* In the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' expansion "A Matter of Family", Batgirl has to rescue some cops from this at one point. Considering it's an amusement park taken over by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, it doesn't come as much of a surprise.

* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'': In ''[[TheMovie Der Film]]'' Rabbit Team shoots a Ferris wheel off its supports, causing it to roll down towards the enemy team's encirclement as a distraction. They call this "Operation Mifune", after the scene in ''Film/NineteenFortyOne'', which they had watched the previous night. It works, and the Ooarai team is able to use the confusion to escape. As the wheel slows to a halt and topples over, the girls affectionately [[FunnyMoments thank "Ferris-senpai"/"Ferry-chan" for its help]].

* CardsAgainstHumanity has a white card labeled "An unhinged ferris wheel rolling toward the sea." There is a meme in the game's fandom that three cards should be used to form the sentence, "When you get right down to it, an unhindred ferris wheel rolling toward the sea is just a windmill full of corpses."

A Ferris Wheel is the most useful ride for TV and movies because it is both big and tall (a hero saving people from a spinning teacup ride gone amok isn't impressive) and slow (If a rollercoaster doing a hundred miles an hour leaves the tracks it boggles the mind that any hero but a {{Super Speed}}ster could find a convenient phone booth, change, and return in time to do anything but help gather up the dead). Ferris Wheels are also large open structures with a lot of rods and beams that let athletic types show their stuff. [[WeirdnessMagnet Having a hero in the area]] thus generally causes any Ferris Wheel to suffer a sudden massive breakdown.

* TruthInTelevision: Ferris wheel accidents do happen, although more often a single seat failing when the rider abuses it (they aren't typically fast enough to drop somebody who's just sitting) than the entire thing going haywire. You're still far more likely to die in the car ride to and from the amusement park/fair than from the Ferris wheel or any other ride there.
