Here is another random detail that truly harkens back to the origins of the park and its history.
The "Splash Fountain" always seemed so very random to me. Just tucked away in the back of the park...but also right in the middle of the walkway. Super weird placement. This part of the park is pretty ugly and vast, with very little greenery, so I assume the fountain is there to smooth out some of those edges.
And just because I'm a sucker for super corny/amazing movie trailers...here is the wonderful trailer for Splash, complete with over the top awesome narrator.
