* Stan Pines of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' sets up one by the Mystery Shack in "The Time-Traveler's Pig". Not only are the rides poor ("I spared ''every'' expense!"), but they're ''unsafe'', as evidenced by the fake inspection certificates he has his niece and nephew put on them (one ride falls apart while Dipper is testing it). And his dunking booth is rigged so that the only thing that can budge the target is a blast from a futuristic rifle.

* The Carnival of Doom, in ''Series/AceLightning'', is a rundown funfair where the show's badguys rule the roost. There are two carnivals in the series - the creepy video game incarnation, and the Kent Bros. Carnival, set in the real world, where everything is rusty and creaks. It soon becomes home to skeletons, pigs, psychic jesters, and zombies. The mysterious thing is the carnival was closed for years and it is never explained why.

* Creator/DavidFosterWallace, in his ''[[AmericanNewspapers Harper's]]'' article "Ticket to the Fair" (republished as "Getting Away from Already Being Pretty Much Away from It All" in ''A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again''), is all about the 1993 Illinois State Fair (Wallace, although East Coast educated, was raised in Illinois and happened to be teaching at Illinois State at the time). The experience gives him a serious case of self-consciousness, and he doesn't have much fun at the fair. Not that he finds it completely depressing--there are things that he likes--but overall the fair made him pretty depressed about America.

* Dark's Den of Deformity from ''TabletopGame/{{Gloom}}'', which is also a CircusOfFear. Ringmaster Darius Dark's subpar freakshow includes bearded man Samson O'Toole, the terrifying clown Mister Giggles, and Elissandre DeVille - an illustrated lady who's too modest to show her tattoos to anyone. Dark might have had more luck with Thumbelisa, an woman who's just a few inches tall... but he promotes her as an opera singer despite her mediocre musical abilities.

* A [[ComicBook/DisneyDuckComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck Italian comic]] featured Scrooge building an amusement park based entirely on his life. It had 3 "rides": the first is a cleaning shoes simulation, the second is a simulation of searching gold in Klondike (complete with artificially recreated cold climate and animatronic bears harassing people) and the third is just a marathon of documentaries about economy. That's enough of a failure to bankrupt his entire fortune.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie", Max gets dragged by Goofy to the Lester's Possum Park, which seems to mainly consist of a malfunctioning animatronics show, one guy in a costume (who harasses Max until he hits him), and flash photography taken with live possums who aren't even contained.
