I thought about some features that could be put in the lobby.
You can fall and go hang gliding around the lobby.
You press it and it gives you a unit.
You can walk up to a stand to que up for a 3v3 game of volleyball. This game has unit payouts.
A small train (like ones that you’d see at the zoo) would travel around the beach on a rail in the shape of the wood path currently at the beach. You can ride it, like the monorail.
Relax and go surfing through the waves.
Rent a Yacht
Rent a yacht and invite some other players over. You can drive the yacht and go fishing in it.
