offering off-roading thrill, obstacle races, hikes and remote- control cars, guaranteeing unbeatable fun, action and adventure.
The adventure park has been created in close co-operation and strategic partnership with Mleiha and Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq).
Spread across approx. 1 million square metres in Al Faya Mountain in Sharjah’s Mleiha desert, the park features 15 km of off-roading trails and 20 custom- build off-roading obstacles, a dedicated obstacle running course, mountain bike trails, a remote-control car area as well as hiking trails.
XQuarry offers a range of adventurous and fun activities for people of all ages and fitness levels, featuring off -roading, Obstacle Running, Mountain Biking, Hiking and Remote-Controlled Cars.
XQuarry Adventure Park provides the opportunity for all to escape the ordinary, explore thrilling and challenging activities and immerse themselves in a fun-filled day amidst magnificent desert scenario. The focus of the park is to provide outdoor training and education for people to learn and master their skills to act safe and responsible in the outdoors.
THE OFF- ROADERS can find approx. 15km of off-roading tracks requiring different skill levels as well as technical modifications on the vehicle. The tracks mostly made of gravel and rocks and a mud pit, come with several obstacles for added fun and adventure. Since most of the impressive dunes in the Northern Emirates are just outside the park, visitors can take advantage of the opportunity to combine a desert drive with a park visit. Drive experiences with rented 4×4 vehicle at XQuarry will be available in the second phase of the park opening.
OBSTACLE RUNNING at XQuarry is the most amazing and challenging permanent obstacle course in the UAE. Approximately 2km of running distance filled with different obstacles await the adrenaline junkies and if this is not enough, trail and ultra-runners can extend their running distance by including the hiking trails. The obstacles include climbing, jumping, crawling, swinging, balancing and voila, you might even get wet!
MOUNTAIN BIKING (MTB) at XQuarry is the closest mountain cycling trail to the big cities reachable in less than an hour. There are single trails as well as MTB obstacle trail and what’s more, you can extend the trails outside the park which go beyond 10km. Enjoy a fun ride up and down small hills or meander through the steep curves and bumps to add to the thrill and fun. Rental bikes are expected to be available soon.
HIKING TRAILS abound for thrill- seekers and families with breath- taking panoramic views of the desert. Short family-friendly loops are available for beginners, while the more daring hikers can scramble through the rocky hurdles and cliffs to reach the mountain top.
REMOTE -CONTROL CARS (RC) are another highlight of the park with approximately 500m of custom-built RC tracks along with dedicated shaded areas for the operators and spectators to overlook the track. Additionally, there are racetracks with curves and jumps to compete for the fasted lap and those seeking technical challenges can enjoy the RC Obstacle Track, which shall be available in near future.
The new off-roading adventure park, being first of its kind in the UAE, will provide a set of completely different experiences.
