* 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.

* "Nuka-World" from the Boston Commonwealth in ''Videogame/{{Fallout 4}}'' was an unholy hybrid of this and SouvenirLand even before the apocalyptica nuclear war. With an advertising commercial ''proudly'' boasting that the park had met "every minimal safety standard", which admittedly wouldn't have been uncommon in the deregulated capitalistic CrapsaccharineWorld that was America during the Resource Wars, a jungle themed section stocked with ''live'' crocodiles and Cape Buffalo wandering around freely -- both very aggressive animals that real zoos do their best to keep well away from people -- and a river of Nuka-Cola Quantum, an addictive soft-drink formula saturated with the radioactive isotope Strontium-90, anyone entering it would have been taking their life into their hands. 200 years later, and it's a hellhole full of everything from mutated humanoid crocodiles and caffeine-hyped [[GiantEnemyCrab monstrous crab-mutants]] to bands of warring raiders and lunatics.

With an advertising commercial ''proudly'' boasting that the park had met "every minimal safety standard", which admittedly wouldn't have been uncommon in the deregulated capitalistic CrapsaccharineWorld that was America during the Resource Wars, you still weren't getting a decent enough warning of what to expect. Highlights of the place include a jungle themed section stocked with ''live'' crocodiles and Cape Buffalo wandering around freely -- both very aggressive animals that real zoos do their best to keep well away from people -- people, a reptile petting zoo that featured ''lethally'' poisonous snakes in it, a policy for injuries that amounts to "make the victim jump through legal hoops to get treatment, bill them for the treatment if they survive, and if they can't prove they're actual customers, kick 'em out and leave them to die", and a ride featuring a river of Nuka-Cola Quantum, an addictive soft-drink formula saturated with the radioactive isotope Strontium-90, Strontium-90. Needless to say, anyone entering it would have been taking their life into their hands. 200 years later, and it's a hellhole full of everything from mutated humanoid crocodiles and caffeine-hyped [[GiantEnemyCrab monstrous radioactive crab-mutants]] to bands of warring raiders and lunatics.lunatics, although it's hard to say whether it's actually much more of an AmusementParkOfDoom now than it was ''before''.

** In the episode "Bart Carny" starts with them visiting one of these; eventually they befriend a carny and his son, who run the ring-toss game. After Homer accidently gets the game impounded, leaving the two homeless, the Simpsons lets them live in their house for awhile, only for the carnies to lock them out and take over it as squatters. It takes Homer tricking them with a fake bet to get them out.

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretIslandOfDrQuandary'' begins at a carnival whose three main attractions are a ripoff "fortune teller", a Ferris wheel that's clearly about to fall apart any day now, and a midway game that sucks your soul into a doll and strands you on an island if you win.

* ''SheepInTheBigCity'' had "Oxymoron's Happy Fun Family Park", an amusement park organized by the notoriously incompetent Oxymoron Inc. The park is ''literally'' just an empty, muddy field strewn with trash and broken glass, with the marketing being based on that you're supposed to tailor your own experience at the park - in other words, just running around using your imagination.

* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "The Carnival of Doctor Kalihari", where the titular carnival is only crappy because a crook and his cronies have taken it over and are using it to fleece people. The Defenders (four of whom are exposed to a shrinking potion, meaning most of the episode is spent trying to obtain the antidote before they shrink away to nothing) eventually return the carnival to its rightful (and honest) owners, who give all of them lifetime passes.
