Location

Miami International Arena is built directly on top of the Miami Beach convention center as part of a plan to elevate the entire city of Miami Beach in preparation for its future as a Venice-like flooded city. The ballpark was a big hit, moving the Dale's center of operations closer to its fanbase than its previous ballpark in the former Toys "R" Us on US-1 across from Dadeland North Station.


Amenities

Miami International Arena is noted for its party-like atmosphere, with prominent DJs and rappers providing live entertainment, and the abundance of mirrored surfaces in its toilets. It is also the site of the PyroDome, a prototype roof that can be safely and repeatedly set on fire (typically when song lyrics call for it).

The ballpark's VIP sections are only accessible by speedboat. Rumors about the construction of the VIP section have abounded since Miami International Arena opened. One suggests that the flooding occurred accidentally in the middle of a game, while the section was occupied by billionaire real estate developers and speculators. There is currently no explanation of how a flood occurred nearly 100 feet above sea level, but it is widely agreed by both players and fans that the atmosphere at the ballpark is better without them. Visitors can generally find an unused speedboat floating around. Diving is not advised.

Miami International Arena is home to many species of wildlife, including a number of iguanas, brightly-feathered parakeet harpies, now-domesticated team pet Tres Leches, and lineup player Randy Dennis. Visitors are advised to avoid the designated Iguana Drop Zones in sections 131, 218, 345, and the Press Box. Those trampolines are for cold iguanas, not children.

Miami International Arena provides a number of popular options for guests if the nonstop party becomes too much. The Hero Chillout Room & Enrique Iglesias Experience is located between sections 207 and 209. The Cornwell & Hiaasen Reading Room, located behind section 110, is currently home to Farrell Seagull's multi-media exhibition "It Wasn't Me: Visions of Guilt in True Crime and Pop Music." The Marjorie Stoneman Douglas Memorial Lazy River of Grass is located at Gate 3.

Miami International Arena's artificial grass has fiber optic LEDs as a part of its design. This allows for the field itself to be a part of the party, as the color and patterns of the grass are able to sync to the music that's constantly playing during games, as well as help emphasize things that are happening in the game such as marking where players are in a different color and showing celebratory designs when a team gains a run or a hitter hits a home run. Some argue that this gives the Dale a home team advantage, as other teams are more than likely not used to playing with constantly shifting bright colored lights which might disorient them. Other teams often describe it as something along the lines of "A pain to play in, but cool to watch." The LEDs are made to be waterproof in order to not cause the field to become electrified due to the frequent flooding.

Controversies

Canada Moist Talkers player Elijah Bates has alleged that the pounding four-on-the-floor disco kicks that echo throughout the ballpark make it a difficult hitting field despite the short 305-ft outfield. In response, Dale fans have taken to bringing their own computers to play Roland 909 kick drums from the stands all at once, causing a thumping that can be heard as far north as West Palm Beach and as far south as Marathon.
