We attended for the F1 final weekend and had a brilliant time. The reasons a star has been deducted is due to the carnage after, trying to get a taxi.

The weekend was amazing, there was hundreds of staff members inside and outside the circuit looking to help you before & during the event… once you leave the event the help stops & you are on your own trying to find the best way back to your hotel. The circuit does put on free buses that go around the outside of circuit including to get to the after concert which as the circuit it huge & would take over 45 mins to walk from one end to the other.

The festival vibes were fabulous (we were south stand) there was so much entertainment I couldn’t keep up. The atmosphere was unreal both in the stands and in the oasis area.

Going back to the taxi situation there appears to be no system to get a taxi after the events, it’s pure luck & good timing - BEWARE of fake taxis that will stop & offer to take you for double-quadruple the price that the fare should be, they claim to be Uber drivers & look to take advantage of your desperation to get home.

It was an fabulous experience overall from air displays, fireworks, dancers & music to charge packs, ear defenders & lots of food options.

One thing that stood out is a wristband was offered for my child in case they got lost, fantastic idea & not one I’ve come across in a crowded event before.

Would highly recommend F1 weekend in Abu Dhabi, get the super park pass if you book direct with the circuit as it is very good value. Push your budget to stay on YAS island so you don’t have a transport issue after the race.

If your budget will allow upgrade to golden circle for the after show concert - we upgraded for the SHM this year & found we had plenty of room to enjoy ourselves with a child. The queue for the bar was very long though.

We visited the circuit to hire bikes and cycle the circuit on a Wednesday evening, unfortunately when we arrived there were no helmets left so we had to pay to hire some. There were road and mountain bikes available and we enjoyed completing several laps, you're able to ride, walk or run the 5km track from 7.30pm. An excellent activity which the children really enjoyed.

This is my third trip to Yas Marina to watch the F1 Grand Prix. This year the Friday Grand Prix Brunch tickets were way overpriced and I didn't feel they were going to be value for money, and so we booked weekend grandstand tickets for pretty much the same money. People complain that the Abu Dhabi GP is boring and maybe it is on the TV, but in person it's just the best. The atmosphere is electric, the weather naturally stunning, and I think being the last race in the calendar adds to fun. The tickets arrived by secure courier and in plenty of time. The whole event is organised to perfection, as always. The buses around the circuit are an added bonus and the after race concerts great. Be prepared that the only real way back to the city after the concerts is by the organised taxis and they will be charging a surcharge. A bit pricier than we expected, and I had hoped that we might be able to find someone to share a taxi with, but no joy. This year we needed to pre-pay for food and drink onto a credit card system, which was great to make things cashless however it was hard to judge how much to deposit and I'm sure most people ended up with not spending all that they loaded. The Yas app was shocking this year - previously it's been a great source of info and the notifications are really helpful, but this year was a waste of time - Yas Marina, please get this sorted!

The ride along track experience in the Porsche Taycan was unbelievably fun and a highlight of my short holiday here in Abu Dhabi. My instructor/driver James was an absolute gent, making sure Id have the best time possible as he thrashed around the track reaching 245kph! 😱. The launch control in this all electric car is something pretty hard to put into words. I could tell the passion he has in what he does, enhancing my time in the paddock and in the car that bit more. This was during the evening session whilst the track was completely illuminated (giving you the essence of the F1 night races), I think this was a great choice as opposed to a very hot and sweaty midday slot. I was made to feel very welcomed from the moment I walked in, my assigned rep Alessia was absolutely amazing and made the whole process of the experience very smooth. She was beautiful person who you can tell cared for what she does and has customer experience down to a T.
Cheers again guys, take care 🤙🏻

Terrible customer service.

We were unable to attend the GP as South Africa was put on the red list in December 2021 due to Omicron.
Every other supplier refunded out money (accommodation, Rugby 7's, Emirates) EXCEPT Yas Marina.
5 months later and I am still following up with them, They will reply to a mail initially, say they have arranged the refund, they will get back to me after following up... and then I never hear from them again... until I send another follow up mail.

I think the most frustrating part is having to keep following up and checking bank accounts when they say they have done the refund, when in fact, they have not.

SHAME ON YOU, beware to anyone else out there who pre-books anything with this establishment, you will be in for a lonnnnnnnng ride to get any type of response from them!

Watch out for YMC customer service!! Very dissapointed with their inflexibility. Booked for the open drag night on the evening of the 13th April for the next day. Received a generic email but no ticket. Logged in to the site and could still not download a ticket. Owing to poor communication on the website re: timing of the event, and a late change to the session time (was not notified by YMC; instead discovered through the unofficial yas.drag instagram page - good job, guys), decided to change the booking to a session in May. Called YMC and they said they would ask the drag team. A few hours later, the response was a solid 'No' and no possibility of a refund. I asked for a contact in the drag racing dept./team but they would not oblige. Customer service agent eventually said he would go back to ask the team again. I never heard back from anyone.

Sent another email a few hours before the event to complain... no response.

Money paid (inc. Helmet rental); no repsonse to my last 2 communications (phone and email); no ticket issued on the date of the event; no change of date (all I wanted); no refund.

When I eventually accessed the ticket the day after the event, there was no mention of a policy concerning rescheduling or refunds.

Atrocious service #ymcofficial I love the drag nights - great people/vibe/community - my favourite thing to do in Abu Dhabi, but now I am afraid to part with my money for fear of losing it! BUYERS BEWARE.

Was part of the F1 experience team in the circuit… visited all the four days of a grande final event to the championship… What a race it was… The day and night circuit was a spectacle by itself and complimented with the Finale race to the championship…!!!

The arrangements were awesome with a great number of customer experience zones welcoming nationals from Multi continents… with a range of food from Malaysian to Mexican, from The taste of Indian delicacy to Italian pizzas and pastas, from Indonesian to Lebanese kababs..

It was a treat to watch the air show display by the etihad team, to top it with the championship decider..:

A treat to watch and enjoy… truly a moment to remember…for a lifetime…!!!

We went along on a Tuesday evening when there is free entry for the public. My son cycled round the track using the free bikes and helmets provided. I walked the track instead, with lots of other people walking, jogging or running. It’s a lovely way to spend an evening, and feels really sociable. You can register in advance at the TrainYAS website.

We did this activity twice this week, one walking & the second time on a free bike.

Monday evening - walked around in 90 minutes, leisurely stroll.

Wednesday evening on the free bikes. Arrived at 5.15 and the queue for the free bikes & helmets had already started to form.
Bike collection opens @ 6pm
Circuit opens 6pm.

This is a great activity for the whole family.

FYI
You can view the track from upstairs in YAS Central via the balcony.
There is also a Small gift shop selling YAS Circuit merchandise on the ground floor through the door marked ‘Drivers Only’.

This was a great experience. We registered in advance. It is free. You simply show your barcode to the staff and they give you a bicycle and helmet. Racing bikes are also available. Fast riders go on one side of the track, slower riders on the other side. You can also walk / run round the track if you wish. Available once a week from 6pm to 10pm under the floodlights it is a great way to see a Formula 1 track and keep fit at the same time.
