MESA, AZ — Update May 8, 2020: According to Golfland Sunsplash's website, the four water slides on the Golfland side of the venue did not open on Friday, as initially touted.
Golfland Sunsplash said Wednesday that it would reopen some of its water slides and outdoor attractions on Friday, May 8, but later clarified that the "Sunsplash" side of the attraction -- the water park with larger rides and wave pool -- would remain closed.
The attractions that will be reopening are mini golf, bumper cars, and race cars, as well as the Dragon Tail, Bonzi Slides, Cauldron, and Thunder Falls water slides, all individual body slides or tube slides, according to Golfland Sunsplash's website. Those attractions are on the "Golfland" side of the venue, which is a separate facility from the Sunsplash water park, but collectively part of the same attraction.
The rides will reopen at 10 a.m. and the water slides will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Swimming areas and the water park will remain closed because of social distancing guidelines, according to Tony Jones, marketing director for Golfland Sunsplash. The arcade will remain closed until Monday, May 11.
In an email, he said a "limited" number of timed-entry passes would be available each day. It was not immediately clear how many passes would be available.
According to the website, there are three types of tickets: one for the rides, one for the slides, and one that includes both. Pricing varies between $15-$29. View more information.
It is also possible that not all of the rides will be open every day. "Due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 our schedule may change frequently. Check our hours page on the date of your visit to confirm available attractions," is written in bold red lettering on the website.
All employees will wear masks and will undergo temperature checks before their shifts, according to Golfland's website. Guests are being encouraged to wear masks, hand sanitizer will be available throughout the facility, and all points of contact will be cleaned after every use, the website said.
Golfland Sunsplash is located near the US 60 and Country Club Drive in Mesa.
