See what the excitement is about at Circuit X

by Abu Dhabi Travel Planner

Circuit X Abu Dhabi is the family-centric centre for adventure on Al Hudayriyat Island, Abu Dhabi.

Get set for action packed outdoor time when you hit Abu Dhabi with your kids.

Yas Island may be the most famous of Abu Dhabi’s islands for it’s great selection of theme parks and entertainment venues, but up and coming leisure island Al Hudayriyat is certainly giving it a run for it’s money when it comes to seeking out action-packed sporting activities.

One of the highlights of visiting Al Hudayriyat Island is exploring the four activity parks on offer by Circuit X.

Spread across two locations on the island, Circuit X is aimed at your active kids & families offering a Ropes Park, BMX Park, Skate Park and Splash Park.

Let’s take a closer look at each and exactly what you can expect.

Where to find Circuit X

Al Hudayriyat Island is a long sand island that sits immediately to the west of the main Abu Dhabi island. From the end of 19th Street, a bridge extends over to Al Hudayriyat. Once across the bridge, head right at the first round about.

You will follow the signs to the Adventure Village for the Ropes Park and BMX Park. Here you will also find the large dome of 321 Sports, OCR Park and the luxury glamping site Bab Al Najoum.

The Skate Park and Splash Park are set in the waterfront area of Marsana, adjacent to the Al Hudayriyat beach.

The two locations aren’t really walking distance apart so you will want to take you car between the two if planning a full day out.

Tickets for each are sold separately for each park – we’ll detail below current costs and opening hours for all the parks.

Ropes Park at Circuit X

The Ropes Park at Circuit X offers three levels of high rope challenges, plus 3 extra adrenaline challenges you can add on to your experience.

High Ropes Course

For your kids 7 years+ (over 121cm), they can start with the Green Kids circuit which takes them on an introductory loop of different obstacles.

If they are confident, they can move on to the Blue Scout Circuit for their second lap (recommended for 11 years plus but any kid whose undertaken a ropes course before will find the Green Course really easy).

The Extreme Black Circuit at a rather breathtaking 10 metres above the ground is for your teens, only 15-years-old+.

Freefall & Zip Line

Once you’ve finished the ropes course, there are two fun ways to get down again; freefall or zip line.

The Freefall allows participants to plunge 13 metres to the ground in a controlled platform jump. Meanwhile zip line travels from the highest point in the ropes course 100 metres across the whole BMX park beneath.

Climbing wall

The climbing wall is open to kids from 110cm/6 years old. The 50ft high wall is certainly one of the most challenging open to kids in Abu Dhabi in the younger age group. Helpful and friendly staff are on hand throughout the park for safety, guidance and encouragement.

Immediately adjacent to the Al Hudayriyat beachfront at Marsana, you’ll find the Splash & Climb Park. Ideal for your slightly younger ones (though open to kids up to 12 years of age), the park is split into a wet and dry area.

In the splash park you’ll find not just fountains and squirters, but a huge vertical climbing maze. Meanwhile on the ‘dry’ side of the park there are further climbing structures and a pirate ship takes centre stage.

There is also an adjoining temperature-controlled infinity pool (yet to open) which will be available for events and private hire, perfect for sunset views over the beach.
