  the Ball Court
by catkin

The Ball court at Chichen Itza is the largest of its kind the main court being 189 yards long by 76 yards wide. The acoustics in the ball court are amazing as our guide demonstrated to us-the normal voice carries across 460 feet so that a conversation can easily take place between a person in the north end and someone in the south end as if they were sitting side by side.
