* ''VideoGame/MaxPayne 2'' features a level in which the hero shoots it out with villains in an abandoned fun house of horror that mirrors his own story. Three times: fighting your way in, fighting your way out (with control of the mechanisms to use as traps), and on fire. The first time is a subversion, as it's a cool-down level in a game that so far featured EverythingTryingToKillYou. Even after Max's monologue {{lampshade|Hanging}}s the harmlessness of the cliché haunted house animatronics, players are still likely to jump from the non-lethal surprises, with guns drawn.

* "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/mr-bones-wild-ride Mr. Bones' Wild Ride]]", a {{memetic|Mutation}} story of a rollercoaster someone built in ''RollercoasterTycoon 2''. The ride seems innocent enough on the surface... but then the unlucky participants find out it is long enough to take ''four years'' to complete. And once they finish the ride? They find themselves walking down the path which leads back to the ride's entrance... Complete with a giant sign which tells them, "The ride never ends".

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' has Krazy Kremland, an amusement park full of brambles and massive Zinger hives, built near a disgusting swamp. The roller coasters are even broken down, [[MineCartMadness making the rides fast paced fights for your life.]]

* ''VideoGame/ApeEscape'' (the first one of the PlayStation) had a deadly Amusement Park of Doom to traverse through in the second-to-last level. Everything from [[MonsterClown an evil killer clown]], a deadly remote-controlled car and a deadly roller coaster ride.

* The textbook example is any amusement park SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has moved into. In ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', the story quoted above, he even leaves the grinning corpse of the estate agent sitting on a carousel horse as a "welcome" sign.

* Some amusement parks invoke this trope ''on themselves'' as a means of tongue-in-cheek self-promotion. At Six Flags Great America, crowds waiting in line for "The Demon" are entertained by recorded accounts of how an actual demon has possessed the roller coaster, gets spotted by terrified witnesses, and fiercely resists humorous attempts to kill and/or exorcise it. Likewise, the "Batman" indoor coaster at the same park displays fake newsreels for waiting crowds, some of which imply that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has sabotaged the ride and turned it into this trope.

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker (who else?) sets up shop in one of these in the [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE9BeAClown "Be a Clown"]] episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. It comes complete with giant robotic clown and authentic Houdini water trap.

* ''Manga/FrankenFran'' features an amusement park that is a mostly harmless (if boring) SouvenirLand...unless the animatronics malfunction. Then everything goes horrifically wrong.
