* The tunnel of love version appears in the sci-fi novel ''Literature/AgainstADarkBackground'' -- you can bail about beforehand, but the tunnel is so long that having sex is pretty much all you can do other than sit in the dark and be bored to death. The protagonist's LoveInterest gets her to go into the tunnel with him by promised to reveal a wish he'd made earlier (which of course was his wish to make love to his beautiful superior officer).

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': One chapter has Asahi and Youko going to an amusement park where this is one of the activities they did, under the suggestion of their friend Karen. She was hoping to [[GenerationXerox re-create a date Youko's parents had]], where riding in the boat made her father Genjirou "jump up and sing" with joy...but in reality, he was [[CannotCrossRunningWater freaking out because they were on open water]]. Thankfully, Youko is only [[{{Damphyr}} half-vampire]] so it doesn't bug her quite as much.

* ''Manga/GlassMask'' has put Maya in this situation twice, firstly with Yuu (a straightforward example) and later with Hayami (she was partly coerced into the boat, but it plays out like a romantic scene).[[/folder]]
