Enjoy splashing at night at Golfland-Sunsplash 

For this week's "water week" we hit Golfland-Sunsplash in Mesa, where they've got some new offerings for Valley residents. New this year, you'll notice a new entrance to the park, a new bumper cars attraction for the kids, along with "night splash." Since summer days can get too hot for folks, you can instead enjoy splashing around at night, as late as 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday's.
