How fast summer begins to wane. Though the season’s tell-tale heat is still surface-of-the-sun intense, we know our days of lounging in the pool with the radio on and skipping the twice-daily school run are numbered.
If you’re in the business of squeezing in a few last hurrahs before back-to-school shopping begins, Night Splash makes a good one.
Going on every Friday and Saturday night in July and Saturdays in August, it’s a chance to ride the slides and waves at Mesa’s Golfland-Sunsplash water park after dark. Without the sun beating down and the nagging duty of re-applying sunscreen every few minutes, you can focus on just having fun.
And don’t let sudden monsoons worry you; if the park closes due to weather concerns, you’ll get a rain check for a return visit when skies are clear.
DETAILS >> 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Golfland-Sunsplash, 155 W. Hampton Ave., Mesa. $13.88 per person, or start at 5 p.m. for $19.99 per person. (480) 834-8319 or Golfland.com/mesa.
