Shop and Splash for Free: The Best Way to Cool Off in Phoenix


This post was sponsored by our partners at Shops at Norterra.

Anyone living in Phoenix experiences four seasons: tolerable, hot, really hot, and are you freakin’ kidding me?

Welcome to “are you freakin’ kidding me” otherwise known as August in Phoenix!  As news reporters fry eggs on sidewalks, people bake chocolate chip cookies on dash boards, and chickens lay hard-boiled eggs, Phoenix moms are looking for ways to keep cool and share time with the young’uns.

One great way is to visit The Shops at Norterra thru August 31st. Located at 2460 W. Happy Valley Rd in Phoenix, Norterra is helping valley moms enjoy the summer heat with their kids. Here’s the deal: visit Norterra and spend a total of $200 or more in a single day at any of the shops or restaurants and you receive two free passes to Wet ‘n’ Wild in Phoenix. Finding places to shop is certainly not a problem. Everything you’re looking for is there – from apparel to specialty stores.  You’ll find Bath & Body Works, Best Buy, Charming Charlie, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Victoria’s Secret, as well as restaurants and eateries including Buffalo Wild Wings, Jamba Juice, Panera Bread, Smashburger, and the brand new Texas Roadhouse.  Plus, don’t forget about Harkins Norterra 14 Theatres and dozens of other destinations for shopping, dining, services and entertainment.

Once you’ve reached the $200, simply bring your same-day receipts to Yogurtini, located across from Harkins Norterra, or to the Norterra Management Office, located behind Victoria’s Secret (open 8-5 Mon-Fri).

This might be the best deal in town. Here’s why: general admission to Wet ‘n’ Wild during the week is $32; $35 on weekends. That means families get a $70 value simply by enjoying a day of shopping, dining, or movies at The Shops at Norterra!

This is a great way for the kids to enjoy a day at Wet ‘n’ Wild – bobbing down the Crazy Cactus Roaring River or riding the four-foot waves in Monsoon Bay.  There are also Dive ‘n’ Movie nights throughout the summer! All the while, you spend fun family time with your children!!!
