“Great waterslides & good deals!”
Reviewed May 10, 2011

We did a day trip here on a Saturday and purchased 2 of their deals:
-$10 for unlimited video games, mini golf, and laser tag from 10-1
-$11 for unlimited water slides from 12-6

We got there at 10:15 am and there was already a decent line. Get there on time to get the most bang for your buck!

They have 2 18-hole mini golf courses, we only did the one on the right hand side. It was fun, but several of the holes were closed due to renovations and this was NOT posted when we bought our tickets. The video games were fun, its not valid for the ones the produce tickets, and we never had to wait. This also counted for the air hockey tables. We did not get to do laser tag. We put our names down, but the employees seemed disorganized and our names never got called, so we skipped it.

The water slides opened at noon and there were 6 open slides. We were there early in the season so the lines were almost non-existent. We have a golf land with slides near our home in San Jose, but this one was much better. It even had a wading/hang out pool as well as a sun lounging area. Slides were good and everything felt safe & well supervised. Slides were fast enough to keep us, full grown adults, laughing and having a good time. They arent "lame slides." This was a very fun way to have fun in the sun.

“Very Fun Time, but staff leaves much to be desired!”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

We visited Golfland Sunsplash for the first time on our trip to Phoenix this March. We went on Saturday morning during their unlimited Mini Golf/Video Games/Laser Tag special for $10 per person (from 10 am to 1 pm). We thought this was a very good deal and went with a group of 4 adults and 3 teens.

Our teenage boys (and the guys) all enjoyed the unlimited video games, but my daughter was not as happy because all the games that would normally give tickets were not included. She didn't want to earn the tickets, she just likes these games better than fighting/shooting games. I would think they could disable the tickets and let you play these unlimited also pretty easily.

The mini golf was very fun and had 2 different courses, one harder and one easier. We all had a great time playing.

The laser tag was everyone's favorite, but as there was the most staff interaction here it was most noticable how much these employees must hate their jobs. We waited over 5 minutes at the counter before even being acknowleged (and this was just "I'll be with you in a minute") while the staff texted and talked with each other. When we finally did get in to play the employee was very very rude and abrupt with us. She didn't give any help or advise on getting the jackets and guns on (they were very hard to adjust to the right size) and started the safety video while everyone was still getting them on so most of our group didnt hear all of the instructions and didnt understand how to play. When she activated our vests one of them didnt activate on the front so she man-handled one of the adults in our group and bodily spun him around to activated it from the back, all without saying a word.

Overall our experience was good, we would go back again, but if we recommended it to anyone it would come with a strong warning that the staff is very rude and if they couldn't tolerate that kind of behavior and attitude then they may want to go elsewhere.
