* 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}}.

The TropeNamer, of course, is the amusement park in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' that causes boys to turn into donkeys. (For a time at [[DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]], there was a nighttime entertainment district cheekily named after this place and aimed at adults and local clubgoers, though most of the clubs were family-appropriate.)

* Rhododendron in ''Theatre/TheGoldenApple'' gives this trope even more play than in ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', which it is an homage to. Hector leads Ulysses and his crew on a Big Spree, and Ulysses doesn't notice at first that [[DwindlingParty his companions has dwindled]] each successive time Hector passes around his flask.

Often overlaps with TheGamePlaysYou, AFeteWorseThanDeath, and/or CrapSaccharineWorld. Broader than AmusementParkOfDoom, because it can involve just about anything that is ostensibly entertaining.

* Similarly to Film/FromDuskTillDawn, Film/BordelloOfBlood centers around a brothel that is run by vampires to lure in men.
