The entrance to the Davis Regal Theater lay just beyond the bench. In addition to hot air balloons and clouds, a dramatic sky with low fog formed the upper background. And rolling green hills formed the lower background.

A closer view of one end of the "Hot Air Ballooning While Cloud Watching" bench. Notice that one cloud looked like a turtle and the other cloud looked like a lizard. Notice the use of mosaic tiles to create the scene. The hills were covered in small trees. The crests of the hills were bordered in yellow. And the fog was created using grey-tone tiles.

A closer view of the top of the "Hot Air Ballooning While Cloud Watching" bench. The swirls were complete circles with marbles in the center. Those circles were surrounded by yellow stars.

A closer view of a balloon. Notice the two people in the basket of the balloon. Also notice that the grout around the trees in the hills was green, and the grout used in the sky was light blue.
