- Tutorial music by Squid Squad, a less intense version of Splattack!
- In fact, this is the only area in the entire game that plays this song in particular. An even less intense looped version can be heard in the Shooting Range.
- A downed UFO can be found in the area with Octarian ink surrounding it. This is the same UFO the Squid Sisters mention in the beginning of the game.
- A slightly altered version of the map can be found in the Octo Valley Mission Unidentified Flying Object.
