Golfland Sunsplash To Reopen Some Water Slides, Water Park To Remain Closed

Golfland Sunsplash announced Wednesday they were planning to reopen some of its water slides and outdoor attractions on Friday, May 8. Customers should know that the “Sunsplash” side of the attraction, the water park with rides and wave pool, will remain closed for the time being.

The attractions that will be reopening are mini golf, bumper cars, and race cars, the Dragon Tail, Bonzi Slides, Cauldron, and Thunder Falls water slides, all individual body slides or tube slides. Those attractions are on the “Golfland” side of the venue, which is a separate facility from the Sunsplash water park.

According to Tony Jones, marketing director for Golfland Sunsplash, the park will open at 10 a.m. and the water slides will be open from noon to 5 p.m. All swimming areas and the entire water park will remain closed due to social distancing guidelines. The arcade will also remain closed until Monday, May 11.

In a press release, the park says, “We are playing it safe! The health of our employees and guests is extremely important to us. We have implemented additional safety measures to ensure a safe and healthy visit.”

Jones also said a “limited” number of timed-entry passes would be available each day. It was not immediately clear how many passes would be available.

If you are planning a visit, is important to know that not all of the rides will be open every day. Due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 their schedule may change frequently. The park asks that customers check their website for operating hours on the date of your visit to confirm available attractions.

Gov. Doug Ducey on Monday accelerated his reopening plan for Arizona, saying that expanded testing and declines in reported COVID-like illnesses had provided “a green light to make additional decisions for our first step forward.”

In his press conference, the governor did not mention water parks. Arizonans can expect an announcement about swimming pools and fitness centers coming soon as they take steps in the reopening of the state.
