When they were first digging it around the main square, they came upon an Aztec pyramid, so they excavated it and worked it into the design. It's open to the sky, and when you walk by it, it's not behind glass so you could technically jump through the "windows" and climb on it if you wanted security to bust your ass. It's particularly beautiful when it rains.

The one at Universal is the best, but the ones over in Hollywood are also pretty neat. Nothing like those fabulous ones in Europe, though.
