Amusement Mile is a waterfront amusement park in Gotham which has a tendency to be shown as run-down and shady.
In addition to this it is often affiliated with the Joker; often in serving as a hideout for him and/or Harley Quinn. This fits in a long history of Joker using amusement parks in Gotham as a base with notable examples being found in the Killing Joke and the Dark Knight Returns (which could in later continuity both be identified as Amusement Mile).
In Other Media
Amusement Mile appears in the film Joker as a place of employ for the clowns of Gotham City.
Amusement Mile is the location of the climax for the film Birds of Prey. Here it is where Black Mask and the Birds of Prey arrange to make a trade-off with the Bertinelli Diamond but it breaks out into an all-out fight.
One notable location of the park is an abandoned funhouse called The Booby Trap.
Batman: Arkham Series
The Amusement Mile appears in Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Origins. In the games, it is the harbourside district of Old Gotham and later converted into part of Arkham City by Hugo Strange and Mayor Quincy Sharp. However, the entire district is submerged weeks before the prison opens, due to land subsistence from construction. Within Arkham City, it serves as part of the Joker's turf, though it also provides the hideouts for Bane, Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy.

Amusement Mile appears in the game as a part of the open-world Gotham City. Countless attractions, games and rides can be found throughout the park, with some providing Gold Brick after completion. During the second level ("Harboring a Criminal "), Batman and Robin chase the Joker through the Amusement Mile and later battle him at the front. After "Asylum Assignment", Harley Quinn and Scarecrow can be found and battled in the Amusement Mile.
The Amusement Mile appears in the open world, to the west of Gotham City. Joker and Harley Quinn's lair can be found within the funhouse. Gold Bricks can be found by either completing various tasks and mini-games. Killer Croc can also be found and fought at the Amusement Mile's entrance.
