* The tutorial level of ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'' is set in a Baltimore amusement park which was shut down years before after a badly maintained ferris wheel ''came off its axle'' during a ride, killing and injuring many people. The owner escaped justice, filed for bankruptcy and has since thrown his lot in with a group of local gangsters. He is, of course, your target.

* [[http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/mangyongdae-funfair Mangyongdae Funfair]] in North Korea is just about what you would expect. It's open, but nobody actually goes there for good reason. All of the rides are in states of grievous disrepair. But don't worry, the rides are safety tested... Forcefully, by local farmers.

* [[http://lostamusementparks.napha.org/Articles/WestVirginia/Lake%20Shawne%20Amusement%20Park.html Lake Shawnee Amusement Park]] in West Virginia, the site of a desecrated IndianBurialGround turned into a settler farm which saw three settler children killed by Indians and several Indians killed by settlers in retaliation, turned into an amusement park in the 1920s (purportedly the developer was unaware of the site's history). After six patrons were killed, the park shut down in 1966 amid rumours of the land being cursed and haunted, with the rides and structures still standing in varying states of disrepair. Tours are available in the days leading up to Halloween.

* The ''VideoGame/MysteryCaseFiles'' series has two of it's games set in the eerie Fate's Carnival. While in ''Madame Fate'', the carnival seems still in use and fairly innocuous (though a little bit unnerving), ''Fate's Carnival'' shows an abandoned, grisly and downright ''surreal'' version of it.

** The villain Arcade is known for his Murderworld, often by letting his victims think it's a real amusement park before the carousel tries to kill them. It also includes a giant pinball machine of death. Every now and then, the X-Men (and other Marvel heroes) wake up here and say "OhCrap, it's going to be one of ''those'' days." Arcade's actually [[CutLexLuthorACheck making lots of cash]] lately by letting supervillains use it as a training ground.

He had to do ''something'': the fact that he'd never actually managed to murder a hero in the place was [[VillainCred making him a laughingstock among supervillains]].

An AmusementPark without the amusement, unless you are amused by EverythingTryingToKillYou. Maybe the place has been abandoned for years, everything covered in filth and on the verge of falling apart. The rides are old, rusty, and creak eerily in the wind; if they still function at all they are horrifying deathtraps. Or maybe the park merely has been... refurbished by a new owner or owners; the place seems quite normal until the roller coaster brakes fail and the monster house turns out to be filled with lethal traps or ''real'' monsters... or both.

* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' has the Amusement Park where the Machines spend their time playing and having fun unless provoked by 2B or 9S. There's also a mad opera singer whose body is built from the corpses of fallen androids.

* ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} creates one called "Happyland" in ''The Forever People''. The attractions are all people being tortured, but [[InvisibleToAdults only the children can see what's really happening.]] Their parents, hurrying them along, are thus tricked into teaching their kids to ignore the suffering of others, which [[HopeCrusher Darkseid]] finds at least as satisfying as the actual torture.
