Founded in 2013, the Bikini Basketball Association is comprised of five female teams in Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, and Philadelphia. Though the association's name suggests that players hit the court wearing swimwear, they actually play in tight-fitting spandex athletic gear that does not billow in the wind like traditional jerseys, threatening to fill with air and lift players off the court and out of the gymnasium.

Dining areas pepper the park's walkways for between-ride snacks, and, come nightfall, fireworks fill the sky to entertain visitors and idling pigeons.
The Edge 14 theater projects new releases onto the silver screen in high style with luxurious facilities and delectable snacks. Cinephiles can choose from any of the shows ($6.50–$8.50) playing on the eight screens—including 3-D flicks ($9–$11)—taking care of any last-minute Oscar catch-up or continuing an unbroken 14-year boycott of all nominated films because of the 70th Academy Awards' snubbing of Con Air's "How Do I Live" for Best Original Song. Dip your mandibles into a large popcorn ($6), included with your tickets, and purchase a self-serve drink replete with free refills.
