* In ''Film/DeadEndDriveIn'', the titular prison camp for unwanted youths lures them in by pretending to be a normal drive-in cinema, and keeps them quiescent with B-movies, junk food, and unofficially sanctioned drug use.

* The Isle o' Smiles in ''DragonQuestVI'', reached by mobile island, containing a bar that ferries those who board it from Aridea. [[spoiler: It is, of course, a trap. The staff are actually demons, leading to Jamirus, second of the Archfiend's lieutenants.]] You end up using it as the dream world's water transport, at which point it doubles as an inn.

* In the 1990 ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie, The Shredder has created a "pleasure island" to lure misguided teens into his Foot Clan. His warehouse is located on the ficticious Lairdman Island and features rap music, pinball/video games, basketball, dancing, billiards, skateboarding, gambling, graffitiing, and tobacco use. Newcomers to the warehouse are told "Anything you guys want... We got. Anything you wanna' do... Do it." The naive protagonist in this instance is Danny Pennington (Michael Turney).

to:

* The chocolate factory in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' is arguably a positive version of this trope, in that the kids who get punished in this [[CrapsaccharineWorld magical wonderland of a death trap]] are {{asshole|victim}}s who deserve it anyway. Mind you, this doesn't always make it less disturbing.

* The ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Dungeon Train" features a constantly-moving ring-shaped train that tempts adventurers into boarding it. They are lured into constantly fighting monster after monster in the endless succession of carriages for an endless supply of loot trinkets, until they become a "boss" monster and eventually get killed by one of their successors.

Added DiffLines:

* The Land of Toys from ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio''. A big place for fun and lack responsibilities, but you will be transformed into a jackass. Well, it's the base of the {{Trope Namer|s}}.
