* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon 2: Explorers of Time/Darkness'' features one of these in the penultimate level, the aptly-named Hidden Land. The Hidden Land is so-called because it is ''only exists within a split second of time,'' meaning that [[TimeStandsStill time must be stopped]] before it can be visited.

* ''Literature/TheLostWorld'' was also adapted as an A&E miniseries, in association with the ''WalkingWithDinosaurs'' guys, starring Bob Hoskins, James Fox, and Peter Falk. It was a bit more faithful to the source, but - more importantly - the deviations they made were [[AdaptationDistillation actually effective]].

** ''Secrets of the Surface World'' supplement. One of these exists on a plateau in the Amazon rain forest. A British expedition reached it and returned, without any proof of their findings but with a fortune in uncut diamonds (a ShoutOut to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel ''Literature/TheLostWorld''). There's a hint that the plateau connects to the Hollow Earth mentioned above.

* Atlantis from "The Atlantis Enigma" in BlakeAndMortimer. An empire created before recorded history, it was destroyed (along with much of the Earth's surface) by a falling meteor and the ensuing tidal waves; the survivors eventually build a new empire in vast underground caverns under the Atlantic, which is what Blake and Mortimer discover. They've progressed to the point of becoming an AdvancedAncientAcropolis, mastering anti-gravity technology, laser weaponry, and space travel, among other things.
