Hyman Memorial Stadium in GTA Vice City.

The Hyman Memorial Stadium is a sports arena featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, located in Downtown Vice City.

Description

Stated to be completed in 1979, the stadium is possibly named as a reference to the hymen (implying a loss of virginity), or, more likely, to Hyman Roth, a Miami-based character in The Godfather Part II. The stadium is surrounded by a thin stretch of parking spaces and driveway, and also boasts a pair of helipads, one of which spawns a Maverick in GTA Vice City Stories.

Events

The stadium is known to host a variety of events throughout its appearance.

In GTA Vice City, the stadium's interior is depicted with a multipurpose arrangement, featuring an oval track on the outskirts surrounding a central arena. The oval track is used for Hotring -a NASCAR-style racing event, while the arena is adopted for used in Bloodring -a demolition derby event, and Dirtring -a dirt bike stunt show. The events are rotated every day (Hotring → Bloodring → Dirtring), and are only available to the player between 8:00 pm (20:00 hour) and 12:00 midnight (00:00 hour).

In GTA Vice City Stories, the stadium is adopted for use as a concert venue for Phil Collins, as seen in "Kill Phil: Part 2" and "In the Air Tonight". The stadium is also part of the "Hyman Memorial O.D.T. side-mission. The Vice City Mambas football team play here. It is possible that a professional baseball plays here, because in real life, the Florida Marlins play in the same stadium as the Miami Dolphins.

Music

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the following songs can be heard playing in the background during any of the events inside the stadium:

  • Frankie Goes to Hollywood - "Two Tribes" (featured on Wave 103)
  • Tesla - "Cumin' Atcha Live" (featured on V-Rock)
  • Gary Numan - "Cars" (featured on Wave 103)
  • Alcatrazz - "God Blessed Video" (featured on V-Rock)
