SunSplash Waterpark is now open daily, and the Mesa venue is starting its 28th season with a new addition to its water slide lineup.

Double Dare, an Arizona first, drops riders through a trapdoor in the floor, letting them free fall then slide from a height of more than six stories into a pool of water at the bottom. There are similar rides at SunSplash in Roseville, Calif., and Six Flags of St. Louis.

SunSplash Waterpark is at 155 W. Hampton Ave. For hours, pricing and information, call (480) 834-8319 or visit
