MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

This weekend is going to be sizzling! So we looked for some fool-proof ways to escape the blistering heat.

If you want to stay inside to beat the heat, how about catching a movie at any of the Harkins theaters around town?

Or, for free, you can grab the family and head out to the mall.

And for a splashing good time, take the kids to a splash pad for endless fun. Just remember to slather on the sunscreen so they don’t get a sunburn.

Another great water activity? Cool off while tubing down a lazy river at one of the Valley's many water parks or resorts. Who doesn't love catching a wave at the Sunsplash wave pool or twisting and turning on one of its many slides.

“At first, you go straight down and then there are sharp turns and you almost fall off, it’s a bit scary,” said Becket Smith.

The most important thing to remember when dealing with the Arizona heat is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water all day long.
